Rock Baer is a multi-instrumentalist from Cologne and was born in 1991.He grew up with classical music, jazz and rock music. As a five year old kid he began to learn playing piano. Being eleven years old, he began to play church organ and with fourteen he learned to play drums, acoustic and bass guitar and several other instruments. Since 2008 Rock Baer was part of several bands where he played several instruments. 2008 he formed together with the brothers Leon (guitar) and Simon (drums) the band Dynachord who played a mixture of progressive rock and metal. Rock Baer played bass guitar, but they mainly played instrumental pieces, because they could not find a singer. Besides, Rock Bear worked on his first own songs which had relation to pop and electronic music. In 2010 they found a singer and the name Dynachord was changed into Anorthic. As Anorthic they had a lot of local success in the Cologne region. But the band Anorthic spit up in 2011, because the singer left the band. Later that year Leon and Simon joined the very successful Cologne-based metal band Slamdown.
