Nils Koppruch was a German singer-songwriter who also worked as a freelance artist. Strongly influenced by American folk, blues, Americana, and bluegrass, Koppruch built a dedicated following as the front man for Finch from 1996 to 2006. After Finch dissolved, Koppruch continued on as a solo artist performing in a style he called “city folk.” He toured throughout Germany, Austria and Switzerland, gaining loyal fans along the way. Koppruch released two solo albums, The Hell Do (V2 Records) in 2007 and Caruso in 2010. In 2012, he collaborated with Gisbert zu Knyphausen on an album entitled simply, I. Nils Koppruch was 46 when he passed away on October 10, 2012. Cause of death was not immediately released.
