About

HermannPICHermann Stampfel is a songwriter, lyricist, singer and publisher living in New York City.

Hermann owns Approval Records and Stamp of Approval Music (A.S.C.A.P) and has a huge catalog of music in retro, r&b, pop and country.

Growing up in Brooklyn, Hermann listened to a variety of music: from Elvis to Irving Berlin; from rock and roll to gospel.  He began writing lyrics at the age of 18 based on life’s experiences, both good and bad and typical of the problems most young people face. Everyone can relate to Hermann’s songs.

In l979 Hermann met Proffesor Leo Alfassy who was the music conductor for the Gottscheer Choir. Hermann was second tenor. This choir (still performing today) is made up of men and women who have migrated from Austria and settled in Queens, N.Y.

Hermann’s first professional single was in 1976, with producer Tony Di Riziano and Tara International records based in Ireland, under the name of “Stich”.

Since that time, most of Hermann’s songs have been produced by Thomas Roller Productions in Sherman Oaks, CA. and five CD albums were released by the group: JB and the Stich Two Band.

Now with today’s technology most of these songs are available as mp3 downloads under the name: StampMan;   These downloads are available at CD Baby, Apple iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, Google Store, and Rhapsody. Links are available on the home page.

You can listen to short mp3 samples available here.
