For most of the last decade I’ve toured as a singer with several bands and been featured as a vocalist on eight albums and several singles. Sometimes credited, sometimes as a ghost.
Of course, it can be difficult to be creative and original while singing for someone else. But starting a real career for myself as a solo artist would have meant choosing just one genre.
And, since I love everything from classical to funk, that seemed impossible. Better yet I was signed by Universal Music Publishing in 2010 to be working as a songwriter fulltime, also proud and grateful my contract was renewed in 2013 and again in 2016.
I was based in Hamburg until 2015 and loved working at my studio which I started a few years back with Alex Geringas and Bernd Klimpel. But as a topliner I traveled often to collaborate with different producers in places like London, Los Angeles, New York, Tokyo and Seoul.
I´m thankful I got to spend my days making music and helping various artists express what´s on their minds and in their hearts.
Opening up, being vulnerable with other writers, sharing all these intense emotions and pouring it all into a song can be exhausting and exhilarating at the same time but I wouldn´t change it for anything in the world.
The opportunity to experience different cultures and cities and to connect with people around the world inspires my songwriting and feeds my soul. I´m ready to hop on a plane – anytime to anywhere as long as there is great music to be created.
In 2015 I decided to move to L.A. and received my Greencard as an „Alien of extra ordinary ability“, which I´m super proud of. And finally after wandering down many roads I´ve found my perfect and actually favorite job - as a DJane. Playing all types of music, creating my own records and music videos and being supported by a team of such dedicated music lovers and amazing people believe in me is like living a dream everyday.
My first single, a cover version of „Eye Of The Tiger“ has been released 29th of November 2016 on Mashtag Records, a label I started with my business partner Alex Hilton. The song was produced by Grammy und BMI Award winning producer Alex Geringas (Jessie J, Kelly Clarkson, Leona Lewis, Pussy Cat Dolls, Anastacia) and reached #21 in the german dance charts and #8 in the video charts.
The second and third single are already finished and have been produced by Thom Bridges and will be released in 2017.
