Folk music was the music I grew up with, the music my father listened to,
sang and played when I was a child.

At the age of six I started to learn the violin, an instrument which
has always captivated me. On my 10th birthday I got my first guitar as
a birthday present.
The real turning point in my young life were two concerts, one of John Denver and another one of Joan Baez in Hamburg, which both had a profound impact on me. I was so much inspired that I started to write small instrumental pieces for guitar and violin and later, at the age of 13 my first song “Diese Welt ist voller Wunder”, a song based on my love and respect for nature and my belief in peace and harmony.

When I was 14, I wrote my first two English songs “Lucky days” and “Wild horses” and then “Jahre vergehen”, the title song of our first CD, which was recorded in 1996 and released in March 1997. Music trips to Ireland, Scotland and England have influenced our music as well. In music I find a way of saying everything I want to say and feel and I will always be fascinated how music dissolves the boundaries between cultures and languages.
