The sound of the new album is constantly changing. It is terrifying and exciting at the same time! I´ve decided to let go and let the songs shape-shift for a little while more...
Not a very easy exercise for me!
Thank you person responsible for rain for making it stop the minute we went on stage, thank you Carsten (and your gang) for the invitation and for serving hot tea ON STAGE (how Rock' n' Roll is that?!?!), thank you Schallmeister for the crazy good sound (no words - just love!) and thank you all for coming, freezing and listening - you rock!
And by the way: let me introduce our wonderful sub-drummer JANNIS
Düsseldorf, von Herzen DANK! Selten so viel Spass gehabt!!

Songwriting with a view - there is no place on earth I´d rather be and there´s nothing I would love to do more!
France, you are treating us well! THANK YOU

This week: writing-heremitage with the most wonderful view and grand-piano! I´ll let you hear the results...
This is (hopefully) going to be the last writing session for the new album. I´ll have to let my 2nd baby move out soon...scary (-:
******************************WE LOVE TURKEY*********************************
So etwas passiert, wenn die Jungs die Mädchen (schwanger!) im Studio alleine lassen.
Von solchen Songs hab ich noch ein paar in der rosa Schublade liegen. Die gehen da zusammen aufs Klo und trinken Latte bis sie irgendwann vielleicht mal raus dürfen!
Meine Freundin Anne sagte dazu nur: "Oder pPosecco? Oder Aperol Spritz? Oder 45er mit Milch...mmh, Mädchengesöff mit Mädchenmucke..."
SO SIEHT´S AUS!
Maternity leave (-:
3 band kids are going to be born this spring - it´s a very good year! We are going to be on tour with 5 kids this summer....LOVE THAT!
My boys, Laura and me have been recording 6 songs to find out what we want our next album to sound like. It´s wonderful to work like this - very open and very playful. We don´t have to nail it yet... Everything is still possible!
Our sound engineer Marcus Ugljanin was the man - again! Thank you so much
We are now going to take a short baby-break...
We´ll be on the road again this summer (France) and in autumn (Germany) with new songs and a lot of kids (-:

The first edition is already sold out so we had to re-press....
Thank you so much for buying our record! It means the world to us...
There is a big debate about copy right and the value of all kinds of art in Europe right now. I think that is very important! This might not be the right place to discuss this but:
If we don´t get payed for what we do we can´t pay our bills...it is as easy as that!
So please help us to continue doing what we love the most: MUSIC
"Music was my first love and it will be my last" -
