MAKING A NEW RECORD! 

Hello world! Perhaps disappearing is not such a bad thing! While I was missing in action for you I was searching for the right creative team to create a new EP with! Searching a producer is like taking shots in the dark, there is a sea of creative people out there. How do you find a life partner? It's kind of the same. But through power of connection, kind and caring friends and musicians, band members of mine and also struck of luck I bumped into a pretty talented creative, Brendan Davies, who cares to bring out the essence of me and and my songs and possesses pretty amazing qualities to create new sounds, electronic textures, work with drums and bass and the whole mesh of things we call music. We are cooking up a new record together with the drummer, David Green, guitarist Vilasini Venkatesh, and Vulcan String Quartet. More to come soon! If you want to support the making of this EP you can buy more of my last CDs/digital files of my previous album here and gift them to your friends. 

OUT OF MY NORMAL BOUNDARIES 

Why not challenge myself sometimes? Some new music is coming out of the mixture of life experiences, emotions, longings, and just sounds that fly around in our subconsciousness and wakefulness. 

 

PIANO POETRY - LISTEN 

Overwrought by the swirl of life and being afraid that time and admin work is overtaking my creative potential and realisations, I have decided to sit down and improvise my feelings and emotions into Piano Music which I hope will grow into a compilation - "Piano Poetry." Enjoying your free listening. 

LIVE VIDEO FROM CD RELEASE CONCERT! 

My band and I started our Listen, Feel & Wonder Tour in September 2015, bringing "White Dandelions" (in German "Pusteblume") album to many cities and small towns in Germany. This particular video was made in October 2015 during our official CD release concert in Zurich, Switzerland. Heartfelt thanks to Natasha Afanasyeva, my dear friend, for making these videos and making amazing slideshows from her own photos.

NEW BAND MEMBERS 

Carried away in the whirl of work, I failed to mention that we have two new musically intuitive & amazing band members who joined us earlier this year: Our Bass player is Lisa Scannel (www.lisaonbass.ch). She accompanied Mick Hucknall (Simply Red), Donna Summer, Nelly Furtado, Tom Odell, Hurts, Loreen, Leona Lewis, Marc Sway, Seven, Daniel Powter, Dionne Bromfield and Katherine Jenkins, played at Art on Ice in 2009 - 2015. Our Guitarist is Patrick "Pady" Odermatt (www.padymusic.ch) has played in many rock, pop, country, and funk bands. From the first practice we loved that the wall of sound we created!

FILMING A VIDEO 

Thanks to my spirit of perseverance, faith, my supportive husband, friends and an invisible flow and force that brings us together - I found a very cool and creative team of young film makers and artists to film a White Dandelions video with! So, I flew to Finland last week...

PLAYING LIVE 

... For a terrific time at the AKI and the Esse Concerts in Zürich and Winterthur. We all escaped our daily routine life and got carried away just the way we wanted!

NEW SINGLE RELEASE: SNAPSHOTS OF SKY! 

Snapshots of Sky
is a new baby that just popped out into the world. It's a love story of two real people who went through a rough journey to find each other and then to understand that they belong together like no other.

"And if the red, red sun
Sets the earth on fire,
I'll take a plane to meet you,
We'll dine in the light,
and if they sky slips away,
and all the things are done,
our love still remains."
