Personal music history

I started singing aged four or five together with my mother - but that was more traditional folk music;) At my sixth birthday I got "Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son" by IRON MAIDEN - and that's it! Since then I have been a rock and metal maniac;) I founded my first real band in the year 2000 together with a guy called "Bummi" Buchberger - SERENITY's guitarist;) We covered rock songs of QUEEN and QUEEN and sometimes QUEEN;);) EUROPE, VAN HALEN and so on. That was the best occupation I could have! I'm still singing in this rock cover band called SCENE ONE - with really great musicians!

Goals for the future

SERENITY headlining Wacken in 2013;)
