NAMM Time is Family Time

No matter where I live on this planet, I always miss someone. Be it my family, a childhood friend, college roommates or my music colleagues. It’s because we’re all spread out across the world, doing what we love and staying in touch with FaceTime and Skype.
And in the meantime… I miss them.
That’s why I love NAMM: It gives us a good reason to pilgrimage to Anaheim. Yes, we’re here to check out gear, too, but mostly to get together and catch up.

Gracias, Bryan.

My first day back in LA and I am loving every second of it. Very much in contrast to the German stereotype, I haven’t made plans up until this morning. I feel ‘going with the flow’ always holds fun little surprises. Like today’s, when the one and only Bryan Adams showed me this vegan Mexican restaurant on Melrose Ave, Gracias Madre. If you find yourself in Beverly Hills some time, get their green smoothie. Super delicious!

STREET CONCERT MARA(THON)

donations42 concerts in 42 hours–
That was quite the marathon!

As part of the charity campaign ‘Radio 7 Spendenmarathon’ my friend and guitarist Siggi Schwarz and I teamed up to do a street concert tour.

We performed my charity song ‘Uns gehört die Welt’ just about anywhere –on market squares, in cafes, bars and in shopping malls. And as unglamorous this sounds, it actually was a lot of fun!

Best feeling: all donations go straight to the ‘Radio 7 Drachenkinder’ charity, supporting terminally ill children and their families.

You can make donations throughout the year!

Fun At Freudenhaus

My friend Patrik owns a studio in Berlin that puts a high pass filter on my mood any time: Freudenhaus. You should go ahead and google-translate its name.
On that note– my bestie Franzi and I recorded a song together ♡ We harmonize indeed.

ON AIR

I love talking. I love music.
So I guess, it was about time I put these two things together –and host a radio show!
I’m on air every Sunday presenting the ‘Radio 7 Top 20’ chart show ♡

Midnight Thought #5

That you are too thick
That you are too thin
Too loud, too shy
To fit right in–
Too queer, too prim,
too young, too old
Is the biggest lie
Ever been told.

Who is user 53?

It’s official. I am a radio babe now. Producing, recording, having fun with boards.
