About Fabulous Sceneries

Fabulous Sceneries

In 2009 I recorded my first album called Fabulous Sceneries which was released in 2010. What an adventure! The album is my personal treasure-box containing 12 songs I wrote over the years and which I would like to share with you. The songs are also my personal journey through time and different places. In fact the journey leads towards Fabulous Sceneries, hence the album title. If you would like to accompany me you will find sunflower fields, stardust, dreams, love waltzes, rain words, deserted beaches in autumn as well as gentle moments of love.

A Special Thank You

The work in the studio was exhausting but at the same time also interesting and enriching. It was fun choosing the songs from my repertoire (let's hope I picked the right ones!), to polish up the arrangements, to find musicians who accompanied me in the studio, and last but not least to decide on the final order of the songs. I would especially like to thank Amin Jan Sayed who guided me through the recording process with his valuable advice. Finally, thanks to his fine ears, he also added the finishing touch to the album sound. Also I would like to thank the musicians who invested their time and effort to play on the album. The booklet was yet another challenge. But here I was lucky to meet a friend who supported me with great enthusiasm. Thank you so much!
Thanks also to Céline who took the photos for the booklet-cover and to Albert who sent me the wonderful picture of the sunflower field!
However, there are also many people who have always supported me, especially Céline and Gwendo who, whenever they have the time, look carefully through my French lyrics and give me precious adivce on them. But I would also like to thank my husband, my family and my friends who always encouraged me to never give up! Without you, this album would not exist! THANK YOU and big hug!
