1. Tell us a bit about your background and how you became a country music artist?

I grew up in the small city of Aschendorf in North Germany, next to the Dutch border. My parents owned a channel ship, and so it was easy to understand that they made me become a ship broker as a young man. I became infected by the country music that we heard via the American Forces Radio and I started to write my first original song ‘The Trucker’ under the table of my ship brokers work desk. At this point I had already hitchhiked the whole of the USA, sponsored by my Grandmother. I visited the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville enjoying George Jones and Johnny Cash at that time! Read More
