HometownMemories-V2 Graz – my hometown. To write a musical homage about this town is quite challenging. So many famous artists were born here (or started a worldwide career from here) and also one of the greatest Austrian bands (whom I already had the honour to work together with)  - OPUS - decided to settle down near Graz too.        

City Walk_V5_FINAL Being aware of these legends from Graz, I wasn't intimidated but continued my plans for this project. I'm proud to live in a town that influenced so many artists before!

It took me 16 songs to conclude this topic - split up on two CDs:
  • The Inner Planets:
    Mercury - Venus - Earth - Mars
  • The Outer Planets:
    Jupiter - Saturn - Uranus - Neptune - Pluto
