For the release of “Brand new Day”, the first recording under the name “4 Strings & Susanne Teutenberg”, I’d like to share my little story with you.
On June, 2001, I sang on a friend’s wedding where one of the guests was the singer / songwriter Jan Loechel (known for example for his work with ATB, Blank & Jones and Guru Josh) that asked me to record one of his songs for a then unkknown Trance project called 4 Strings.
That’s how the song “Take me away (into the night)” cam...e to me. In one afternoon we’ve worked for 3 hours in his studio and the vocals were recorded. Even though I didn’t know much about Trance, it was a lot of fun and the beginning of something very special to me.
“Take me away” became a great sucess in many countries. It reached the Top 40 in Germany, Belgium, The Netherlands and the UK where it peaked in the top 15 and has become a bit of a Trance classic since then.
Maybe it was my lack of involvement in the Trance scene or the fact that I wasn’t so interested in touring I was never credited on my work which was fine as I was just proud to hear my voice on the radio, in parties and on TV and the Viva N1 Rotation.
Many hits followed. Diving, Turn It Around and Let It Rain among the bigger ones. Now I’m pleased to finally share my name on this new 4 Strings collaboration. This, I owe to fans who reached out to me via social media through the years.
And I am especially happy to reconnect with Carlo Resort and to present to you our newest work together again!
