Actually it’s been a long time . Actually to some of you might say it has been forever. 😛
So here is what has been going down the last 15 years.
Some of you might still know me as 16 year old Vera Böhnisch, a little chubby, a little insecure and contestant in the very first edition of highly succesfull austrian primetime TV show Starmania.
I didn’t win. Was I sad ? Kinda. Did I still make the most of it ? Heck yes.
It meant signing a major label deal by the sweet age of 16 before the actual ending of the show which I kept 2 albums and dozens of singles. Next to all of the above I somehow finished highshool, went to vienna, made some more music. Drifted a little into underground electronic stuff. Became part of the austrian Hiphop combo Supercity Soundsystem. Played tons of live shows. Started economic studies on a viennese university. In 2009 I won an amadeus award for best song with my single „Dear Ladies “ which I still love to date. We released another album which was kinda ahead of it’s time and no one really understood.I moved to mannheim to pursue a university degree in music / culture management and that’s about the time most people kind of lost track of Vera Böhnisch.
But it didn’t stop there.
I finished my degree with short stopovers in London and Munich and started to write loads of urban dance tunes that brought me to many festivals, clubs and the likes. Somehow I didn’t really get the whole music industry anymore and ever since I’ve been around so long decided to take a step back until I figured out in what direction the whole thing is going.
Fell in love, got married, had two babies & a dachshund, founded & built up a company and didn’t really mind about music all that much. (except for that occasional concert, special highlight or boozy Karaoke ditch ). Fast forward to now.
I kind of had the feeling the story isn’t quite done yet and the last chapter is still to be told. Let’s see where my book takes me.
