Herbert Grönemeyer is an artist unlike any other in German music. In the course of his career, he has already sold over 17 million albums. He speaks a universal, immediately understandable language that is nevertheless quite unmistakable, charismatic and stubborn. Grönemeyer's artistic career began at the Schauspielhaus Bochum, of which he became musical director at the age of only 20. In the following years he worked in Hamburg and Stuttgart; his film role in 'Das Boot' made him famous. But his true love remained music: during his time in Stuttgart, the album 'Grönemeyer' was released; in 1980 his second album 'Zwo'. In 1984 he had his breakthrough with his fifth album 'Bochum'. In 1985 he followed the example of Bob Geldof's Band Aid and recorded the charity single 'Nackt im Wind' (Naked in the Wind) with the band for Africa; in 1986 he played in front of 100,000 people at the 'Anti-WAAhnsinns Festival' against the nuclear reprocessing plant in Wackersdorf. Twice in the nineties he received the music prize Echo as best national artist. His record 'Mensch' became the best-selling record in German music history. Since 1999 he has been running his own label, Grönland Records, where his musical curiosity is as boundless as his political commitment. Grönemeyer's world is open and colourful, which is tirelessly reflected in his music.
