Ihr trademark: red hair, which has currently gone back to her natural brown due to practicality reasons. Carmen is touring Europe right now. In a campervan. Rock ´n Roll reloaded!

What a great adventure! Whose idea was it to tour with a campervan?
Early December 2016 I suddenly felt this urge of “going away and exploring the world”, because I came across this artist online who travelled trhough America with her boyfriend, who is a film producer.

Which countries will you go to?
We will travel through Italy, France, Spain, the South of England, Holland and we are back in Germany for the summer. Then there will be Switzerland, Austria, Croatia – just where the sun takes us.

How long will you be on tour?
We started on 1st April and we will be back in Berlin on 31st October, so seven months in total.

Hihi, there is no doubt about how much I love my red hair. But to see the world and to be on the road means I´d rather miss hairdresser appointments and exploring what´s around me. So I went back to my natural brown for the time being.

First Vinyl
Oh, that was a “Hitparade-Vinyl” by Nena and some other German “New German Wave” stars. This was playing all day long without a break, however I did always swap in between to, no joke, the smurfs.

I am not fussed really, but I do prefer „as vegan as possible“.

Your wardrobe
I prefer comfortable colourful dresses. Combined with leggings and FlipFlops in the summer J.

I love my E-Piano – Korg SV1! That´s my baby! Just a simply, beautiful, convincing Rhodes and Piano Sound.

Vinyl board/shelf
A colourful mix of Pop, Indie and Alternative, for example Sting, Ane Brun, Feist, Lykke Li, Skunk Anasie, Tina Dico, Ellie Goulding, Florence and the machine, Adele, Alanis Morissette, Coldplay, Mumford & Sons, Sia, The Swell Season and so on…

Every now and then a small coffee liquor.

Ennos favourite lullaby
It is a self-written song called„Still, so still“.

What do you miss most whilst being on tour?
Nothing so far with all happiness.
