The folk pop duo from Cologne provided one of last year’s great music business success stories. With their debut album “Shooting Stars & Fairy Tales” (Sony Music), Mrs. Greenbird – consisting of singer Sarah Nücken and guitarist and singer Steffen Brückner, who have been making music together as a creative duo since 2006 – scored 2013’s first No.1 in the German album charts, and with more than 100,000 records sold announced gold status! Mrs. Greenbird’s music is multifaceted – blending their strong vocals with their very own, self-created style:
Mrs. Greenbird masterfully knows how to delight the fans at its live shows as well. Their club dates were mostly sold-out and altogether more than 30,000 fans witnessed the band’s extraordinary live qualities. Cologne newspaper “Kölnische Rundschau” raved:„Sarah Nücken presented herself with a voice that gets under your skin from the very first beat. Haunting, crystal clear, with flattering heights, and most of all with perfect intonation, she made the songs pure joy to listen to. Her congenial music and life companion Steffen Brückner naturally provided his part, blending his guitar into a wonderful, harmonious unity with Nücken’s voice.“
At the German industry meeting, Live Entertainment Award (LEA), the tour was recently awarded Best Club Tour 2013. Two German ECHO nominations, multiple celebrated festival appearances in the same year, and the performances at Katie Melua’s sold-out tour in November complete the picture.
Currently, the duo is in Nashville until the end of June to record their second album with producer Marshall Altman at the legendary RCA studios. Sarah and Steffen played live at the famous “The Bluebird Café” at the end of May, already presenting some of their new songs. In August/September 2014, Mrs. Greenbird will be playing selected festivals in Germany together with their band, to present their very special blend of country, folk, and pop there as well.
The new album by Mrs. Greenbird, to be released on Sony Music as well, will be out in autumn 2014, and from mid-February 2015, the band will going on an extensive tour across Germany, Austria and Switzerland once again.
