Friend 'n Fellow (GER)
They are perfectly comfortable in the company of the best musicians of their genre, and have been recognised with respect by stars like Ray Charles, Al Jarreau, Marianne Faithful or Keb 'Mo. The great legend of the Blues, Luther Allison, was their mentor and supporter, teacher and enthusiastic fan, to which he "outed" himself during their common European tour in 1997.
The combination of Constanze Friend's expressive voice and Thomas Fellow's masterful acoustic guitar playing crosses stylistic borders - their own compositions represent a tasteful mixture of soul, blues and jazz influences, performed in a dynamic way that thrills audiences everywhere they play. A double portion of magical voice and rich guitar-grooves!
