just an illusion, my love

Processed with VSCO with q2 preset

As I am writing this, I have already returned to Germany, I am sitting in my studio in Berlin. After already having performed songs from my new album in France, Italy and Germany, I finally started my tour in Russia the first week of September.

It has been two years since I visited Russia the last time. Sometimes, when you fall in love with someone, you also fall in love with a city; I fell in love with Moscow but Moscow broke my heart. Two years ago, during my „Strange New World“ tour in Russia, I still felt that heartbreak but that was also the time in which I started working on ILLUSION. Now, that my album is already out for over a year and we wrote songs about my heartache, I feel that I am finally free to fall in love with Moscow again. That is the feeling I had, when I started my first unplugged mini tour in Moscow.

I once again want to thank my incredible band Hannes Kelch and Eric Krueger as everyone of our concert agency, especially Dmitry and Daryana. And I want to thank everyone who came to my shows and made these evenings so intimate yet fun. Thanks for sharing this experience with me! You make me shine like a star 🙂
