Lula macht Musik, die schmeckt wie ein trockener Musikmartini (geschüttelt, nicht gerührt), wie geschaffen für eine Party mit John Steed & Emma Peel (Bela B.)
Born sometime in the 20th Century, in a tiny village at the foot of the Alps, Lula’s preferred pastime during her formative years was to lock herself away in the seclusion of her bedroom and sing Blondie songs.
After realizing her slumbering talents would remain undiscovered forever if she remained in this beautiful but solitary part of the earth, she packed her bags and headed for the big city lights of Berlin.
One of her early songs proved so tantalizing to Bela, he suggested they re-record it together. The result was the sublimely beautiful track “Leave” which was later featured in the cult cinema film “Kaliber Deluxe”.
Lula was also drafted in to help with song writing duties on Bela’s ambitious and long awaited debut solo album “Bingo”. Amongst other pearls, they came up with the delicious duet “Hab keine Angst”. The two performed the song on the Rock am Ring stage as the headline act on the final day in front of 80,000 people. The album reached no.2 in the German charts.
It also came to pass that the legendary Lee Hazlewood travelled to Berlin a few years ago, to sing on a track which Bela and Lula had written especially for the great man. Around the same time Lee was also coming to the final stages of his own self-proclaimed “last ever studio album”. And he was searching for a vocal partner for the song ’“Nothing“. Lee met Lula, quickly fell in love with her stunning voice, and invited her to sing on his historic final album.
The songs were produced under the watchful eyes of Wayne Jackson, who is also a band member of "Lula", and co-produced the Bingo album for Bela B.
