The vocals are a crucial part of the music from Bus Stop Dreams. It’s what makes the song a song. Below are presentations of the people we’re fortunate enough to work with on the Bus Stop Dreams’ songs, people who are able to channel, through their voices, everything we want to express through the music and that also add something special from themselves.

Sonja Hewer

Sonja Hewer was born in 1972 in Merzig, Germany. After some years of touring the local Irish Pubs of Germany and Luxemburg, she met Alexandra Schwarz during a concert and they founded the duo SoLexx in 1996. The duo released their debut CD in 2007, “Songs In a New Dress” and are planning a new album release during 2012.

Sonja is most known, though, as the lead singer and songwriter in the band Sonic Season. The band was formed in 2001 by Sonja, Alexandra, Bernd Schäfer and Alain Graf and released their debut album the same year, “Indian Summer”. Up until today the band has released another three albums, “Idaho” (2004), “Mother Earth” (2006) and “Changes and Steadiness (2012), with a music style that reaches from ballads and american folk rock to bossa nova, pop and rock music.

A highlight of the career of Sonic Season came in 2004 as they was awarded the first place at the “Deutscher Rock & Pop Preis 2004” in the category folk rock. In 2006 Sonja was honoured as the best German folk rock singer and the following year Sonic Season played at the the legendary Montreux Jazz Festival.

Their skills as a live band has also led to the role as the support act for many celebrated artists between 2002 and 2012, among them Sinead O’Connor, Toto, Ten Years After, Nazareth, Saga, The Levellers to name a few.

Andreas Lundgren

Andreas Lundgren hit the album market as a singer and songwriter in the band Geary, in 1998 as they released the album “Green Loafers & Husky Freaks”. After a short and intense international career the band broke up and Andreas continued as a solo artist.
The solo album “Bad Buddha” was released in 2007 and in 2012 he released the album “Lovely Dream”.

“The music has been written during my road trips. Years of travelling through shady environments with the contrast from the atmosphere from Buddhist temples. The music is my way of communicating with the world, a multi-dimensional way where my own will sometimes lags behind.”

Andreas Lundgren is the lead singer on the song “Come Together” on the third single from Bus Stop Dreams.
