Titre: Angel Hard (Andy Jonas)

Après des débuts plus que prometteurs, seconde voix sur l'album "seven" de Sandra, puis le chanteur du tube d'Enigma en 1993 "Return to innocence" et après avoir été produit par Jens Gad et M. Cretu pour son album "Welcome to the soul asylum" en 1993, Angel (Andy Jonas en fait) a disparu!

C'est vrai que son nom d'artiste : Angel, Angel X, Angel Hard d'un ridicule à  faire mourir de rire n'a sans doute pas aidé sa carrière. Ni le côté "soupe variètoche" de son album, ni la pochette risible sur laquelle on voyait sa bite! (si, si, regardez bien!)

Mais bon! C'est tout de même une des plus belles voix masculine que nous ayons en variété internationale !

Auteur, compositeur aussi, il me semble avoir d'ailleurs aperçu son nom sur un autre album de Sandra :"The wheel of time" pour le titre "I close my eyes".

Il parait qu'il chante en allemand, sa langue d'origine à ce que je pense, dans un groupe obscur composé de quatre personnages tout aussi obscurs...

Vous avez des infos?

Je ne me suis pas penché sur sa carrière mais je me souvient qu'il a une bien belle voix.
Sinon voilà ce que j'ai trouvé sur le site sandranet.com :
"He performed with his new band "tagTräumer" on March 2nd 2001 with the song "Traumen und Hoffen" on "Countdown Grand Prix Eurovision 2001". The selection for the German entry for this years eurovision songcontest. The lyrics of the song wrote Andy together with Susanne Kemmler. Although the song didn't end up as the winning song, the magnificent performing showed what a brilliant voice Andy has."
Je suis pas fortiche en traduction mais on comprend l'essentiel.  ;D

Andy Jonas (ANGEL X) is a German singer / songwriter and music producer. He became known as the singer of the hit "Return To Innocence" by the project Enigma, produced by the German-Romanian music producer Michael Cretu.

Angel started making music as a young boy. At the age of six he started composing his own songs and making recordings with drums. He also performed and presented these songs at school. At the age of 15 he worked as a DJ in many Munich clubs and a little later as a studio singer in well-known Munich recording studios. At about 18 he started making professional recordings as a solo singer
One of these recordings heard Frank Petersen among others the creator of the project "The Gregorians". This was already in 1988.
Shortly after that Michael Cretu and Angel met in Munich / Germany and were introduced by Frank Petersen who discovered Angel. Soon after, Angel was offered an exclusive contract with Mambo Musik.
The result of the ensuing collaboration was the album "Angel X" - titled "Welcome To The Soul Asylum" on , which was featured in the German TOP 100 and released worldwide as early as 1995 (Sony Music).
There was also an extensive collaboration for Sandra, e.g. he sang the male vocal parts for some songs of the world-famous singer and wrote and texted for her the international chart hit "I close my eyes"
In 1996, the artist recorded a CD under his then new name Andy Jonas entitled "Summer in Your Heart" - a song he wrote together with Klaus Hirschburger (Hubert Kah)
In 2001 and 2003 Andy Jonas (Angel X) performed with his new band Tagträumer with the songs "Träumen und Hoffen" (2001) and Living in a perfect world" (2003). So he took part in the Grand-Prix on (ESC) twice. In the meantime there are three German-language albums of the singer.

From 1997 onwards, Andy Jonas worked increasingly as a producer and, together with his then musical partner Julian Feifel, produced, among others, the hit "Round 'n' Round (It Goes)" by German artist Gil Ofarim, for which Andy also contributed music and lyrics. The title achieved a total of ten gold records, two platinum records and two double platinum records worldwide.

The follow-up hit "Talk to You" was also composed by Andy Jonas together with Gil Ofarim, and Andy co-wrote the lyrics with Leslie Mandoki. In total, Angel contributed six tracks to Gil Ofarim's debut album "Here I Am". In addition, ANGEL X wrote and produced songs for German Grand Prix winner Nicole as well as Marienhof main actress Judith Hildebrandt.

With the successful project "Original Enigma Voices", to which Angel X was also invited, numerous concerts have been performed in the USA (Chicago), Israel, Poland, Latvia, Hungary and other countries. (www. originalenigmavoices. com)

Angel's new album (Enigmatic LOVE & DEVOTION) was produced in Sweden. For the production he could win the ingenious cult - producer Pontus Hagberg (Evan), with whom he also wrote all the songs together with other Swedish top songwriters.

Un garçon très accessible et très sympa. Il répond aux messages qu'on lui laisse. Il a véritablement une belle voix. Je pense me commander son cd prochainement même si la reprise de "return to innocence" ne me plaît pas des masses...

Effectivement, surtout que je trouve qu'il chante moins bien que sur la version originale.
