Album Notes
I was born in Kumasi Ghana in 1975 and grew up in hamburg germany.

At the age of 3 I found out that making music and singing is the most joyful thing for me to do and I'm grateful for having parents that did support me in every way.

At the age of 15 I was introduced to music producers and we were able to sign an EP with Sony Music in 1993 "Meine Kleine Fee". That was no success.

My producers at that time and I decided to come up with Demos in english that I preferred to use as my Lyrics-writing language, but after we've cancelled the contract with Sony (they only wanted to keep a business relation with us if we continue to use German Lyrics, I got the opportunity to sign an exclusice artist deal with Warner-Chappell a daughter company to Warner-Music in 1996.

Well - I got depressed after a misslead and crashed 4 year marriage and no big activities within my deal to warner-chappell, being unable to write or perform music for 4 years (moving back to my parents house...).

After some good of therapy I was able to get back on my own feet and flat! YEAH!!

Didn't believe this to ever happen - but knew this time of suffering must be good for me for a reason. Anyway after about 3 month living my own flat words suddenly came to me (A song called "Our Soul" - on the album : No Revenge) I even asked god, my inner voice, the universal forces or what you wanna call an energy delivering voice, if I really should write all this down this time and received goes, leading to 16 Song Lyrics) I read some of the lyrics to my closest family even if I still didn't feel like talking, walking at all, but they liked them a lot and where very happy to have a chat with me in the first place;) Anyway - I knew I couldn't turn these into a book even if my aunty living in London recommended me to do so, but I only knew if it would be the last thing for me to do on earth, I will need to write songs around these words and play them whatever places, my legs would carry me to.

So I picked my old good e-guitar and began to compose 16 tracks.

I also knew I needed an semi-acoustic guitar (or just one of this kind) to perform the songs on streets and venues.

I was able to get one and keep performing these and many others songs since then. If you want to listen to this first Singer-Songwriter Album "No Revenge" from the year 2004 and the follow up Singer Songwriter Album: "Who Are You" from 2005 websearch them with something like OOD Album, O.O.D. - No Revenge or OOD Music No Revenge - Who Are .

Both were released the first time (no label) in 2004 and 2005 "No Revenge".
This album: Understanding the World is # 21 of other home-recorded albums. That "One-Man-Band Thang".

With the help of one of my cousing giving me an good old g4 and a music program, I was able to record my first home-rec album
