THE LUMINEERS

In recent years, more and more bands have come together that draw from a rich musical tradition, and at the same time want to explore uncharted territory on the sound map. The Lumineers, founded in 2002, are definitely one of those explorers yet also drawing from a great tradition. There is a reason that their single "Hey Ho" from the self-titled debut album reached gold in no time. A sign for the success of the American trio from Denver, Colorado, but also a clear indicator of their musical qualities is the way they use and mix acoustic Folk, classic Pop and alternative Rock into their specific sound that moves more than just the heart.

ED SHEERAN

The red-haired young man with the impish grin and British demeanor has been publishing records since he was 14 years old. In his record-breaking year in 2009, he played incredible 312 concerts. Obviously, Sheeran was awarded Brit Awards in two major categories: Best British Breakthrough Act and Best Male Solo Artist in February. His way led him from the streets to the very top in only a few years at his young age. He went straight to the top without compromises, but always accompanied by terrific music, great lyrics and a friendly wink: That's what makes Ed Sheeran Ed Sheeran.

SIMPLE MINDS

The Simple Minds are considered as one of the best live bands in the world and have probably played more Rock anthems than any other group in their 35-year history. The Simple Minds are definitely back, alive and kicking and are ready to play only pure thundering Scottish Rock from their last three decades years.

FRANK TURNER

Frank Turner is known to have made a fabulous impression in his past from a hardcore shouter on to become an acoustic folk singer and then to a stadium rocker without fulfilling any cliché in any of these genres. Considering his background, he will definitely be able to cope with the fact that he was now also covered in the audition show "The Voice Of Germany".
