Herman Dune
Herman Dune

Herman Düne, also known, since 2005, as Herman Dune (without the ü), is a Rock & Roll Duo.

The line-up for Herman Dune is now (as in 2011) 1/David-Ivar Herman Dune: Voice, Song-Writing and Guitars. David-Ivar is most of the time called Yaya Herman Dune or just Yaya. 2/Néman Herman Dune: Drums and some backing vocals. Néman is now known as Cosmic Néman

Herman Dune started their career internationally, thanks to UK DJ John Peel who played them a lot and invted them to something like 10 Peel Sessions.

Until 2006 they gained a cult status by touring across the world intensively and releasing a lot of music through independent, punk, DIY or Underground Record labels.

In 2006, the release of GIANT (Source etc./Virgin) coincides with the band becoming a duo, with André taking leave. Giant propels Herman Dune to a wider recognition. They soon record and release NEXT YEAR IN ZION.

In 2010, Herman Dune cut loose of all previous bonds to start their own Record Company STRANGE MOOSIC. They go record new material in Portland,Oregon with Adam Selzer and release their new songs in an album called STRANGE MOOSIC (Strange Moosic/G.U.M/City Slang/Fortuna Pop)

STRANGE MOOSIC is a new start for Herman Dune, and "Tell Me Something I Don't Know", the first single, announces change with a video featuring a Young runaway Yeti and actor John Hamm from Mad Men. Herman Dune will intensively tour through 2011 and 2012, with the most simple line-up, often just core duo Yaya and Cosmic Néman, but also with Bass Player Ben Pleng.
The Sam Chase
The Sam Chase
The Sam Chase has a voice like a Nun on the lam with a mouthful cigarettes and curse words in a lonely bar, drunkenly dancing next to a broken jukebox. His songs are scribbled, not written, on lipstick and sweat stained motel bedsheets because he likes the way the ink bleeds. His guitar runs on diesel and leaks like the morning after too much Whiskey. His is a show you'll probably want to tattoo on your body so everyone will know that you knew him before he was cool. He began to write music at the age of 14. He still has every scrap of paper he scribbled his terrible lyrics on and on occasion can even recall the infantile melodies and riffs that accompanied them.

In 2012, the world was gifted the release of his long awaited first studio album, THE SAM CHASE WILL LEAD US TO VICTORY. Its aim is to blow your mind. Its goal is world peace, where everyone wins, where victory is a basic human right. If all goes according to plan, The Sam Chase will lead you there.

THE SAM CHASE has had the honor to share the stage with some incredible acts such as: K.D. Lang and the Sis Boom Bang, Justin Townes Earle, Lucinda Williams, Poor Man's Whiskey, Herman Dune, The Brothers Comatose, and many more. He sees every stage, any raised surface, or any plot of land as a challenge to conquer it, and win the audience over. THE SAM CHASE is coming for the glory.
