The history of HARTMANN began in 2005 with the successful release of their debut album 'Out in the cold', many times chosen as 'album of the month', and with their follow up 'Home' released in 2007. After their support tour for THE HOOTERS where HARTMANN performed acoustic versions of their material for the first time the band decided to play two exclusive shows at Pegasus theater in Bensheim/Germany in late 2007. Supported by three female background singers as special guests both evenings were recorded for the live CD/DVD 'Handmade' released in 2008. It is uniting outstanding material like real 'handmade' versions of the first two studio albums and previously unreleased tracks.
'Handmade' has always been considered as one of the most impressive outputs of HARTMANN and this re-release now contains both CD and DVD as special limited deluxe edition. In addition, the digital version of the CD will also be released as “deluxe edition” – now containing audio versions of all songs.
Oliver Hartmann is also well known as being a member of the mega seller Avantasia and as frontman of the successful Pink Floyd Tribute Echoes with their latest release 'Barefoot To The Moon' (German charts No 20 in Oct 2015).
