Groove Coverage Biography
Review The Artist (10)
In 1976, strictly speaking at 07th November a little boy came into this world: NOVUS – a little star was borne.
Even from earliest childhood he showed big interest in music and therefore he owned his first record-player already at the age of eight, though then it was all about Elvis Presley and Madonna.
Inspired by various events in Munich he started – at his parents’ annoyance – his DJ-career in his parental home in Rottenburg in Lower Bavaria in 1995.
Known under his pseudonym “Novus” (lat. mean. “New”) he rapidly casted a spelll on the regional crowds with his “Hands-up-Party Trance”.
All his friends and lots of fans joined his sets and numerous bookings far beyound the borders of his home state Bavaria were following.
In 1996, while those booking- and resident activites, he got to know Axel Konrad at one of his gigs in his homebase at that time.
By a very short time they both knew that they are on the same wavelength – in music matters as well as interpersonal – and a friendship far beyond the “Dj-thing” developed. (Original quotation from A.K. 1996: “As a townie I thought you can make a killing here at the country because you own the newest and most fabulous vinyls, but you had to put away one after the other record again because the resident dj is playing exactly your set!”)
In cooperation with Suprime Music Ingolstadt the project “Groove Coverage” was founded overnight by Markus and Axel in Summer 2001.
Supported by his both producers Axel Konrad and Ole Wierk even the debut single entered the Top 20 of the Dance/Clubcharts.
Probably “Are u ready” should have been a sign at that time, because with the second track the final, enormous breakthrough succeeded like no one dared to imagine before.
The cover version of Mike Oldfields superhit “Moonlight Shadow” was number 3 of Media Control Charts and blessed DJ Novus – in the meantime resident in Landshut - the with a 14-days-residence in the Top 20 of the German Single-selling Charts.
Golden record for more than 250,000 sold sound storage media; nomination for an “Echo 2003”, “Mc Mega Music Award 2003” – a dream came true!
Since then Groove Coverage are now touring as Live-act as well as Dj-Act through all parts of Europe and are fireing their audience.
Simoultaneous with the third single, which should also be the fastet own-composed No. 1 of the German DJ Playlist (“God is a Girl”, Meda Control: #8) GC published their first album called “Cover Girl” by the end of 2002. By meeting up with Lou Bega they got a songwriter, who everyone should still remember of well because of his “Mambo No. 5”.
Without taking a long break GC worked on completion of the fourth single by using again the very expressive and emotional vocals of Verena and Mell, who also contributed the vocals for the whole GC album.
“The End” (Media Control Charts Place 13) means not the end but was already the beginning of the second album.
Expected date of publication: Winter 2003-03-13
“God is a girl – wherever YOU are!!!”””

Once upon a time, many years ago, explicitly said on 14 May 1984, a little girl called Verena got loosed to the world in her hometown Neuburg.
Already at the age of six she caused her parents headache because of her initial ear-splitting plunking at her first piano.
Result: Four years later she started her 8-years lasting career at a boarding-school specializing in teaching art and music.
But that little girl did not want to be a good girl and spend her time on learning. Instead of it she began taking care of her music and started realizing her dream: To be on stage, singing and being near to all persons who share her big love.....
Arduous years of practising and bothering singing-lessons, piano-lessons and learning of notes finally caused more parential headache....
Some years she had to stand before she could make her first experiences on stage with a cover-band.
Actually the little girl should have been happy then, but she was insatiable of this feeling in her heart caused by the music. And while she was trying to get her school-leaving qualification and getting a little adulthood she was waiting for her big chance... 4 long years were to pass by, before she had her big break-through.
One evening after one of her appearances she met two unknown guys who should make her dreams come true.
Since then she is singing in her own aparment (to her parents happiness), is living a very exciting life and trys to make people happy and give them hope with her music and her great ambition..... --- Love you more than I can say ---....
P.S. Now quite seriously: Up to now I had a very fabulous life and there wasn’t a situation when my love for music was not helpful to me.
Now I want to thank all the people who supported me anyhow and anytime and these are in the front line my parents!!! But our great success is owing to you, our fans, and therefore our biggest thanks to all of you!!!

THIS is music | Reviewer: Swati Nair | 7/5/08
I've never felt like listening to a song 25 times in a row before. Each song of yours is simply amazing. But my clear favourite is God is a Girl. I want to thank you for inspiring me with your music and someday I aspire to sing like you do. And now I'll say something that everybody says but I know you'll never get tired of hearing it - You are the best band ever and you are my absolute favourite. Thank you for your voice and music.
