? 2010 l BACKYARD Demo CD (6 songs) recorded @ Holtz Studios (Tuntange, Luxembourg)

? 2011 BACK IN MY LIFE EP/CD (3 songs), CD-BY02 recorded at Holtz Studios, (Tuntange, Luxembourg) and mastered at Hofa, (Karlsdorf, Germany)
The title track 'Back in my life' has airplay on thre major radiostations in Luxembourg, including RTL, where it entered the daily rotation since July 2011.



In early 2008, Steve Colin (vocals) and Mike Richartz (drums) met Michel Blanc (guitars), Eric Schmit (keyboards) and Charel Baumann (Bass) to bring BACKYARD back on scene. The new line-up lead to a renewal of the concept of BACKYARD’s music. Common to all of BACKYARD’s songs is the melodic expression of Steve’s voice, supported by pushing guitar-riffs and flaming keyboard-sounds. The band’s aim is to put melody, dynamics and sound into one great exploding performance on stage.
Since 2008, many new songs were written and recorded and BACKYARD made a lot of appearances on Luxembourg’s scenes.
• Beside appearances, some highlights so far:
2009, winner of the Rock the South Band Contest
2010, finalist of the ZicMeUp-Tour 2010 (finale régionale St. Amand)
2011, winner with over 40% of the public votes of the DNR Food For Your Senses Band contest and, as a consequence, headliner on FFYS
2011, winner of Duel de Luxe on DNR with the song Back in my Life
2011, june 17th: BACKYARD releases their single Back in my Life on iTunes Europe.
2011, july-august: - Back in my life enters the RTL Hitmaschinn iTunes Charts at number 5 and climbs to 2nd place. Mid-august, Back in my life still figures in the top 20.

Now it is time to leave small Luxembourg behind, without forgetting our roots.
