Biography

Remember David Bowie? Remember his 'Space Oddity'? I am proud to be released in the same year - not from jail, from my mother's womb.
I am Erki Põlme, and I’ve been doing this 'music thing' since the early 80’s.
-
1983- Made my first recordings with a stereo tape recorder.
1986- Joined a heavy metal band (bass and lead vocal).
1988- The day “the music died”- the military came calling, Soviet style.
1990- Military time was up, I got out.
1995- Music and the mic grabbed hold of me again; but in years I found out- performing wasn't for me.
2004- A new decade, a new country - Luxembourg to be exact - my first real opportunity to focus on songwriting and get my songs "out of the house". That is what I did and have been doing ever since.
