Luisa Fernandez - Lay Love On You
Luisa Fernandez grew up in Galicia, Spain, and discovered her passion for singing early. She is one of nine brothers and sisters and at every family event she was lifted up onto the table and she sang and danced-ending up entertaining the whole party. Her talent was officially discovered in a contest at the age of 15. A deal with Warner Brothers and her first single hits in the disco era in Europe followed. After meeting her future husband, they formed the duo "Luisa Fernandez And Peter Kent" and had several European pop hits in Spanish, amongst them Solo Por Ti, that can be heard on European radio stations even today. Shortly after they moved to the island of Ibiza, Spain, where Luisa met Jens Gad. Their creative collaboration started several years later when Jens' own studio on Ibiza was finished. Jens describes, "We started using Luisa's Spanish poems and stories and made theme-songs out of them. We wanted to avoid pop vocal-elements and instead felt we were on a journey to discover archaic/ethnic depths in Luisa's voice that she hadn't used before." From this collaboration was born Achillea's latest new age music meets electronica creation, Amadas Estrellas with Luisa's vocals and Jens' music.
