Artist Biography

Luna Blanca, based in Bocholt, Germany, was founded at the beginning of the millennium by acoustic lead guitarist Richard Hecks.  The other mainstay of the group is pianist Helmut Graebe, who joined the group just before they recorded the first album, and now co-writes the music with Hecks.  Both on record and in concert they add other musicians as needed to create their sound with drums, percussion, bass, one or more acoustic rhythm guitars, organ, occasional vocalizing, etc.  On the last three albums, Hecks and Graebe have been joined by rhythm guitarist Bino Dola (a flamenco player much respected throughout Europe) and Clemens Paskert (who adds bass, percussion and additional keyboards).  Paskert, who runs Capitol Sound Studios where the CD was recorded, also serves as arranger and co-producer with Hecks.

Hecks was a classical guitarist until he heard Ottmar Liebert (a fellow German who moved to the United States) on the radio.  “That was the sound I had been searching for,” Hecks says.  “It was the alchemy of uniting beautiful melodies with the intensity of flamenco.  The romantic and melodious aspect that Ottmar introduced aroused my enthusiasm.”
