Barbara Duchow is a professional songwriter and singer with a mezzo-soprano voice type. In her music performances she sings in various languages such as English, German and French. She sings and produces music in the electro pop / rock genres. She also has experience with the heavy metal. Since 2014 she is performing under her artist name “Lunattack” with which she publishes her own songs and collaborates with other artists.
“Lunattack” delivers a touching insight into a life story that defies pre-assembled patterns in search of breaking free of an inconvenient lineage. In this powerful electro-pop-rock experience, Duchow unfolds stories of alienation and blindness, displacement and pain, revenge and forgiveness, resurrection from darkness and the surprising brightness of disappointment.
Since 2014 she has worked together with the guitarist, singer and songwriter Lone Kent (Toulouse) in the music composition of her first songs. 2015 she started to work with the Venezuelan visual artist Arnaldo González to create the Lunattack’s visual art presence. Bit by bit incredible musicians, producers and performers have given their creativity and support to each live performances and wherever she goes she invites guest artists to join her. This dynamic has made Lunattack be enriched by a kind of wonderful creative hybrid. 2017 she has released her debut album “Pont Neuf” with Pussy Empire Recording in Hamburg.
For Barbara Duchow, Hamburg native and creator of Lunattack, this has meant a long journey of escape and searching for her own compass. Her exploration is heavily influenced by the invisible and lasting weight passed on to german grandchildren of the Second World War. She allows helplessness, anger and disappointment to sweep comfortably through her stories, as the moments of joy and love take on power and depth.
