Tovah’s musical history began at the end of the ’70s in the beautiful Black Forest.
At the tender age of six, she had already chosen to learn classical piano and started writing her own songs.
“My earliest memory of music that made a lasting impression is of Kate Bush’s album ‘Wuthering Heights’. The combination of tone and music was unique. It immediately conjured up pictures in my mind’s eye. Entire landscapes, colours and shapes opened up in front of me, and I knew that I had to make music myself”.
She actively experimented with all types of popular music, from rock and punk to jazz and dance. Having moved to Berlin, she began working with various musicians, composing the song ‘Angel’ in 1993 for Olympia 2000, which she then performed at the Brandenburg Gate in front of 200,000 people. Working with music and production legend, Edward ‘Edo’ Zanki, she became acquainted with the mechanics of the professional music business, and recorded an unplugged album which she has so far declined to release. Parallel to this, she also completed a degree course in Design. The stage name of ‘Tovah’, which is the female form of ‘God’ in Hebrew, was chosen not least because of its typographical advantages: “It’s a good name in design terms”, she says. This period was followed by music projects in Berlin and Istanbul, countless compositions of her own and her first TV productions. In recent years Tovah has lived and worked in London and recently started commuting again between Berlin and the British capital.
