Andreas Martin was supported early on by his musical father. Martin became a rock musician as a teenager, and later made a name for himself as a composer and studio musician. His first single “If you cry” (1980) made some waves, but his breakthrough came with the tune “Amore mio”, a song that stormed the German radio and sales charts alike – and firmly established Martin in the “Schlager” genre. Andreas Martin also worked as a composer for many other artists such as Juliane Werding, Nino de Angelo, Wolfgang Petry, Brunner & Brunner, Roger Whittaker and Engelbert Humperdink. In 1990 he founded the duo “New Mixed Emotions”. After, Andreas Martin performed solo for many years. He ended his career in early 2020, but his songs are still a “must” at any German house party.
