Biography

Hoffmann & Hoffmann was a German singing duo. Günter and Michael were brothers. When still in school, they allready made music together. The Hoffmanns’ first success came in 1977 with the single “Himbeereis zum Frühstück”. They represented Germany in the Eurovision Song Contest 1983 with the song “Rücksicht” which proved to be the biggest hit of the Hoffmanns’ career, but did not translate into the lasting success the brothers had hoped for. Less than a year after their Eurovision appearance, Günter Hoffmann committed suicide, aged 32, by jumping from a hotel window in Rio de Janeiro on 15 March 1984.
Thereafter, Michael Hoffmann worked mainly as a producer and composer for artists including fellow Eurovision veterans Gitte Hænning, Wencke Myhre and Nicole. In 1987, he entered the German Eurovision heats as a solo singer with the song “Ich geb’ nicht auf”, which finished fifth. He has since gone on to become a producer of spiritual and meditative music.
