Biography[edit]

Crown of Creation have been founded in 1985. For the band name Crown of Creation was the album "Crown of Creation" by Jefferson Airplane godfather.

The band had begun in Großmoor (municipality of Adelheidsdorf) and moved to Hannover in 1987. After numerous line-up changes and many recordings, the band went into the studio of Rick J. Jordan (Scooter) in 1993 with Nicole Sukar and picked up, with the help of the record producer Herman Frank (Victory), the debut CD "Real Life". Following the publication (1994), Olaf Oppermann was the band's guitarist.

In 1994 and 1995, the band was in the department of Seine-et-Marne, near Paris, on tour. 1998 there was the dissolution of the band. After 11 years of absence Crown of Creation found in 2009 together again, in the last line with the new singer Anne Crönert.

In 2010, the CD EP "Darkness in your Life" was produced and in conjunction with the Dance Factory from Lachendorf was developed a video production. From the 8th and 11 May 2010 ran over several weeks, a series with the story of the Crown of Creation in the "Wathlinger Bote" and the "Wathlinger Echo", in which were presented the facts and news from the past 25 years, year after year.

For Christmas 2010, gave the band their hometown of Hannover, the song "At Christmas Time".[3]

The children of the choir of the primary school of Adelheidsdorf were with the band in August 2011 in a studio in Hannover to sing the chorus of "Child's Eyes" and three German-language passages.[4] Crown of Creation contributed in 2012 a new and unreleased song to the charity compilation "Made in Ce(lle)" in favor of children's hospice work and even worked with the lead in the production and marketing of the sampler.

In 2013, the CD maxi "With the Rhythm in my Mind" has been released.[5] On this occasion, the video production company emovion has produced the video of the main title and of "Child’s Eyes".[6]
