|WILDEVE is the synonym for
original and timeless songs. Lead singer and songwriter Lili is also
multi-instrumentalist (electric and acoustic guitars, keyboards, piano,
violin). The strength of the band is the excellent songwriting and the
arrangement of their songs. This power sound of WILDEVE's music –
influenced by many genres such as rock, folk and alternative – grabs
the listener. This stuff is far away from boring mainstream,
nevertheless it's melodious, soft, hard.
The music is characterised by
atmospheric density, the chorus lines never get out of your ears. Lead
singer Lili got an impressive versatile voice. But WILDEVE can also be
seen on stage since 1996 and convince the audience – just see the live
WILDEVE played with The Coalminers' Beat, Yeti Girls, Die
Happy, Kinderzimmer Productions, Dead Poets, Jule Neigel Band, Werner
Danneman, etc. The band played at festivals with headliners such as
H-Blockx, Farmer Boys or Madonna HipHop Massaker.
