Fancy Biography

Famous producer, author and pop singer.

Fancy graduated from high school specialized in humanities, at the same time being at Capuchin monastery. Fancy was fond of music. In particular, he was interested in rock 'n' roll, which prompted him to join band THE MOUNTAIN SHADOWS, which has already gained success with the local audience.

Tess (real singer name) started composing while playing the guitar. Fancy got acquainted with the music publishing industry and later became a member of the GEMA (German Society for musical performing and mechanical reproduction rights).

The artist started to produce other musicians at the same time developing his solo career and recording songs in German. One of the most important meetings was the one with a legendary musician Jimmy Hendrix in 1967 in Munich. Dave Sidle, who recorded Jimmy Hendrix’s songs in studio, arrived to Munich to record Tess’s songs at Studios studio. Together they recorded songs «Full Moon Night» and «Down On The Corner».

In spring of 1983, Tess passed his tune to Todd Kennedy, who immediately found its proper application – that’s how the song “Slice me nice” was born.
