BIOGRAPHY

Nadine Beiler was born in Innsbruck on 16 May 1990. After attending primary and secondary school in her home town of Inzing, she received her “Abitur” certificate at a music gymnasium in Innsbruck. The 16-year old Tyrolean grew up with music and singing: “I come from a very musical family, and I had my first performances at the tender age of five during Christmas and family parties.”

Nadine’s first performance on a big stage came in 2006 at the ORF “Starmania” casting show, where a little girl with a great voice won against 2,500 candidates, and later went on to prevail over all other contesters during the finals in January 2007.

Following her victory at “Starmania” Nadine’s music career progressed at a rather slow pace. No wonder, she was only sixteen at the time! She had to go back to school first, where she successfully graduated from two years later. After her graduation, she began studying law at the University of Innsbruck.

Since you can’t suppress talent for too long, however, Nadine joined the competition for the Austrian preliminaries for the “Eurovision Song Contest” in autumn 2010 – what a brilliant comeback it was! On 25 February 2011, viewers once again crowned her victor at a major prime time show, where she sang “The Secret Is Love”, for which she also wrote the lyrics.

He began his career with the Hallucination Company and, following his time in the chaotic band Drahdiwaberl, he joined several important figures of the New Wave era in the 80s, such as Hansi Lang and Falco, with whom he worked for more than 20 years, first on the keyboards and later as a band leader and producer. (CD: “Verdammt, wir leben noch”, DVDs: “Falco Live Donauinsel” and “Falco Symphonic”).

Today Thomas Rabitsch is one of the most influential and sought-after music producers in Austria, he composes music for films, and he also contributed the tunes for Austria’s biggest TV shows (“HELDEN VON MORGEN”, “Starmania”, “Dancing Stars”).
