Jens Kreuzer Jens was born in Freiburg, Germany,
on New Year's Eve, 1964. An only child, he still doesn't like to
share his food but is otherwise quite affable…
He began composing at the age of 12. "While the other boys played
with toy cars, I was playing at inventing songs. Not much has changed!"
He formed his first rock band in 1979, playing exclusively original
material. His primary influence was always the Beatles, although
he was moved by numerous other artists and musical directions.
After dropping out of his final year at school, Jens spent his time
writing poetry and short stories, and churning out a new song almost
every day. But following his first marriage in 1986 and the subsequent
birth of his son, he looked for a "proper job" to pay the bills.
This didn't stop him from pursuing his passion - music. After almost
a decade's worth of prolific writing, performing and record company
refusals, he formed The Pleasure with Ralf and Volker. "With these
two, music suddenly took on a new dimension for me. We're a perfect
team, open for every experiment and always good for a laugh, but
with the same creative compulsion and discipline."
Jens is now happily married with his third wife, Sybille.
