Hello, and many thanks for your interest.
I was born in Munich, Germany, and my parents originate from Turkey.
I first started to make music with my first self-built "electric
guitar" at the age of 14.
I set up my first band at 16 as a bassist. After being in several
other bands and playing in clubs in and around Munich for 6 years,
I met Herman Frank of ACCEPT / VICTORY / PANZER, who asked me to
join his new band called MOON'DOC.
I quit my job and moved to Hanover in 1995.
My work with him gave me my first real taste of being a professional
After two recordings, singer Chris Bay decided to start his own band
FREEDOM CALL with Daniel Zimmermann of GAMMA RAY on the drums, it
The first FREEDOM CALL line-up consisted of myself, Chris Bay, Daniel
Zimmermann and Sascha Gerstner (now in HELLOWEEN).
FREEDOM CALL toured Europe many times with bands such as SAXON, ANGRA,
EDGUY, HAMMERFALL, BLIND GUARDIAN and appeared at countless festivals,

I signed a worldwide record deal for POWERWORLD with AOR/Heaven in
2008 for the first album.

several albums and carried out a wide
range of other jobs in the
studio. I played on many albums for other artists and recorded, mixed
and engineered many recordings in my Edentone-studio
in Southern Germany.
In 2009, it was a friday afternoon, I got a phonecall from another
record company from Germany. It was SPV/Steamhammer. In the end I
signed a new worldwide record-deal for POWERWORLD for the next albums.

died in that year and I had to put everything on ice.
POWERWORLD released a third album called "Cybersteria" in
2013 on SPV/Steamhammer with Michael Bormann on vocals.
After helping out many bands in my area,
playing tours and carrying out
jobs I re-joined my old band FREEDOM CALL in 2013.
