Mountaineer started out life as the project of German singer/songwriter and Hamburg-based Henning Wandhoff. His debut album “Sunny Day” saw a limited release but the restrictions of solo recording didn’t provide the creativity he desired and he was soon looking for other musicians to collaborate with.
A few years and a number of band member changes later he found his perfect writing and recording partner, Frank Mollena. They are both multi-instrumentalists with Henning playing acoustic guitar, voice, drums, congas and percussion on “The Real McQueen” and Frank playing bass, keyboards, electric guitar and programming the drum machines. Their recording line up was completed by Alexander Rischer and they set out to rejuvenate their collective love of the classic LPs from the late 60s and 70s.
