About Martelle

It was with hard-rocking riffs, intelligent arrangements, and fresh, innovative solos that Andreas Schmid-Martelle (born 1961 in Ludwigshafen), as guitarist of the Jule Neigel Band first gained attention of Rock fans. From 1987 to 2000 Martelle has also functioned as co-author, arranger and producer. The band has sold over 2 million discs.

Today, Martelle's main activities are composing and producing. He writes songs for other artists as well as for publishers like Popvirus (instrumental music for TV stations). From time to time, there's a new Martelle album to be released.
