++Heliodor, derived from the Greek “gift of the sun” – a lemon-yellow gemstone++

Welcome to HELIODOR - a pop/folktronica concept album about love and all its various facets: romantic, dangerous, fragile, rebellious, utopian, twisted, universal and eternal. The love for each other and the love within us. 

In 2014, I boarded a six bunk carriage on a rattling night train with nothing but a backpack and my demo tapes. The destination was Paris. It would be the first of many times that I travelled from my hometown of Hamburg to Paris to meet Ken Stringfellow (The Posies, R.E.M., Big Star), power pop musician and producer. Ken and I worked on HELIODOR over the course of two years. It was a journey full of highs and lows, as exhilarating as only real life adventures can be. HELIODOR was recorded in the following cities: Paris (FR), Tours (FR), Hamburg (DE), Rotterdam (NL), Medford (MA, USA), Hannover (DE) and Cologne (DE). 

The album title appeared to me in my dreams. This album, which so many people believed in and worked on, now really seems like a manifestation of the sun’s gift to me. It is with gratitude that I think back to the electrifying days and sleep-deprived nights. I would wholeheartedly like to thank all the people who have lent me their creativity, support, inspiration and love to help create my first album the way you are experiencing it now. 

I am excited that you found Heliodor. Or maybe it found you? Let me accompany you on this journey. I hope you will enjoy diving into and exploring it. 

Love knows and conquers all, 

Mimi Schell

Mimi Schell solo beim 12. Ahrensburger Balkonkonzert

Balkon der Stadtbücherei Ahrensburg am Wochenmarkt, Manfred-Samusch-Straße 3, Ahrensburg

Um 10.00 Uhr morgens singe ich für Euch vom Balkon! Dass ich das nochmal schreiben darf! Anlass ist das mittlerweile 12. Balkonkonzert, eine wunderbare Idee der Stadt Ahrensburg, um auch in unseren Kultur-Veranstaltungslosen Zeiten Musik und damit etwas Wärme zu den Ahrensburgern und Gästen der schönen Schleswig-Holsteiner Stadt zu bringen. Eine Stunde lang bringe ich Euch ein Best Of Mimi und dazu ein paar handverlesene Cover Songs aus 3 Metern Höhe! Somit sind die Hygiene- und Abstandsbedingungen bestens eingehalten und ich darf den Besuchern des Wochenmarktes schöne Songs bringen. Ganz kostenlos. Nun brauchen wir nur noch auf sonnigen Himmel hoffen! <3
