Biography

Verena von Strenge (born 27 July 1975, Munich, Germany) is a German singer and dancer best known for being the lead singer for the German happy hardcore dance group Dune from 1996–1997 and 1999–2000.

Von Strenge loved dance since she was very young. At the age of five, she was taught classical dance by her grandmother who was a former ballerina. However, von Strenge had to give up her plans of being a professional dancer due to knee problems.

Music career

Von Strenge initially started her music career with the German happy hardcore dance group Dune as a dancer and singer during live performances. At the time (1995), Dune consisted of Oliver Froning, Jens Oettrich and Bernd Burhoff but in 1996, a new lineup was created for the release of their second album, Expedicion, von Strenge became the group's lead vocalist.

After recording three albums with Dune (Expedicion, Live! and Forever), von Strenge left the group in 1997 to pursue a career as a solo singer. She released three singles: Finally Alone, Heartbeat and Part of Your World.

In 1999, von Strenge rejoined Dune and at the end of the year the single Dark Side of the Moon was released. Von Strenge also recorded other tracks for Dune, Heaven, Back to the Future, Here I Am and Space Invaders. The single release of Heaven was stopped due to a court injunction, but the other tracks were eventually released on Dune's greatest hits album, History.

In 2002, von Strenge restarted her solo career, but the single was never released.

In 2005, von Strenge worked as an assistant for German music label 313 Music.

In 2007, von Strenge was the lead vocalist for the music project called Moon Dust; the single released was called Angels, a cover version of the song written and sung by Robbie Williams.

Personal life

In 2009, von Strenge successfully finished her Diploma in Psychology and Ergonomics at the Technical University of Berlin. In 2012, von Strenge married and now goes by the name Verena Adam von Strenge. Von Strenge currently lives and works in Berlin as Vice President of People and Culture at LIQID Asset Management GmbH.
