WHY AMNESIA is a female fronted Rock Export straight from the heart of Germany. Influenced by international acts like Skunk Anansie, Slash and Die Happy, Shirley Golightly (vocals), Theus Caster (lead guitar), Sanni Wea (rhythm guitar), Marv Kuschke (bass guitar) and Rob Ster (drums) are much more than just a stylistic mashup of their idols.
The current album GODIVA, the second studio album, is available in all established online shops and offers a wide musical range from straight rocksongs and mid-tempo tracks to pas- sionate and sensitive ballads. In addition to a powerful live appearance, WHY AMNESIA strike a thoughtful note with their lyrics and position themselves clearly against war, violence and racism.
On stage downtime is no option. They don’t care if it is a small pub, a club or a big festival: WHY AMNESIA raise the roof with their energetic show - full of all-consuming passion.
And as they love to be on stage, they performed about 50 shows in Germany over the past three years – upward trend. Also they started working on songs for album no. 3.
