Following the turn of the millennium's fondness for singer/songwriter traditions, Reamonn worked the crossroads of likable acoustic rock and familiar European orchestration. Named for Irish-born frontman Reamonn Garvey, the five-piece formed in late 1998 in Baden-Württemberg, Germany. After landing an early major-label deal, the band rushed to record their debut album, choosing Steve Lyon (the Cure, Nitzer Ebb, EMF) to steer its production. The combination of raw folk and glossy production proved successful: the first German single "Supergirl" made the Top Ten and the LP, 2000's Tuesday, went gold. Wisely, Reamonn worked the album despite the major-label blanket. They toured on both sides of its release with H.I.M., the Guano Apes, and Bon Jovi and went back to work on a follow-up shortly thereafter, even though they were unaware if their style of music would have a place in the world when they resurfaced. Dream No.7 was released in 2001 and further enhanced their popularity in Europe. Beautfuil Sky - their third studio album was released in 2003, but it was the single Tonight, Rovi
