The journey

blueVenus became the muse of Andrea de Boer in 1998, the name inspired when driving nearby Stonehenge in England and the song written in Paris while on a vacation to heal her heartbreak.

The debut blueVenus album began recording soon after the death of her father and the marriage to her partner and guitarist Devrim Eldelekli in 2002 with producers and Engineers L. Stu Young (Prince) and Iain McNally.
