In 2007 they decided to form a band – or rather a duo – Anneli Rydahl and Nikolaus von Knorring combined makes Enchanted Duo, where soft pop meets light rock, lyrical meets critical and piano meets guitar. To symbolize the forming of the duo they later that year released Divine Collection. ED’s live program containing their own music or mixed with covers, acoustically performed by the two of them or supported by orchestra or backing tracks, suitable for anything from a café gig to a grand show.
Before 2007 Anneli and Nikolaus had been supporting each other in various solo projects, but performing together.
Melodies and lyrics have been important to Anneli ever since childhood. She didn’t grow up in a musical family and therefore music was often hard to find. In 2004 Anneli released her first album “Waterlilies” on her own. Nikolaus and Anneli produced it together ‘in the kitchen’ and it has led them on paths they never knew they’d walk…
Nikolaus first played in several rock and metal bands. When he later on picked up the acoustic guitar to write and produce songs the sound altered. Along with his vocals that acording to the metal genre had been considered as soft, he defined his music as light rock. The new sound he’d found led to the release of the Boiler Man EP in 2006 that was produced together with Anneli.
During 2011 Enchanted Duo ran the project “1 låt i månaden” where they released one new song every month.
