German pop singer Sascha Röntgen-Schmitz, known to the public as Sasha and Dick Brave, was born in Soest on January 5, 1972. He achieved local fame as a teenager with his first bands and was hired as a backing singer for rapper Young Deenay due to his special voice. He achieved his first major chart successes as a feature guest on the songs "Walk On By" (1997) and "Wannabe Your Lover" (1998). After two unsuccessful solo singles, he made it into the German Top 20 for the first time in 1998 with "I'm Still Waiting" (feat. Young Deenay). His final breakthrough as an independent artist came with the follow-up single "If You Believe", which reached the Top 5 in Germany, Austria and Switzerland and was awarded platinum and gold records. Shortly afterwards, his debut album Dedicated to... was released , which contained two more top 10 hits, "We Can Leave the World" and "I Feel Lonely" (both 1999). Sasha's triumphal march continued with the album ... You (2000) and the singles "Let Me Be the One" and "Chemical Reaction". in 2001, he followed this up with his third album Surfin' on a Backbeat and confirmed the hype. The most successful single was "This Is My Time" (2002). He landed hit after hit, won two Echos, was named Best Artist three times in a row at the 1 Live Krone between 2000 and 2002 and seemed to have played the pop game. So in 2002 he started a new project: Dick Brave and the Backbeats. The band released reinterpretations of well-known hits in rockabilly guise and reached number 1 in the German charts with their debut album Dick This! (2003). Since then, Sasha has been characterized by constant, successful releases and, thanks to his authentic and likeable manner, has become an integral part of the German-speaking pop circus. in 2018, he released his ninth studio album Schlüsselkind, on which he worked entirely with German lyrics for the first time. In his home country, the album reached number 4 on the bestseller list.
