ABOUT

Target Eagle is the first notable band I formed, 20 years old, in 1986. Finding the right members introduced me to my longtime friend Andy Sachs (bass). In the 80s instrumental shred albums where the thing, so why not do one myself ?‘ I thought. Produced by my mentor, Wolfgang Roch, I released a solo demo to international praise in 1987. On MC, of all things… After an exciting phase writing songs with PETER WINTER for a BMG/Ariola pitch I formed Changes in 1991 with Peter ‚Zegge‘ Zechiel (bass, vocals) and Georg Schanze (drums). Changes started as a progressive power trio but became more accessible adding singer Michael ‚Watz‘ Waidelich in 1992. The line-up was completed by Willy Schmitz (bass) and Torsten Daul (drums). 1995 I was invited by bass player Norbert Dreikluft to a session that led to the formation of Three Mile Smile . Together with Ebo Rock (voc, gt) and Andreas Engels (drums) we were offering more a l t e r n a t i v e oriented rock. 1997 the collaboration with Klaus Schmuck started, first in Jerry Can , later in the hard rocking Ocean Bed , releasing several CDs worldwide. In 2002 I also re-started my solo recordings. HIGH ROAD EASY was founded in 2008. I was finally able to join forces with power house singer Jan Knopf. To this day HIGH ROAD EASY released 4 full length records. For more info please go to highroadeasy.com .

Sven Horlemann Rotenbüschle 25 76228 Karlsruhe, Germany  e: shore@mailbox.org
wonderful things come in tiny packages (CD, 2019) ‚Wonderful‘ is the 2nd album I teamed up with singer extraordinaire, Udo Maurer. I love is raspy, blues-rock voice, that elevates 6 songs way beyond the original versions I had. The rest of the album features some of the best instrumental rock songs I‘ve ever written. happy turns to blue (CD, 2016) First time working with singer Udo Maurer. We wrote a set of new songs especially for this album. It gathers several guest musicians most notably Magnus Brandell (drums), Lena Maurer (beautiful lead vocals on ‚I Can‘t See‘), Axel Gillhausen & Volker Schäfer (bass). A wonderful experience and an album I am very proud of. in.com.plete (CD, 2010) This album was done without the intention to release it. It was an experiment, fusing my classical influences (I am a musicologist) with rock music. Just for me, not following any trend or seeking any audience. I like it. sTanding tall (CD, 2013) ‚Standing Tall‘ was inspired by my work with vocalist Klaus Schmuck, with whom I collaborated for several years. Some of the songs we wrote are dear to my heart. Therefore I took them and the recorded vocal tracks from Klaus, and re-arranged, re-recorded them. Add some new songs to that et voilá, a full album was ready. NOW, THEN (EP1) (digital, 2021) The Covid downtime had me listen to previous released and unreleased song from the past 25 years. This selection are 6 songs I liked most, re-recording and re-mixing them. Lead vocals are by me and High Road Easy singer Jan Knopf. NOW, THEN (EP2) (digital, 2021) This is part 2 of me revisting songs from the past. This time featuring lead- & background vocals from Klaus Schmuck, former Starstruck, Jerry Can, Ocean Bed. As always drums on most songs are provided by Magnus Brandell. NOW, THEN (CD, 2022) The full album includes both EPs plus 6 (!) bonus tracks. Featuring lead- & background vocals from Klaus Schmuck (Starstruck, Jerry Can, Ocean Bed) and Jan Knopf (High Road Easy), plus the amazing Magnus Brandell on drums. Another Piece Of Me (EP) (digital, 2024) Thanks to the amazing feedback I got, I continue with a series of EPs consisting of 2 instrumental tracks and 2 songs. As usual, they are featuring singer Klaus Schmuck (Starstruck, Jerry Can, Ocean Bed), and the amazing Magnus Brandell on drums. WILD WORLD (EP) (digital, 2023) This EP features 2 songs with lead- & background vocals from Klaus Schmuck (Starstruck, Jerry Can, Ocean Bed). Plus 2 brand new instrumental rockers. Drums by the wonderful groovin‘ Magnus Brandell.

ABOUT

TARGET EAGLE is the first notable band I formed with my mentor Wolfgang Roch, back in 1986. In the 80‘s instrumental shred albums where the thing, so ‚why not do one myself?‘, I thought. Produced by Wolfgang, it was the first SVEN HORLEMANN release to be published in 1987 to international praise. Singer P ETER WINTER had interest by BMG / Ariola, and I was recommended to join. We worked on songs, in the end Peter ended up doing a pro demo using PINK CREAM 69 as his studio band. 1991 I continued to study musicology, and free of commercial aspects, formed the progressive rock trio CHANGES with Zegge Zechiel and Georg Schanze. We had fun, played great gigs, but ultimately everyone moved on. End of 1992 CHANGES consisted of superb singer Michael Waidelich, Willy Schmitz on bass and Torsten Daul on drums. This incarnation of CHANGES further improved my songs, taking the progressive ideas and manage to fuse them to melodic rock songs the average listeners can enjoy, too. 1995 I was asked to join a new band, which became THREE MILE SMILE. Led by singer Ebo Rock we were offering more alternative oriented rock. 1997 the collaboration with KLAUS SCHMUCK started, first supporting him in JERRY CAN , later also forming the hard rocking OCEAN BED . 2002 I was more and more interested in recording, mixing and producing. Therefore it made sence to restart my solo recordings. 2008 I joined forces with power house singer JAN KNOPF forming HIGH ROAD EASY . As of today we released 4 full length records, our latest in 2020.
Another Piece Of Me (EP)(digital, 2024) Singer Klaus Schmuck (Starstruck, Jerry Can, Ocean Bed) and the amazing Magnus Brandell on drums joined me for another EP.
