Life-work is a musical project founded by Dutch songwriter Han Epskamp, the name coming from songwriting being his life's work and also stating that the topics of the songs deal with life in general. When producer Tim Ellis asked him late 2009 if he could use some help on the production of his songs it resulted in the first recording, the ballad 'Wonder where you are' with soprano Karen Orchin. Han liked her voice so much that they recorded a second song: 'My heart', which was remixed by Pete Hammond and got to number 4 in the Euro-HiNRG Top 50 club chart in October 2010. Afterwards 'Wonder where you are' was also remixed by Pete Hammond in a dance version and got to number 2 in the Euro-HiNRG Top 50 club chart. Follow-up 'You won't see my tears' then was especially written for Karen's voice and became number 1 in the Euro-HiNRG Top 50 club chart. 'Lost in Time' and 'Woman of Secrets' were the next two singles
Karen Orchin: Coming from N Ireland and a family of singers, Karen made her debut aged 2 at Butlins when her performance of Zippidy Do Dah set her on a track that has taken her through singing in pubs and clubs, numerous musical theatre roles and into the world of opera. So far Karen has been lead vocalist on all Life-work songs.
Life-work is privileged to work with Pete Hammond, who remixed all 6 singles so far for this project. The 'Mixmaster' is an icon in the British pop industry. He has an impressive list of hit productions on his name, not only as a remixer and producer for Stock, Aitken & Waterman, but also as a sound engineer, writer and musician. After PWL he produced and mixed records for many artists including hits for "Take That", the at the time new Japanese band T.R.F. Pete has been credited on 140 UK hits singles (11 of which were No. 1 and 55 were TOP 10) and countless albums between 1978 and 1995. Since remixing
