Love and Devotion

Love and Devotion is a duo consisting of Pia Hillgard and Maria Frennberg who has known each others for more than 12 years now, and who has sung together for 10 years. They met at school when they both lived in the town of Kungsbacka at the Swedish West Coast. Together they played theatre and sang playback at discoteques. Then Pia moved south to Varberg and Maria to Göteborg. When Pia came to Varberg she joined a band called Surprise, who sang covers.

In 1995 the girls got together again and made an ABBA-show called Waterloo together with a gang of Varberg musicians. The show became a success, and Håkan Lundberg and Jonas Blees, two musical writers and producers looking for a singer to perform their music discovered Pia and Maria. Håkan and Jonas were supposed to select one of the girls, but could not decide which one so they decided both. Then they started to make songs especially for Pia and Maria. Love and Devotion was born.

Their first single was Can't get enough. It became a minor hit in the spring of '97, and in the autumn the same year the next track was released. Lovin' and devotion became a chartclimber. In late 1997 their debut-album was finished. It's called So Good and is filled with full of catchy tunes for summerparties as well as some ballads for evenings when the autumn-leaves falls. That album has sold gold in Australia, Denmark and South Africa so far.

During the summer of '98 Love and Devotion toured Sweden and Denmark. They were also on their way to conquer Asia, but the financial crisis came in their way.
-No one dares to release anything in Asia right now said Pia in an interwiev in the summer of '98.

The girls has a way of singing which is quite similar to the girls of ABBA, but the sound is more "90:ish", and they have also been compared to the Spice Girls.

Pia and Maria say they share a similar idealism, same musical taste (Toto, E-Type, Big Money), and they claim to never have had a single fight.
