The musical sensation of the last few years in Poland … Two stars from completely different constellations, whose surprising and curious artistic collaboration resulted in unexpected success. When their paths crossed in February 2002 they both had been acclaimed superstars in their genres, with well-established careers and imposing achievements. Their first “duo” album “Indecent Songs” ( recorded in London) became an overnight sensation racking up sales of over 100,000 copies and receiving many prestigious music awards. “Inside Story” their second offering (produced by Chris Eckman of the Walkabouts) released in 2005 was a “golden” follow up that confirmed their special position on the Polish market.
Anita Lipnicka (b. 1975 in Poland) started her career as a vocalist in one of the most successful bands of the 90s “ VARIUS MANX”. She wrote almost all the lyrics for two albums, which sold over a million copies in Poland. Several songs from that period became hymns for a generation.

She left for London, where in 1996 she started working on new songs for her first solo album with well known session musicians and the record producer Danny Schogger. The album, accurately titled “Anything Can Happen” was released in Poland in 1996 and sold over 400.000 copies. Over the next few years she toured extensively, recorded two new albums and . . . searched for a new musical direction. In 2002 she and John Porter recorded a ballad “For You” written for his album “Psychodelikatesy”. It was the first step towards an amazing turn in their careers.
When John Porter (b. 1950, Wales) started collaborating with Anita, he had already been a legend in his own right. John was instrumental in creating the Polish rock scene in the 70s as one of the founders of MAANAM, and later, at the turn of the decade, founder of PORTER BAND - the most seminal rock group at that time. Their debut album “Helicopters” became a cornerstone for Polish rock music. Like Anita, John left the band at the peak of its career and worked on numerous solo projects (12 albums). Then, in 2002, he invited Anita to record with him a ballad, “For You” and this marked the beginning of their songwriting partnership.
In 2008 Lipnicka / Porter released their 3th studio album "Goodbye" and decided to split ...
