She became involved in the city's close knit music scene and inevitably the two began to work together. Via Paul came Martin Lynch and Paul Maguire (former drummer with Liverpool faves The Stairs) - whilst Jonas Theis, a classically trained pianist, completed the line-up having originally known Heidrun at LIPA where he too was studying. On the strength of a three song demo, Gloss were signed to Nude Records.
