Their ability to write strong and catchy songs was noticed early on by several radiostations, who began playing the first demos from Line and Tommi in 2003. The big break came when Hookah won the prestigious talent contest Starfighters in 2004. The contest is organized by the second largest Danish festival, Skanderborg Festivalen and among the judges were people from both national radio, national music television and the biggest monthly music magazine. In August 2005 Hookah released their first album: HOOKED ON HOOKAH.
From the album the two first singles HIGH ON YOU and DISTANCE BETWEEN US was heavily rotated from national radio P3 and several local stations. The accompanying videoes gave Hookah access to several television shows. Heavy remixes of the single HIGH ON YOU made their way to Top 30 on the DJ-chart and during spring 2005, Hookah played close to 20 gigs in clubs around Denmark. The tour ended with an impressive performance on the Skanderborg Festival in August 2005, where the duo was enlarged with drums, guitar and backing singers. HIGH ON YOU was among the ten most downloaded songs from the Payload webshop in 2005. 2.)
