Jeanette Hubert was born in Karlsruhe in 1979 and raised in Berlin. Her musical career gets off to an early start at the tender age of eleven. Without even knowing how to play an instrument, she begins writing her first songs and performing them in public whenever the opportunity presents itself. At fifteen, she founds the duo Ginger Nuts, taking on the twin duties of singer and guitarist. The move turns into a formidable business card: In 1998, former Timbuk3-frontman Pat Macdonald ask her to contribute backing vocals to his third album and to accompany him on some of his German gigs.
In 2002, Ginger Nuts disband. For Hubert, however, the end of the band marks a new beginning, as she delves into production-technology, allowing her to record her songs by herself. Two years later, she's back on stage again, performing, among others, as the opening act to David Poe and setting up a duo with drummer Catrien Stremme. Together with Stremme, she secures first prize at a talent award organised by the city of Berlin, which allows them to record some of their songs. Unfortunately, the duo breaks up shortly afterwards and before having released the material. And yet, Hubert more than compensates for the disappointment by finishing second at the European finale of the "Emergenza Acoustic Showcase 2006".
