Captain Hollywood Project


Germany (1991 – present)

Captain Hollywood Project were a Germany-based Eurodance group, founded by former Twenty 4 Seven rapper Tony Dawson-Harrison along with producers Thorsten Adler, Michael Eisele and Thomas Keil in early 1991.

Dawson-Harrison left the Dutch group Twenty 4 Seven after a fallout with producer Ruud Van Rijen, just after the release of their debut album, ‘Street Moves’ in late 1990. He released a solo album, Do That Thang, soon after. The album sold poorly, however, with the European charts seemingly not ready for its hip-hop style.

It was followed by two singles, the title track ‘Do That Thang’, and ‘Shirley’.

In 1992 he met German producers Adler, Eisele and Keil, and they formed the Captain Hollywood Project, adding vocalist Nina to the group later that year.

The group issued two Eurodance-focused singles, ‘More and More’, and ‘Only With You’ in 1993. Both were huge hits in a number of European charts.

The debut album, ‘Love Is Not Sex’, sold 400,000 copies in Europe. It included ‘More and More’ and ‘Only With You’, plus the later singles ‘All I Want’ and ‘Impossible’, both released in early 1994.

In late May 1994, ‘Rhythm Of Life’ was sent to many radio stations as a promo maxi, but it was never officially released.

In 1995, after almost a year of silence, the group released their second album, ‘Animals Or Human’. It didn’t match the sales of their debut album, but still shifted 200,000 copies.
