Wyn Hoop is a German singer. In the early 1950s, Hoop formed a jazz band called the Capitellos, who toured and worked on radio before disbanding in 1958. Hoop started to make solo recordings, at first under the name Fred Lyssen, before settling on the professional name Wyn Hoop. In 1960, he represented Germany in the Eurovision Song Contest. Hoop recorded several successful German cover versions of English-language hits before joining forces in 1962 with Finnish singer Pirkko Mannola, with whom he recorded a number of popular tracks. From 1964, Hoop began recording with Austrian singer Andrea Horn, who he had married in 1961. Their material was mainly folk music oriented. In 1978, Hoop and Horn retired from show business. They have since established themselves as successful publishers of sailing guidebooks, and contributors of travelogues to magazines and newspapers.
