M. Walking on the Water is a German band from Krefeld. They described their genre as "short-distance-psycho-folk" in the beginning; by the time their last album was released, it had slowly changed to "long-distance-meta-pop". M. Walking on the Water was founded 1985 by Markus Maria Jansen and Mike Pelzer using rhytmmachines. After a while their line-up was enriched by Joshua Jankowitz and Ulrich Kisters. They soon started doing live-performances in unexpected places in the public.
