As was the case with their past albums, aiming at perfection
stands in the center of the production of their newest CD
‚Colors of being’. The studio of their first choice was the Disciples’
very own Eagle Records Studio. The songs received
the finishing touch from the hands of mastering guru Glenn
Miller in his Greenwood Studios.
Not incidental to the music, but carefully woven, inspired by
concern for human issues. Nevertheless, the underlying tone
is refreshing and optimistic. The message that comes across
is one of joy and vitality.
Throughout their 17-year history, the Disciples never were an
after hours combo. The band is not a project, it’s an attitude,
a passion to which all members dedicate a majority of their
spare time. They are well on their path and should large success
cross this path in the near future, they will also tackle
Matthias Schranz (vocals, guitar). Two musical personalities
reside in his body. He works full-time as classical cellist
and teaches at the Academy of Music in Berne. In contrast,
the band is his outlet for surplus energy. He works the guitar
strings roughly and his strong and voluminous voice is a guarantee
for goose bumps.
Andreas Siegenthaler (Hammond organ, piano, keyboards,
vocals). He thrives on broadly bubbling hammond sounds and
delicate piano tunes and is at least as exuberant as the horn
of his leslie amp.
Jan Zinsel (bass, vocals) is the man in the background. His
bass runs have a continuing effect on the stomach pit. His
lyrics stimulate the activity of the brainwaves.
Philippe Marti (drums, percussion, vocals). He is a professor
of physics, 28 years of age and the junior of the band. His
fresh approach and innate feeling for rhythm provide for the
tight and groovy beat. The band serves him well as a playground
for experiments in the field of gravity.
Lukas Loosli is responsible for the buttons, faders and other
things on the mixing console, of which musicians don’t have
a clue. May the clear sound always be with him.
Matthias Luethi is the manager, graphic designer and critical
voice of the band.
