SOUNDHOTEL is the musical collaboration of dancer, choreographer and songwriter Mani Obeya and photographer, director, artist and producer Andreas H. Bitesnich.
A chance encounter in 2003 quickly resulted in their surprisingly successful first album Your Place, published by Universal Music in 2004.
What unites all songs is an infectious melody that immediately moves the soul and warms the spirit.
The wide stylistic range of both musicians is evident in sweet soul numbers like Is Love Enough? and ballads like End Of An Affair right through to more classic pop numbers like Wonderful, Beautiful day, Between Love And Disaster and the groovy 70’s-influenced Without Even Trying.
The music and lyrics were often composed spontaneously during evening jam sessions with Obeya’s voice and Bitesnich on acoustic guitar.

The SOUNDHOTEL recordings and live performances were musically enriched by the following artists: Bassist Peter Gruber, multi instrumentalist Michael Lindner, Wolfgang Luckner on drums, and jazz and symphony orchestra musician Flip Philip on Vibraphone. Singer Vera Böhnisch and Papermoon bassist Cathi Friedmann also lent their talents as backing singers.

After taking a break for several Years SOUNDHOTEL “reopened” 2019. At a time, when the world was forced to a standstill, Mani and Andreas started writing more intensively and new recording sessions began.
Resulting in LEAVE IT THERE as the first title of the forthcoming album AND THE WORLD RUSHED IN.
Scheduled for publication summer 2023.

“There is always that magic when we get together to create music.”

SOUNDHOTEL is music for your soul.
