ABOUT

SOUNDHOTEL is the musical collaboration of singer/songwriter and dancer Mani Obeya and photographer, director and artist Andreas H. Bitesnich. The duo were active between 2003 and 2007, creating two studio albums and one live album.
The chance encounter between them 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 the sweet soul numbers like Is Love Enough? and ballads like End Of An Affair right through to the more classic pop numbers like WonderfulBeautiful dayBetween 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 nothing more than Obeya’s voice and Bitesnich on acoustic guitar.
The SOUNDHOTEL recordings and live performances were musically enriched by the following artists: bassist Peter Gruber, pianist 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.
