Subtone stands in the forefront of today's young innovative jazz
ensembles. Founded in 2005 in Berlin, its members now live on both
sides of the Atlantic, in St. John's, NL, Berlin and Cologne.
Through innumerable concerts at home and abroad, as well as
appearances at festivals, Subtone quickly established themselves as
one of the most sought-after jazz ensembles in Europe.
The individual members are all accomplished performers. Collectively, they have won prestigious awards like the U.S. National Trumpet Competition (Magnus Schriefl), the Bass Competition of the International Bass Convention (Matthias Pichler) and the Stingray Rising Star Award (Florian Hoefner) and have collaborated with artists and groups like the Kurt Rosenwinkel Trio, Seamus Blake, Joe Lovano, Dave Liebman and Randy Brecker. As a group, Subtone is also the winner of the Jury and Audience Award of the International Jazz Competition "Tremplin Jazz d'Avignon" in France.
With their own imaginative compositions, the five artists offer an inexhaustible selection, from the voluminous big-band sound to a bare-essential chamber music approach. What makes Subtone stand out from other ensembles is the impressive artistic connection among the five musicians. The listener perceives this intense communication and fundamental understanding among all members of the band in the very first notes.
