Extremely excited and still asking myself how we even got here – but this fall Lisa Hoppe’s Third Reality releases its first album called The Mighty Unlikely. To be precise, it’s going to be available (online & in store) on October 16th and you will have the chance to see us live in Germany, Switzerland & NYC and get your copy right there.
It’s been a wonderful – sometimes challenging, always rewarding – process, from putting together this band, writing & recording the music, to mixing, mastering and making it a record. I’m very honored that Cologne-based label JazzHausMusik is on board (and recommend you checking out their other great releases!).
New Release: „Will This Computer Ever Sing To Me Like My Mother?“ – is a collection of four songs that was recorded, arranged and (mostly) composed at Banff Centre, Alberta, Canada in August 2018.
It was made possible with the help of these great musicians and friends: Louna Dekker Vargas on flutes, Sebastián Sáenz on trumpet/fluegel, Daniel Bruno on trombone, Aaron Edgcomb on drums/percussion and the genius Eden Girma on voice (who also accidentally came up with the EP title). Furthermore, special thanks to Daniel Bruno for mixing and Gaya Feldheim Schorr for the artwork, and of course, the Banff Centre, that was such an inspiring resource for me, as it is for many, many other artists and performers.
Exciting Things That Happen Soon…
Third Reality just recorded an album! It will be released in November 2019, followed by a tour through Germany & Switzerland. More about all that soon here. You can catch us a bit sooner on February 20, Branded Saloon, Brooklyn!
Laura Schuler, Luzius Schuler and me aka ESCHE just returned from a wonderful band time in Paris and tour – and already looking forward to the next one! We’ll be back in fall, more about it soon!
I’m excited to be touring with Marc Jufer & Devin Gray from March 22-30 in France, Belgium and Switzerland. We will celebrate the release of the album „A Trip To The Center“ which is actually like its name – a trip!!!!!
