SUBSTEREO is a multinational band, currently based in Copenhagen, Denmark. The band consists of Mads Linquist, Chris Walker, Kaspar Kjeldsen and Lasse Fernov.
The band is heavily influenced by artists like Pink Floyd, The Beatles, Eric Clapton, Queen and David Bowie, all which in turn makes for a heavy dose of smooth mainstream alternative rock.
The goal is simple. It's all about getting the music out there!
The band believes in the music, and its main purpose is therefore to spread it as far as it'll go. This is also the main inspiration behind SUBSTEREO's strategy of establishing the project through any available medium, and not restricting itself to geographic or cultural boundaries.
An important aspect as to the way SUBSTEREO functions, is its belief in self improvement. There is always room for new methods, and approaches to making music. A great deal of time is therefore spent composing and arranging new material in the studio, while constantly perfecting the performance, in order to give the listener the best experience possible. The band is therefore always receptive to constructive criticism.
The members of SUBSTEREO come from quite different backgrounds. Most notable, is its International touch. While Mads, Lasse and Kaspar are from Denmark, Chris is Mexican/Danish/American, born in Austria, and brought up in the U.S. The Band’s musical background and influence is equally diverse, making for a unique approach to the actual production and marketing of the project. In addition to the international touch, two of the four members of SUBSTEREO have a military background, (including deployments to Iraq and Africa with the United Nations). As strange a combination this may seem, it has specifically contributed to a structured and focused method of managing the band’s endeavors.
Chris lives in Berlin and was born in Vienna, Austria to a Danish & Mexican/American parents. He grew up in the the U.S., U.K., Mexico, Sweden, and Denmark, and has a backround as an officer in the Army with deployments to Iraq and Africa. He is Currently studying Songwriting at BIMM-Berlin.
Mads is currently studying Music Production at The British and Irish Modern Music Institute in Berlin, and has previously studied music production at Rytmisk center in Copenhagen. Mads is the driving force in recording and mixing Substereo’s songs in the studio.
Kaspar is from Kalundborg, Denmark and is also a computer engineer. He has an extensive musical background, and therefore also plays the piano as well as the guitar and bass guitar. His computer skills are also put to good use in the band, making sure all IT related aspects run smoothly (website, Studio etc..)
Lasse is from Copenhagen, Denmark and has a background in Graphic Design. This means that apart from playing the bass guitar, Lasse is the main guy in the band for Visual Design, from everything from cover designs to promotional material.
