Shade was built in 1989 in Berlin as a simple duet of two friends, called Chris Rennier and Timur Liebscher. At the first time the music was built only on piano with a natural voice. Later Bino a drummer and Sascha a guitar player was joint Shade. After some gigs all members of Shade must agree, that they won’t go the same way together anymore…
Shade was build new in 1991 from Chris Rennier. At this time Shade was: Sepp Hermann, guitar - Olaf Seifert, bass - Chris Rennier, keys - Timur Liebscher, voice. After some gigs (Knaak, Rockcafe…) Sepp and Timur left the band, after some problematical singers, Chris takes the part of the vocalist, but then it starts a long time of searching the right guitar player …
Shade has any different guitar players, on of them called Peter Leszinski, who played some good concerts, we were very sad as he left the band to get in business with a "shoes-hop".
1998 Shade decided to join a bow player called Harald Wolf. Later on it was necessary to find a second guitar player. At this time a technician called Marcus Pawlick has changed to the musician side of Shade. 1999 after Peter was leaving, a new first-guitar player called Felix Faust joint the band. The guitar sound gets more straight to Rock and Rhythm.
Shade played in 1999 and 2000 at the WGT in Leipzig the Concert-Reading "Wer ist Was ?". After Shade published his MP-CD "frühes Morgenrot" with some selfproduced Songs and live recordings, including a reading with Eckart Schulz, we decided to cancel the reading out of our program.
Some Gigs followed together with Dead Freddys, Ikon and Jetane Demone. Shade started the recordings of the new MP-CD called "procurer" and published it in 2001.
2001 Dennis Kölpin joint Shade as drummer. We become some Trip-Hop Drums to our Wave Sound…
In the end of 2003 Felix left Shade, but soon in Januar 2004 we found Dirk as new guitar player, who adds the guitar the touch of Wave back, that all have missed since Shade's beginning. The CD "promo recast zero" was finished but we haven't found a label to release it like we thought. We had to release it by our own. After Jörg remunerate Dennis in 2004, the time has come to fixed the new songs in a MP-CD. Now we work on it, and it will called "nurse hopes" to show that we never will give up.
The music of Shade grows in all the time to a bright collection of different influence of many genres. The new formation gives the band more power and rhythm on all live gigs.
