mellowtone – bringing trip hop back to switzerland

mellowtone's sound ranges from ambient to psychedelic trip hop, influenced by pop, rock and indie. mellowtone, that's catchy music, soft passion, without frills but endlessly versatile.

 

these mellow tones are shaped by the strong voice of singer martina birbaum, who makes the music of mellowtone sometimes melancholic, sometimes stirring, but always unmistakable. responsible for the sound behind the voice are mirco ackermann (guitar), ives schmidt (piano), matthias haymoz (bass) and beat huber (drums).
