Thief is a collaborative project between Sascha Gottschalk and two members of Jazzanova, Stefan Leisering and Axel Reinemer (together Extended Spirit). At the center of the project there is singer and guitarist Sascha Gottschalk who together with Extended Spirit has managed to build a bridge between a classical singer-songwriter concept and the advanced studio productions of Jazzanova. Often the song writing and production is reminiscent of the Beatles. Folk and psychedelic sound, the audio openness of tremolo guitars and other “real” instruments meet the futuristic touch of typically Jazzanova synthesizers with their sometimes claustrophobic introvertedness. A perceptive prism of the senses comes about in combination with Gottschalk’s manic and sensitive lyrics.
