At this point we'd like to introduce a few people who have accompanied Clueso along his way as friends and colleagues. His former drummer, the brilliant mutli-instrumentalist Tim Neuhaus. Tim is directly involved in all of Clueso's albums, as a composer and musician. Both paths are constantly crossing and intersecting - be it in the studio or up on stage. Tim also tours across the country with his own band. They're called: Tim Neuhaus.
The next one in this noteworthy round of folk we'd like to introduce: Alex Binder. He's first and foremost a bass player, but actually also guitarist and most of all song writer. From all of Clueso's records, many faves were penned by Alex himself. He also plays in many primarily jazz bands.
Then there's Gyuri. Actually, his name is György Ferenczi, but that's too hard to read and even harder to pronounce! Along with the others, he feels right at home with several different instruments. Besides violin and sometimes Blues guitar, this Hungarian plays the Blues Harp (harmonica) like no other! He may be only one man playing one sound, but the goosebumps are always present. His band is called Rackajam and he accompanied Clueso at the 'Ein Hartz für Berlin'-festival as well as in his 'Mitnehm' music video.
The important man behind the scenes is Ralf C. Mayer. Since the album 'Gute Musik', he's been working alongside Clueso figuring out and destining the typical and well-known 'Clueso sound'. Ralf Mayer is a sound engineer, producer, consultant, and friend all in one. He's got a damn good nose for those songs that should be put out separately as a single.
On the other hand, Baris Aladag, our personal Director is responsible for the living pictures. With the exception of 'Mitnehm', not a single music video has been directed without him since Clueso's single 'Out of Space'. Baris is also the man giving many of Clueso's lyrics a final polish. Since 'So sehr dabei', not a single song, text, or important idea can escape Baris' opinion, final touch, and blessings into the crude and harsh world of fans and critics.
As the circle of friends and all those involved is constantly growing and expanding--faster than we can describe here--this article will definitely continue to be updated. Thanks to everyone, even those who haven't been mentioned.
