When you press COSMIC LATTE – Ruben Roeh (guitar), Burkard Ruppaner (drums), and Tim Steiner (bass) – to define their music, they’ll share a telling look. How would anyone go about explaining this near-molecular bond? All three are formally trained musicians and as sidemen, have shared the stage hundreds of times, backing an eclectic roster of artists and performing a plethora of styles.

To detox, they’d occasionally get together for a palette-cleansing jam and while traversing their vast musical repertoire, discovered unprecedented common ground. Following this trajectory felt almost like an obligation.

With COSMIC LATTE, they now combine that impressive track record with their fortuitously aligned tastes and complimentary skill sets, and what you end up with is little short of magic – now available in the form of “Trapezia”: Nine tracks bursting with masterful musicianship, tasteful themes, colorful chords – all juxtaposed against a set of galloping grooves, concocted by a trio, who’s hearts, souls, and immense musical skill are in perfect sync.
