Siebenthal: that's the guitarist and vocalist Peter von Siebenthal who composes, plays and sings his own songs. Today, Peter von Siebenthal, who was born in 1967, solely plays the acoustic guitar. In the old days it used to be a little bit different.
Back in 1991, Siebenthal won a major competition in the canton of Solothurn. Siebenthal took the stage as the last band of the night. The jury consisted of well-known established personalities from the Swiss music scene. "As the group Siebenthal entered the stage, it became obvious to anyone that the winner would be the band Siebenthal". (Solothurn newspaper, June 28, 1991). In summer 1991 the band went to the studio to record their first album that was released in late 1991.
USA: In 1993 the band packed up their bags and moved to Austin, Texas USA. For the next seven months the Solothurn rock trio Siebenthal played Austin. "We paid our dues there“, bandleader and guitarist Peter von Siebenthal said back at the home in early 1994. „We played 24 concerts; and we were on local TV with one song.“
"The American bands are selling very well," said Siebenthal, so the band put a a portfolio together, participated as often as possible to the numerous jam sessions and knocked personally on the doors of the clubs, always on the lookout for some opportunities to perform.
New Album 2015: The former band no longer exists today and the music has changed, too. Today, Peter von Siebenthal doesn't play the electric guitar anymore - instead, he has been solely playing the acoustic guitar for the last couple of years. Peter von Siebenthals new album contains 11 acoustic guitar pop songs. The album will be released by TIMEZONE, a record company from Osnabrueck, Germany.
