Kasper Staub trio was formed in Aarhus, Denmark in 2010. They released their debut album '/' in 2012, which was mentioned one of the best danish debut albums that year. Next album, 'Havnepladen', was released in 2014. It was distributed as just 100 12” copies in old, reversed record sleeves with handmade serigraphic print on each one of them.

The latest album 'Strøg', that was selected as 'album of the week' on danish national radio P8, points out a new direction to the trio. The entire album opens with an actual soundcheck ('Zoom Out'), an improvised unintentional playing-around, that accidentally was being recorded during the session. It's as if the grammophone needle was being dropped down somewhere in the middle of the record. This kind of sudden, unconcerned and liberated state of mind set an ideal mood for the album, that was recorded during fall 2016.

The debut album by the trio, displaying the telepathic interplay in the group. They've found a sound of a lyrical, modern romantic nature, with a minimalistic approach, which shows in their future releases.

Havnepladen

"At heart of it all, however, is a singing lyricism and Staub's greatest strength is still his ability to craft airy and memorable melodies. Together with his trio, he is able to move in any possible direction. Havnepladen isn't a safe call, but a bold statement from a trio that has already found its own sound and has begun to test its own musical boundaries." - Jakob Baekgaard, All About Jazz.

‘Strøg’ points out a new direction to the trio. The entire album opens with the actual soundcheck (‘Zoom Out’), an improvised playing-around, that accidentally was being recorded during the session. It’s as if the grammophone needle was being dropped down somewhere in the middle of the record. This kind of sudden, unconcerned and liberated state of mind set an ideal mood for the album, that was recorded in two separate days during fall 2016.
