Greenhaus, established in 1999, with early 12" releases on Beggars Banquet and Kickin Records, "were" considered a techno outfit. Nowadays the band couldn't be further removed from that genre. Over the last few years and with many live gigs and tours behind them (including supports with Gary Numan, De/Vision, Jon Foxx and Mesh) the band has recorded and released two albums.
Another Life (2004) has been described as 'best suited for those into lunar and dreamy moods’, 'space rock with electro grooves' and 'an album that really announced Greenhaus' arrival as a major player in the modern music scene'. The previous album - The Unmistakeable Sound of Sloth (2002) - was described as 'the offspring between ambient and wave' and an 'essential album that will cater to a wide range of musical tastes'.
The band now comprises original member Steve Bellamy on production, arrangement, guitars, keyboards and electronics, with solo artist Phoenix J providing main and backing vocals, melody and lyric writing. Additional members to their live shows include Clark Denham on bass guitar, Warren Farr on drums, Susana Duende on keyboards and backing vocals, and more recently, Mark Anthony James on guitar.
Although other singers have appeared now and then, including Lahannya and Anthony Neale, Phoenix has really stamped her name on the future releases. Her beautifully crafted melodies and tone lend to the overall offering being described as 'almost therapeutic' and likened to Massive Attack and the Cocteau Twins.
The band has completed their latest studio album You're Not Alone which was released in Germany on 21 Nov 2005, with the UK release planned for Autumn of 2006. With the new album introducing live strings and woodwind arrangements, solo guitars by former member Jon Williams, as well as live drums provided by Achim Faerber of Project Pitchfork, You're Not Alone will continue, and take much further, the chill out themes of Another Life.
