Born 1986 in Neuss, Sebastian Schleicher is a musician, composer & producer who has been playing guitars since 2004.
He fits well in different musical environments but puts his main focus on progressive rock/metal and in particular styles of pop music. Being a professional he decides to earn diverse skills in recording and mixing for music productions. In cooperation with the Logaton - professional media GmbH he supports certain music productions in different styles both as a studio guitarist/bassist, assistant producer and technical knowledge in songwriting and sounddesign.
In 2006 he forms the art rock band band Beside with Dennis Degen and Aljoscha Thaleikis which got a lot of line-up changes till this day. With Marcel Ackermann and Kai Steckmann they won the 1st place in a comptetion which supports talent and musicianship in local bands in Neuss. The latest line-up includes the touch guitarist Chris Herb and singer Tom Johannsen. Sebastian supervises all recordings in arranging and mixng and works as the main composer.
To gain more experimental influences he joins the progressive/experimental/jazz rock group A Fish's Diving Suit in early 2010 under the creative leadership of Chris Herb. First starting as an additional member he became a full member when Karsten Mroszczok was joining the band as well. Changes in musical style, which resulted from a change in the bands line-up(drums: Arthur Krol -> Dennis Degen), consequently lead to a new identity of the band and the new name A Birds Parachute.
In 2013, two of his projects made the 3rd place on the german rock & pop price for the best alternative rock band (Beside) and the best progressive rock band (A Bird's Parachute). All projects are still active and release compositions at irregular intervals.
Since 2014 he plays in the progressive rock band Amberfield with Karsten Mroszczok and Natalie Dröge and acts as a musician (guitars), main composer and as the producer.
In 2016, he joined the progressive rock band Glistening Leotard as a bassist and also acts as a composer and producer.
