ELIANE AMHERD Eliane Amherd - voc, guit/ Yuriana Sobrino - drums/ Andy Dow - bass
and special guests

For the February 9 Valentines special Eliane is bringing back ( almost ) all the love songs she has ever written - the good the bad and the ugly ... lovely is what we meant :)

Singer, guitarist and composer Eliane Amherd is a true cosmopolitan artist: Born in Switzerland, she lives in New York, and it is that city’s savvy multicultural energy that most influences the unique sound of her original compositions: jazzy, groovy and rooted in African, Brazilian and Latin music. Inventive, enchanted yet earthy.

A graduate from The New School University for Jazz and Contemporary Music, she performs as a leader or a featured artist in New York’s most famous clubs like SOB's, Subrosa, Blue Note, Nublu, BAM, Brooklyn Bowl, BBKing etc. She also tours in North- and South America, Canada, Europe and Asia, where she appeared in international Festivals in China, Thailand, the Philippines, Myanmar, Malaysia, Nepal and Mongolia.

Her albums “Now and from Now on” and "Skylines" which are broadcast internationally, continue to receive great press reviews and have topped the play list of several US Radio Stations. Eliane also arranged and produced the Swiss Miss Sampler “heimweh”, featuring famous Swiss artists. This recording has earned her many great press reviews, several interviews on Swiss national radio and TV shows. In 2013 she was a candidate of the first edition of "the Voice of Switzerland" on Swiss National TV. She plays guitar in different NYC bands like the all female NYC band "As Lolas” playing Brazilian psychedelic 70ties Rock. She is the musical director of the "frauenstimmen Festival" in her home town Brig, Switzerland and in 2015 she was the musical director of the "OrchExtra Gottardo" at the Expo Milano, Italy.

"she sounds like what would happen if Norah Jones let her inner Patty Smyth (of Scandal), Pat Benatar, and Natalie Cole out." - This is Book’s music

"Eliane Amherd was the highlight of the event. Obviously this band stood out on different level." - Yangon Calling, Worldmusic Festival Yangon, Myanmar
