Singer, guitarist and songwriter Eliane Amherd is a true cosmopolitan musician. Born in Switzerland, she lives in New York. Urban life offers 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.
She widely tours in North and South America, Canada, Europe, and Asia, where she frequently appeared in music festivals. During this tour, she will perform at jazz clubs in eight Chinese cities.
Her albums “Now and from Now on” and “Skylines” which were broadcasted internationally, continue to receive great press reviews and have topped the playlist 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 stations and an appearance on the popular Swiss talk show “Aeschbacher”. In 2013 she was a candidate of the first edition of “The Voice of Switzerland” on Swiss National TV and in 2017 she was the runner up for “Best Singer Songwriter in Switzerland” at the Montreux Jazz Festival.
