SWISS ALERT: Sophie Hunger

By Lizelle Jackson | January 28, 2009

It seems that finding a good band or artist here in Switzerland, is about as hard as finding chocolate that I don’t like…it just doesn’t happen very often. So it makes it all the more enjoyable when you do find that rare artist, one like Sophie Hunger. With a repertoire consisting of mainly acoustic folk songs, it was the hauntingly beautiful “Shape” that really got my attention. Check it out for yourself, and let me know what you think.

    I have no idea if there are many good bands or artists in Switzerland or not, but I will take Sophie’s songs over chocolate any time. And.. I live in Belgium, another country famous for its chocolate.

    She used to be in an alternative band before she went acoustic, and even then her voice already stood out.

    Beautiful songs, great lyrics and she plays the guitar very well. Her voice is at times soothing, yet it becomes a bit rough around the edges when she starts to scream. Even then she manages to convey emotions without overdoing it.
    In one word : versatile.

    Christina Aguilera and the likes should listen to these songs. Perhaps then they would realize that hitting amazingly high notes and using exaggerated vibrato is not a conditio sine qua non to touch the listener’s heart.

    And yes, Sophie’s songs go straight to the heart, corny as it may sound.
