Sophie Hunger: The first Swiss artist ever to play Glastonbury

Born in Bern and grew up in Zurich, Bonn and London. Because of her jazz-loving parents, her gateway to music was jazz which together with folk still form a core part of her writing style. At 19, she became a vocalist for an electronic collective called Superterz, and between 2004 and 2007, she fronted a jangly indie band, Fisher.

Her first solo album, Sketches on Sea (2006), introduced Europe to her slow burning intensity; the French daily newspaper Liberation declared that she “wouldn’t stay Switzerland’s best-kept secret for long”. She didn’t – her next album, Monday’s Ghost (2008), was a Swiss chart-topper but also got her attention all over Europe.

In 2010 she became the first Swiss artist ever to play Glastonbury. Since her last album, 2015’s Supermoon, Sophie has made major changes. She moved to Berlin, got passionate about analogue synths and electronic music – Berlin’s heartbeat. She exchanged her classical instruments for drum machines and computer software and decided to write a full English album.
