About Sophie Hunger
Sophie Hunger’s first album was released together with the group Fisher under her real name Emilie Welti. Her next solo album Sketches on Sea, recorded at her apartment, was released under the pseudonym, Sophie Hunger. The surprising response to the album was the beginning of her rising career.
Sophie Hunger’s bittersweet songs are at the border of reality, irony, and fantasy, like morbid dreams with an atmosphere created by an atypical combination of trombone with guitar and piano. The lyrics are sometimes provocative, sometimes romantic and melancholic, but always without self-pity and pathos. To spice things up a bit, she added songs written and sung in German with a Swiss dialect to her repertoire. Sophie Hunger has a unique perspective as an author and singer-songwriter and is able to connect classics with the brand new.
