About Sophie Hunger
Sophie Hunger was born in Bern and had a cosmopolitan childhood and youth. She grew up in Germany, Switzerland and London because her father worked as a diplomat. English is Sophie Hunger’s second mother tongue and her voice sounds like a surreal combination of Björk, Joni Mitchell and Alice in Wonderland.
Her first album was released together with the band Fisher under their birth name Emilie Welti. Her first solo album, Sketches on Sea, was recorded in her apartment and published under the pseudonym Sophie Hunger. This was followed by several albums such as Monday’s Ghost (2008), The Rules Of Fire (2013) or Molecules (2018), while the style of the musician gradually developed from folk pop to electro pop.
