Eliane Amherd Eliane Amherd

Singer, guitarist and songwriter Eliane Amherd is a true cosmopolitan artist: Born in Switzerland, she lives in New York, and it is that city’s 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. Amherd is an equally talented composer/lyricist whose words and music are as refreshing as the air of the Swiss Alps where she was raised. 

A graduate from The New School University for Jazz and Contemporary Music, she performs as a leader or a featured artist in New York’s premiere clubs like SOB's,  Blue Note, Nublu, BAM, BBKing etc. and tours in North- and South America, Canada, Europe and Asia, where she appeared in international Festivals in China, Thailand, the Philippines, Myanmar, Malaysia, Nepal and Mongolia, like the International Festival in Hong Kong, the Beijing Nine Gate Jazz Festival, the Shenzhen OCT Loft Festival, the Beishan International Festival in Zhuhai, the Jazzmandu Festival in Kathmandu, the Giant Steppes of Jazz Festival in Mongolia, the Yangon World Music Festival in Myanmar, the Unplugged Festival in Zermatt and the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland, the Mondo.NYC Festival with Swiss Live Talents etc.    Her albums “Now and from Now on” and “Skylines” which are broadcast internationally, continue to receive great press reviews and have topped the play list of several US Radio Stations. Eliane also arranged and produced the Swiss Miss Sampler “heimweh”, featuring reknown Swiss artists like Eliana Burki, Nubya, Gigi Moto, Corin Curschellas, Mia Aegerter etc. This recording has earned her many great press reviews, interviews on Swiss national radio stations and an appearance on the popular Swiss talk show “Aeschbacher”.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
