Eliane Amherd Eliane Amherd

Eliane is one of the hottest forces of the New York City's music scene. The Swiss-born singer, guitarist and songwriter graduated from The New School University for Jazz and Contemporary Music, New York in 2000. Since then her original music and lyrics, a groovy mix of all her influences, has been creating quite a buzz. Her album “Now and from Now on” which is broadcast internationally, continues to receive great press reviews and has topped the play list of several US Radio Stations.

Besides her performances as a leader or a featured artist in New York’s most famous clubs like SOB’s, Zinc Bar, Nublu, the Jazz Standard, Joe’s Pub, the Blue Note, Cornelia’s Street Cafe, Nuyorican Poets Cafe, she also tours in North- and South America, Canada, Europe and Asia, where she performed at several Festivals like the International Jazz 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 and the Giant Steppes of Jazz Festival in Mongolia.

Eliane also arranged and produced the Swiss Miss Sampler “heimweh”, featuring famous Swiss artists like Eliana Burki, Nubya, Gigi Moto, Mia Aegerter etc. This recording has earned her many great press reviews, several interviews on Swiss national radio stations and an appearance on the popular Swiss talk show “Aeschbacher”. In 2013 she was a candidate of the first edition of “the Voice of Switzerland” on Swiss National TV. Since 2014 she plays guitar in the all female NYC band “As Lolas” playing Brazilian psychedelic 70ties Rock and taking over NYC by storm. Since 2010 she is the musical director of the “frauenstimmen Festival” in her home town Brig, Switzerland

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
