Click on the link here for Audio Player: Sophie Hunger – in concert at Paleo Festival – Nyon, Switzerland – July 23, 2013 – RSR
Since we’re still knee-deep in festivals this Summer, I just ran across this one from the Paleo Festival in Nyon, Switzerland which was recorded only a few days ago.
Sophie Hunger is from Zurich and she was a surprise hit at the 2008 Montreux Festival. Her sound is a mixture of a lot of different influences. And so is her singing, which goes from French to English to German, sometimes within the same song. She also had the distinction of being the first Swiss act to play the John Peel stage at Glastonbury in 2010. Since then, she’s toured a lot throughout Europe and has made a few appearances in Canada.
Her fourth album, The Danger of Light was issued in 2012 and her first North American release was in 2011.
So Sophie Hunger, hitting the ripe old age of 30, has a pretty impressive track record.
Tonight’s post features Sophie recorded on July 23rd before an enthusiastic crowd – complete with encore.
Good stuff, and further evidence there’s a lot happening this festival season – and we’re not even half-way through.
