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
