ÉMILIE ZOÉ

ÉMILIE ZOÉ (CH)

Biography

She is one of those able to give a lot with the bare essentials. Bare essentials? A guitar, a piano, drums and a voice balancing perfectly delicacy and intensity. A lot? A music that gives you chills. She might be hiding behind her two first names, Emilié Zoé reveals a lot in Shakespeare’s tongue, with songs balancing on a rock wire, strained and dented, created with her best friend, drummer Nicolas Pittet and getting her closer to two glorious predecessors, PJ Harvey and Cat Power. Amongst a myriad of ongoing projects (musical readings, film-concerts, a record with the “Young God” Franz Treicher), she records in pairs bewitching disks (such as the wonderful “Hello Future Me”). And when she gets on stage, no one gets away unscathed.
