It is a great pleasure to welcome the talented singer and composer Sophie Dunér to our client roster.
Sophie is from Sweden, and has lived and performed internationally. Her roots are in jazz, and her music and performances are a fusion of jazz and contemporary classical idioms. Through this fusion, Sophie has created her own fresh and wild voice. As the renowned producer of her album The City of My Soul, Michael Haas, states: “it’s Dunéresque – a newly created genre!”
The City of My Soul was released with Big Round Records, a Parma Recordings Company. The City of My Soul was one of Parma’s top albums for digital sales in February 2015, and Sophie will also be featured on a compilation of the PARMA Music Festival 2014, to be released in June. Sophie has also collaborated with top musicians including, electric cellist Jeremy Harman from the Sirius Quartet, The Callino Quartet, Rory Stuart, Matt Pennman, Kahlil Kwame Bell and most recently Dominic Duval, Bertram Lehmann and Fernando Huergo. She has toured the U.S and Buenos Aires, as well as performing across Europe.
Sophie is multi-talented, and is also a painter. Many of her paintings reference the musical influence in her life. Her work is included alongside 17 other European artists in an art book by Swedish gallery owner Christian Boétus – a copy of The City of My Soul has been included in every book. Audiovisual concerts are now a large part of Sophie’s work. Her songs are already strongly connected to her paintings, which are projected digitally at performances.
