One day somebody stated : “Switzerland does not exist! " It was many years ago and it was,
if not totally true, not totally false either. Since then, a lot of water has flowed under the
bridge and a new generation of musicians decided to leave this cumbersome legacy behind
The Sophie de Quay duet perfectly represents this new multi-cultural generation open to the world. If the HQ of the duo is indeed based in Geneva, the group is most often on the road. All roads. From Switzerland, to Lebanon, Spain, China, Japan, India, Singapore, the francophone countries and to the United States. In just 4 years, the duet has given nearly 200 concerts in 15 different countries. The duet presents an electro pop which, whilst seeking to create bridges between aesthetics, illustrates their affinity with the cultural and geographical sound of music from around the world. To consolidate this artistic trait, the singer and front woman Sophie can rely on the experience and talent of Simon graduated from renown music schools acquiring a solid stage experience, having performed on many different projects. Live, the band's rich electro pop is masterfully
held together by Simon, multi instrumentalist and a drummer while Sophie, with her powerful and distinctive voice, creates an emotional and generous bond with the public allowing everyone to embark together on a special journey.
Nomad with a mission
The road the group is taking is based on a few irreducible values: love of music, of course, but also an open minded spirit and the desire to meet with other people. The lyrics of the song “Building Bridges” express this well:
"I'm a dreamer, a globe trotter, I spend my life crossing borders, I'm a traveler, nomad with a mission, Changes come from education!"
To meet its ends, the Sophie de Quay gives itself the means to achieve its ambitions. Without label or record company, its professional organization now guarantees total independence and the adequate tools to help them towards their destiny and be more daring and audacious, all the while staying true to themselves.
Big dreams! Why?
Since its first EP in 2017 and its first album Drop the Mask in 2018, the band multiplies appearances, both on stage and digitally, with this will to build close and lasting relationships with its many fans. In this new album, composed and produced by the duo with Tim Verdesca (a former member of the band), recorded in Paris in Benjamin Constant's studio and mixed by Lionel Capouillez at Studio Air in Brussels, Sophie proposes to continue the openings: she sings in English, French and Chinese, a country that Sophie knows well from having stayed there several times. In her songs, she also takes the opportunity to probe the soul of "Generation Y", a generation eager to get rid of its cumbersome legacies.
