VOYAGE VOYAGE, the iconic ‘80s hit, first sung by Desireless, travels down a fresh route, courtesy of New York based singer / songwriter, Eliane Amherd. Swiss born Amherd, who has spent her career crafting a signature sound that reflects her bossa nova soul, coupled with New York grit, not only sings, plays guitar— but also produces and arranges. What we get is glissant vocals nestled between lush but minimal layers of guitars, bass, and beats. The track harnesses the talents of such New York music scene mainstays as Rosa Avila on drums, Amanda Ruzza (bass), and legendary percussionist, Bashiri Johnson who conjures shimmery accents. The accompanying video, created by Onome Ekeh of Futurezoo, opens up into a dreamscape of ancient symbols colliding with modern day angst, and whimsy— flowering into mandalas of subconscious activity. The musical traveler finds themselves in an unexpected playground. About Eliane: Singer, guitarist and songwriter Eliane Amherd http://elianeperforms.com/ 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.  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 most famous clubs like SOB's, Blue Note, BAM, BBKing etc. She also tours in North- and South America, Canada, Europe and Asia, where she appeared in international Festivals in China, Thailand, the Philippines, Myanmar, Malaysia, Nepal, Mongolia,  Monteux Jazz Festival, Zermatt Unplugged in Switzerland 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. Eliane also arranged and produced the Swiss Miss Sampler “heimweh”, featuring famous Swiss artists. This recording has earned her many great press reviews, several interviews on Swiss national radio stations and an appearance on the popular Swiss talk show "Aeschbacher". In 2013 she was a candidate of the first edition of "the Voice of Switzerland" on Swiss National TV and in 2017 she was the runner up for "best Singer Songwriter in Switzerland" at the Montreux Jazz Festival.
