This is my work, what I vouch for, what I want to be respected and someday regularly paid for. 
So dear reader, whatever gender you were born with, whatever gender you chose, whatever bondage and suppression comes along with it - fight for your work, your wages, your respect and our equality - today and everyday!

PAPER PUPPETRY FOR “IM RHY”

SINGLE “MAUERN” & VIDEO FROM MEXICO

Two dear friends of mine in Mexico made this video clip to my song, showing their own view on migration and migrational issues. The video gives an insight on what it might be, trying to leave Mexico, as well as on what it might become, trying to leave any country in the world if one doesn’t have the „right“ passport.

I am very thankful to Joel Olmedo & Juan Jacobo del Castillo and very proud of their work!
I hope you like it too and hopefully the song helps us tear down some of the walls being built around us at this very moment,
A bientôt

A SHORT STORY ABOUT THE ISLAND LESVOS...
One year ago I have spent some time on the Greek Island Lesvos, helping to build up the community center "One Happy Family" for arriving refugees. This period made me think about many things, about how I live, how others live, about how I act or don't act towards that and how Europe does.
The two songs "Windmill" and "Hey You"- recorded live with loustic sessions - have emerged from my pondering - I hope they can give you an insight!
Bisou

This Zurich born musician is something like the Swiss response to Björk. Various influences, mysterious and - have you plunged into her universe of sound - captivating.
