Nicole Bernegger has soul in her blood, an electrifying voice and is one of the country's greatest live performers. After winning «Voice of Switzerland», records with gold status and various awards, she founded her own label in 2019. Her album «Alien Pearl» was played on over 20 radio stations and she played to sold-out houses until Corona paralysed the (music) world. After a creative reboot, Nicole Bernegger returned in 2022 with new music and gave a foretaste of the sound she has developed as a producer with her band, which will shape the new album to be released in 2023. While you can still hear the love for 60s soul, new tones resonate here: New Vintage Soul, Retro Pop, and a touch of Disco. As timeless and contemporary as their genre colleagues Black Pumas, Khruangbin, The Teskey Brothers or Silk Sonic. So earthy, warm, powerful, smooth and "to the touch", as one wishes music to be after the long time of social distancing!
