ELIANE AMHERD & IRIS MONÉ

 

Eliane and Iris are two singer-songwriters hailing from Switzerland and based in the USA. Eliane calls both the rocky Swiss Valais Alps and New York City’s concrete jungle her homes. Iris with Italian roots grew up by the pristine lakes of the Swiss canton Ticino and now lives by the Pacific Ocean in San Diego. Long time friends, their musical journey has brought them all over the world representing Swissness in festivals, embassies, and major events including the World Expo in Milan, the reception of the Swiss president 2024, Viola Amherd, La Settimana della Lingua Italiana in Central America, and many more. Eliane and Iris both appeared on The Voice of Switzerland and performed in the prestigious Montreux Jazz Festival and Ascona Jazz Festival among others. 

Eliane and Iris make a powerful and charismatic duo, capturing international audiences with their diverse musical styles and linguistic prowess. They bring a wealth of talent and experience to the stage, highlighting their individual creativity and seamless synergy. The charming Swiss Misses offer a concert experience that ranges from fresh takes on Swiss Folk music, French and Italian repertoire, original arrangements of 80s Euro Hits in countless languages, and a musical wine tasting featuring Swiss wines. Both prolific songwriters, singers, and multi-instrumentalists, they add their own style and mastery to every project they create. 

On request, Eliane and Iris also host an interactive audience competition of concert and pop music trivia. This blend of game show formats (think Jeopardy, Jeux sans frontières, and Name that Tune) has audience teams test their knowledge of each other's pop culture by identifying hit songs with just a few notes or guessing national hits across several decades. This musical experience is a perfect networking icebreaker for a cultural exchange between different countries or an opportunity to playfully compete with your co-workers or club members from your own culture.
