Special info: CONCERTS & EVENTS in the times of the Corona Crisis
DEAR MUSIC & CONCERT FANS

We are glad that, after the last months, during which most cultural events had to be cancelled or postponed as a result of the measures taken by the Swiss Federal Council in order to restrict the spreading of the coronavirus, live concerts are slowly coming back into our lives.

However, despite the official decision to allow events with above 1’000 visitors again as of October 2020, artists and concert organisers still have to deal with constantly changing and regionally differing measures – ranging from new limitations in the canton of Zurich, via registering-apps to mandatory mask-wearing or distancing rules in other places.

Therefore, we advise you to always check the official information of each event-location directly to inform yourself about the most accurate status and regulation of the concert you want to attend. Additionally, we would like to encourage every music-fan to use the Swiss Covid App, as we strongly believe that the more people act responsibly and observe the health-recommendations, the sooner we will succeed as a community to make attending social events secure again.

In the meantime, we are trying to keep you updated as good as possible about any changes in the corresponding artist & show information pages as well as via our social media channels.

Stay healthy, follow the recommended hygiene procedures and don’t lose your love for music!
Thank you, your team at Just Because.

In her new album, Next Time, The New York singer and songwriter leverages the freedom to soulfully speak her mind and share truths by way of vivid songwriting cast over swaths of lush acoustic guitars and dense piano chords. Impressed by his production on Nicole Atkins’ Slow Phaser, she reached out to producer Tore Johansson in Sweden. As a result, the environment lives and breathes in the background.

The first single “Mexico” plays out like a long lost fifties South-of-the-Border-set film noir. Punctuated by boisterous horns and an irresistible chant, the track illuminates both vocal charisma and a knack for storytelling.

Elsewhere on Next Time, “Black Water” invokes the smoky soul of bluesy jazz standards influenced by “a solitary feeling”. Finally, album closer “Tom C” leaves an intoxicating last word chased by faint guitar and hypnotic crooning, which bottles “this lonely hazy night of being alone in a bar.”

In many ways, the title signals the start of a new chapter for the songstress.

Elle France calls Sophie “Auster on fire” and sites the album as “a mix of sensual pop-folk and baroque”. After gracing the cover, of D La Republica, in Italy this year the magazine praises Auster for her “diva voice” drawing comparisons to “…Nina Simone, Billie Holiday, Tom Waits, Fiona Apple.” Jay N. Miller of The Patriot Ledger writes “Auster came away with an album that touches upon many styles, yet is unmistakably her own….the pop melodies and indelible hooks suggest she could cross over into massive chart success.”
