Zermatt Unplugged, Zermatt
AVEC has been writing honest, unpretentious folk pop songs for many years, first successes came quickly for the then 20-year-old musician. Small gigs were followed by big ones, in the meantime AVEC has shared the stage with The Tallest Man On Earth, with Sting or Zucchero. She has toured Europe with her extended outstanding live band, collected awards and had her songs not only played by radio stations, but also in television commercials.
"Homesick" is an album about friendships and how it feels to be deceived by them. It’s a reckoning with oneself and the counterpart, with the everlasting knowledge that perfection is not something you can acquire. Songs like "Runaway" or "Heavy on my mind" tell the old story in a new way – but unlike the recipes for success that are being shouted into our ears everywhere in our self-optimization society, they don't sound like another promising guidebook. They have been written by someone who knows about darkness. And who knows that the greatest help on the way out is sharing your own story.
