Sophie Dunér

Swedish Singer, Composer, Arranger and Painter Sophie Duner has been making waves in international Jazz/Contemporary/Avantgarde circles with her uniquely blended sound uniting the romantic and the spiritually elevated with the bold dissonance of satire drenched in tense colours that resolve into unpredictable scapes of expansion.

Drawing heavily on a variety of composers like Kurt Weill, Thelonious Monk, Charles Mingus, Hans Werner Henze, Dizzy Gillespie & Stravinsky to create what has been described as 'Dúneresque' by Grammy Award-winning Producer Michael Haas.

Based between Sweden and the US, the Berklee graduate mentored by the likes of George Garzone, Hal Crook and Ed Tomassi continues to fascinate with provocative melanges of sonic and visual colour.
