AMAURY FAIVRE DUO

Thursday July 5

 

AMAURY FAIVRE DUO is composed of the guitar and harmonica player and singer Amaury Faivre and the guitar player Yves Staubitz. They met in 2010 while playing in an electric blues band and founded, on the side, an acoustic duo in 2013.

 

The duo wins the Swiss Blues Challenge 2017, sets out to represent the Suisse Blues Society during the International Blues Challenge 2018 last January in Memphis where they win a place in the semi-finals. They have just come back from Hell in Norway, where they defended the Swiss flag by winning a magnificent fourth place in the European Blues Challenge 2018.

 

Amaury’s compositions are a mixture of blues and pop-folk, with a pure acoustic sound, warm and sincere, with a little touch of the Keb’ Mo or John Mayer feeling.

 

Thanks to its unusual improvisations, this duo presents all at the same time, the emotion of blues, the freedom of jazz and the energy of punk.
