Hummus Records session

"Emilie Zoé whispers in your ear cries that don't hurt" (Arnaud Robert, Le Temps).
Emilie Zoé scores with her rough guitar playing and the effectiveness of her melodies. His voice is fragile and raw, by turns caressing or cheeky, and some compare it to that of PJ Harvey or Cat Power. Although of French mother tongue, his songs written in English are a way of appropriating the indefinable and of seeking emotional answers to the rational questions that occupy his mind.
Essentially self-taught, the singer-songwriter from Lausanne released his first solo EP EMPTY in 2013, written over 4 years of touring Europe as guitarist and backing vocalist for Anna Aaron (Two Gentlemen, label of The Young Gods and Sophie Hunger).
Through her voice and her magnetic presence, Emilie Zoé forged a strong reputation on stage, in contrast to the minimalist charm of her records. Developing a long-term complicity with Neuchâtel drummer Nicolas Pittet, the project forms a duo and gives a growing series of electric and intense concerts. New pieces are formed little by little in contact with the stage. This ten bittersweet songs bathed in twilight rock is immortalized in 2018 on the album The Very Start. Confirming the fruitful collaboration with Hummus Records, this album was met with widespread enthusiasm from the press and the public upon its release, and earned Emilie Zoé the “Best Act Romandie” prize at the 2019 Swiss Music Awards.

After the release of their second album GEOGRAPHY, SVARTS is back with a new team of fresh musicians. A little gem created by Romain Siegenthaler and polished by Julien Fehlmann, the project wanders through an intimate and melancholy universe enveloped by the voice of Léa Martinez. Oscillating between synth pop and shoegaze, SVARTS evolves in a comforting and complex sphere in which we let ourselves be carried away.

Stephane Blok
First a street musician, he then studied music at the School of Jazz and Current Music in Lausanne from 1990 to 1994. He was then assistant to Antoine Auberson in the creation of film and theater music. At 23, he released a first six titles Esperanza Nicholasohn, followed two years later by the album Les Hérétiques then three new albums. More than 300 concerts with Arthur Besson, Marcket Besson, Gregoire Guhl and Philippe de Rham follow the release of the various albums.
At the same time, he shows his interest in all forms of artistic expression.
The news of Stéphane Blok's career is written from a decisive meeting: that of Léon Francioli. From 2005, the two artists got down to a joint project, Boum, whose album was released in 2006. This first collaboration did not remain a dead letter since two other projects followed it: La grande eau in 2008, and Chronique du predictable in 2009. Motivated by this meeting, he then embarked on learning the guitar without frets: after four years of study, the show Chants d'entre les bâtiment was created in 2012, followed by Complaintes de larain qui passe (2014): these two albums were rewarded by the Charles-Cros Academy in 2015. In 2016, Stéphane was appointed co-librettist of the Fête des Vignerons 2019.
His approach continues in the practice of the fretless baritone guitar with Poèmes de laveille: a first version of the album is signed in the summer of 2020 under the rock label Hummus-Records which will then publish Stéphane's albums as well as his back catalog. Stéphane Blok's texts and poems have been published by Bernard Campiche Éditeur since 2012.
