Next concert: Saturday, August 31, 8-10pm at Gleis 1 Cafe, at the Naenikon-Greifensee train station. Admission is free.
Zurich songwriters Christine Grimm and Ben Inteso perform both solo and as a duo to create a colorfully diverse palette of music that ranges from pop to folk-rock. The program is in English, but a limited knowledge of it shouldn’t keep anyone from enjoying the concert since music is a universal language. The group is available for concerts, club performances, and private events such as parties in the greater Zurich area.
Pianist Ben Inteso writes in the pop genre with dreamy musical landscapes and solid hooks hinting at the 80s and 90s. A native of Germany and resident of Zurich since 2008, his many years of living in English-speaking countries have promoted his ability to write poignant and humorous lyrics. Fan favorites include ““Naked Neighbor” and “Tea Dance,” the second of which is on his premiere Wave in Me CD. Song samples are here.
While living in Santa Barbara/CD, guitarist Christine Grimm produced her No Time to Be Blue CD and received this review: “Imbued with passion, personal appeal, humor and life, Grimm is a highly entertaining figure… using pop, folk, rock and blues as backdrops for her intricate and subtle story songs.” Her move to Switzerland in 2015 has influenced her songwriting, as can be heard in new songs such as “November Rose” and “Fragile.” Her www.ChristinaGrimmMusic.com offers more information and earlier songs.
