At the age of eight, Frieder Torp moved from northern Germany to the Swiss Alps. Inspired by Swiss folk music, he learned to play the accordion at an early age. After that, his musical journey led him from punk rock to gipsy swing to his distinctive sound.

With sophisticated guitar pickings, shifting rhythms and harmonies, and dense arrangements, Torp makes the complex sound simple. That's how Torp's first single, "The Wild," made it into Swiss radio's hot rotation - and that's despite (or perhaps because) it's anything but the conventional pop song formula.

Tours and appearances at festivals followed. Torp recorded his first album on a farm. He used the lockdown to work on his second work, an EP called Siren Call. He now presents it live in a trio, together with guitarist Adrian Bissegger and bassist Benedict Schönenberger.
