Andreas Schaerer (CH) – vocals and mouth percussion
Swiss vocal artist Andreas Schaerer was a sensation at YSJF in 2018, when he performed with his band A Novel of Anomaly. He now returns to Ystad to offer more vocal innovations in an intriguing solo concert.
Andreas Schaerer is a performer who switches seamlessly between styles – from singing and crooning to scatting – and explores a wide spectrum of techniques including raw “sprechgesang” (an expressionist style between singing and speaking) and beat-boxing right through to elaborate operatic coloratura.
His album releases include “Out of Land” (2017) with saxophonist Emile Parisien among others, “A Novel of Anomaly” (2018) and the latest, “The Waves Are Rising, Dear” (2020) with his sextet Hildegard Lernt Fliegen (Hildegard Learns to Fly).
