A first class creator


“This is a stunning album, the music of which certainly opens up new and quite astonishing possibilities for other jazz vocal artists around the world to emulate and expand. Dunér’s seriousness as an artist and a musician are not to be questioned. This is a first-class creator reaching out to expand further the sometimes-uncomfortable relationship between jazz and classical music.”

….her songs of such outstanding quality, that in the history of music I have to go back to Kurt Weill to find the equivalent


Here is an excerpt from Frank Becker´s (Musenblätter, DE) review of Sophie´s music:

“….her songs of such outstanding quality, that in the history of music once again I have to go back to Kurt Weill to find the equivalent. Sophie Dunér is ravishing vocal power, her expression gets under your skin. You will no longer get past her in the field of contemporary, jazz and chanson. Sophie Dunér moves in the highest attainable class on par with Kurt Weill, Lennon / McCartney, Gordon Sumner, Ricky Lee Jones and Kate Bush. An urgent recommendation of the Musenblätter and our award: the Musenkuß.”

Wonderful review in Cadence Magazine


Producer Bob Rusch has written about both “The City of My Soul” and “The Rain in Spain” in Cadence Magazine:

“Her CDs all have something going for them. That something is Ms. Dunér. This woman comes at you from all angles – She is a dynamic singer. She is also an excellent lyricist and composer. She also is an artist. You really ought to check out her work.”

Great Italian review in Kathodik


Another cool review of my CD in the Italian magazine Kathodik!

“An album of great sophistication with a writing style that equals (sophistication) to the results by the Brodsky Quartet in Moodswing (then in the company of the likes of Sting or Rodney Bennett, for instance).

Another great review in The Expressionist!


Read another great review of The City of My Soul in The Expressionist

“…..Sophie Dunér has brought a new edge to the music industry. A completely new and unique genre and brand of music.  A resemblance to Tim Burton´s music in his movie soundtracks.” – The Expressionist: Amanda Hayes

Fantastic review in Fanfare Magazine!


Read the fantastic review of The City of My Soul in Fanfare Magazine.

“……Overall, however, this is a stunning album, the music of which certainly opens up new and quite astonishing possibilities for other jazz vocal artists around the world to emulate and expand. Dunér’s seriousness as an artist and a musician are not to be questioned.

Review of “The City of My Soul”….


Review of “The City of My Soul”:

“……the unique pairing of jazz vocalist Sophie Dunér with The Callino Quartet is an unusual and exciting experience indeed…….an amazingly expressive voice that seems particularly well-suited for a string quartet…….a true original etc.”
