"As a composer, lyricist & vocalist we pretty much have to acknowledge that Sophie is a genuine triple threat."
- Slim & Michael Coyle, Cadence Magazine, New York , USA
"Sophie Dunér is a unique artist, a profoundly individual composer and a stunning singer."
- Michael Haas, award winning producer of Sophie´s new album
The City of Dizzy is available on CD Baby…
The Art Music Lounge: – “This album is a killer. Nearly every track comes at you like an assault of rhythm in which the twists and turns of the music keep you on the edge of your seat. Improvising like a jazz horn. Many such singers have claimed this distinction, but only a handful, Dunér, Mark Murphy & Anita O’Day among them, have ever really achieved this. There’s an elemental, animal excitement in everything Dunér sings that grabs you by the throat & pulls you out of complacency.” PURCHASE HERE

The City of Dizzy – Coming up NEXT!
`The City of My Soul´ in `Hora de Salida´ at `La Tortuga´, Madrid
Music from `The City of My Soul´ [produced by Michael Haas, released on PARMA recordings] is again being featured during the theatre play `Hora de Salida´ (written by Jonuel Pozo, directed by Alejandro Arroyo). The show goes on every Friday during May at `La Tortuga´ in Madrid.
From Baroque to Bop and Beyond
Two excerpts [about Sophies CD `The City of My Soul´] from the publication `From Baroque to Bop and Beyond´:
– “We begin with Kairo – there are less notes here than in any single bar of Gershwin’s An American in Paris, but it is infinitely richer in content and better music.”
– “Sophie Dunér has here provided a matrix for jazz-classical vocal writing in the new millennium, a means of presenting the singing voice in a context that could work within a jazz oratorio or opera.”
Sophie´s CD The City of My Soul is featured and discussed in the new online book From Baroque to Bop and Beyond , chapter 18, page 423 – 426 (in the journal The Art Music Lounge) by Lynn René Bayley.
`The City of Dizzy´ coming up during spring 2016!
Sophie recorded a new CD last year together with the Boston based cellist Jeremy Harman. `The City of Dizzy´ is to be released during spring 2016!
