Licia Chery grew up as the daughter of two Haitians in Switzerland, where she still lives today. She began piano lessons at the age of six, composed her first songs as a teenager and now, for the first time, the Kornhaus.
Licia's heart has always beaten for soul. Even as a child, she looked to role models such as Otis Redding, Billie Holiday and Etta James. "These musicians initially looked like me and their music touched my soul," says Licia. Musically, Licia Chery has become more versatile, which you can hear in her albums. But no matter what stylistic elements she incorporates, the core remains soul. With this music, she wants to encourage everyone to "dance away the pain of life" and remind them to "treat each other well", to quote two of her song titles.
