Black Cat's Smoking



Born in 1991 as a daughter of a Rock guitarist and a ballet dancer I grew up with music. Especially with the sound of Queen, Deep Purple, TOTO and Uriah Heep. I started playing piano as a kid and sang as soon as music filled up the room.
I saw Deep Purple live in the early 2000's and they blew my mind. They were the reason that I first picked up the bass and then started to play the guitar. Steve Morse and Steve Lukather were (and still are) my absolute heroes. In 2014 I started studying music in Winterthur. This was a whole new world for me, I started playing and listening more Jazz and Fusion stuff, but never forgot my earliest influences. I finished my masters program on the electric guitar in January 2020.
I was the lead singer and guitar player from "To Be Addicted" from 2014 - 2019. And since November 2018 I'm the vocalist, guitarist and booker / manager of "Black Cat's Smoking". We released our first EP in April 2019 and played over 50 shows in our first year. In 2020 we focused on writing new songs and hope to get back on stage as soon as possible.

Besides music I love everything with cats, bulldogs and unicorns.

The road goes on forever ...
