INFO

Cherry Sunkist started her solo music career in 2003 when she was already active in the field of video art. She produces with laptop, drum computers, synthesizers, E-guitar and her voice. She released her debut OK Universe in 2007, followed by a self-titled EP in 2010 and her second album Projection Screens on the queer/feminist label „comfortzone“. Her pieces have been released on various Samplers (e.g. FM4 Soundselection, Chicks on Speed Records-Sampler Girl Monster or chra: “Ghost – Remixes”/Editions Mego). She produces for performance & theater pieces and her own video works.

Cherry Sunkist creates her very own, incomparable version of experimental pop-music out of a vast variety of styles and musical elements, that, because of their avant-garde nature, are never in danger of getting stuck in the superficial. Her multifaceted pieces move freely between New Wave, sound collages and catchy partly punk-inspired vocals.
