Attention high voltage! How many female artists do you know who were electrocuted by 15000 volts and survived? As of now, at least one: Evelinn Trouble, singer, songwriter, producer and visual artist. Trouble's work deals with the tangled and complex reality of human existence. Critics have described her as the love child of Thom Yorke and Patti Smith. The description hits the mark, as Trouble's music combines stylistic innovation with a raw, rebellious energy.
Evelinn Trouble was born in Zurich into a household full of music; her mother is a professional jazz singer and vocal coach. Seeking the untamed freedom that the jazz of her childhood exuded, Trouble dove head first into the local squatter scene as a teenager. It was there in the underground, this non-commercial space, that she self-taught her craft and began to define the parameters of her art figure. She gained her first stage experience in loud, brute industrial rock bands, putting her vocal organ to the acid test gig after gig - until the solo project Evelinn Trouble was ready to take on the world. In less than a decade, Evelinn Trouble has recorded five albums as well as three EPs, and as her own producer, has created a sonic universe of dark poetry and breathtaking beauty.
Evelinn Trouble's persona combines opposites; she has sung opera on international theatrical stages while fronting a Black Sabbath tribute band (when her busy touring schedule allows). No two releases in her catalog sound alike, as she has an innate drive to constantly reinvent herself and push into new realms with her music. This also manifests itself in a geographical sense: Evelinn Trouble has lived in New York, London and Berlin, with each city leaving a distinct imprint on her work. Currently she lives in Zurich. With 15000 volts more in her body than any other artist.
