Wintershome is a pop folk group composed of six young musicians from Zermatt, in Switzerland. Inspired by nature and mountains, they mix piano, guitars, drums and their voices.
They are children of the snow. Wintershome belong as intimately to winter as a fisherman does to his trawler. The group inhabit the snowy season, like a boat bobbing about on the ocean. With them, you can feel the biting wind and look up at the watery sky stretching to the horizon.
Wintershome have known each other since their first halting steps on skis. They are not a group, nor simply a bunch of youngsters. Their relationship is much subtler than that. There is something of the clan about them. They are a siblinghood, come down from the mountains to speak to us about Nature, to lift us out of the bleakness of the world with voices that shine like the sun's rays glinting off a mountain brook.
Wintershome is a house where everyone, from the cellar to the attic, contributes their part, drawn from the rude bounty of the world. And they take all this and simmer it in the pot bubbling on the family hearth to create their songs, a blend of sadness, intensity, beauty and hope. And the crowd go home with a little hoard of fresh melodies picked from the mountainside like a dose of dewdrops gathered at dawn on a summer's day. Wintershome were born of the snow. And through them, winter has become a season of warmth and light.
In 2019 Wintershome sponsors Mécénat Chirurgie Cardiaque’s project with TWISPER. They would also like to support “Mary’s Meals Switzerland”, a charity who strives to provide one good meal to some of the poorest children every school day. TWISPER will contact them to organize a project.
