Berlin-based Swiss singer Lucia Cadotsch is one of the most creative young voices in jazz and is working with several bands of the progressive European music scene. With her trio Speak Low feat. Petter Eldh and Otis Sandsjö she announced her presence on the international scene with one of DownBeat’s Best Albums of 2017 and by winning the Echo Jazz Award for Vocalist of the Year. Together with Wanja Slavin, she runs LIUN + The Science Fiction Band – ‚synthpop for people of the day after tomorrow’. The music is the result of their continued desire to celebrate the confusion of genres and find a contemporary expression that merges the digital and inner analogue worlds. Other collaborations in her name: Lucia Cadotsch + Tricko feat. Kit Downes and Lucy Railton.
"Remember the name Lucia Cadotsch – you’re going to be hearing a lot of it!“, wrote to the British "Guardian" about the Swiss singer. Together with the Berlin based saxophonist and composer Wanja Slavin - according to SZ an artist "between genius and madness“ - she opens up a whole new chapter with LIUN + The Science Fiction Band: Urban music with dark beats, dazzling synths and pulsating hooks. Wanja Slavin's multilayered orchestral arrangements are contrasted with Lucia’s frank and translucent voice that cuts through the clutter. The result is a phantasmagorical world that mirrors our contemporary state as an absurd, but wonderful combination of natural and virtual elements.“

Speak Low 2020 - the acclaimed trio of Swiss vocalist Lucia Cadotsch - is back with their long-awaited second long-play!
Through a rare display of musical telepathy and a clockwork of ensemble work Speak Low is demonstrating how the strength of the original concept is providing a platform for further explorations. This time they’re touching a repertoire from such different musical minds as Brian Eno, Rickie Lee Jones, Luciano Berio, and Tony Williams and yet again their unmistakable sonic trio treatment makes these originals vividly alive for a new generation of listeners, as well as for veteran music lovers in search of fresh takes on these beautiful songs. While Cadotsch challenges all common vocal Jazz traditions, Sandsjö creates skeins of feathery-toned notes and Eldh deploys the combination of strength and mobility that makes him one of the most compelling of all current bassists.
