In the November edition, the very specialized Jazztime magazine publishes a full article about Amaury Faivre Duo.
"No-frilled, very improvised and great charisma
Amaury Faivre and Yves Staubitz won Swiss Blues Challenge this year in Basel. Their music is influenced by blues, jazz and folk. And their desire for improvisation.
Playing harmonica opened him the door for the world and the blues. At 8, he blows his father's harmonica for the first time. Ever since this little instrument followed him everywhere - as long as the blues pioneers he discovers, like Robert Johnson, Mississippi Fred McDowell, Lightning Hopkins or John Lee Hooker. One of his great success has been the Prix du Public at the Jeunesses Musicales de France Challenge in 2001 with the duo White and Blues with Sylvain Dubrez. Then Amaury Faivre started gigging with bands like Chris Demolition Blues, Bluesingale, Alfred Massaï or the Soul'd Out Trio." (...)
Le duo sera dans les studios de France Bleu Besançon aujourd'hui pour évoquer sa victoire au Swiss Blues Challenge et ses projets discographiques, dans l'émission ça vaut le détour, animée du lundi au vendredi à 17h par Marie-Ange Pinelli et Thierry Emme.
The duo has its first TV appearance on the Swiss channel Lancy TV, which publishes a reportage, about the Swiss Blues Challenge and to announce the Rock & Dusty Festival which will be on Oct. 13th at the villa Tachini in Geneva.
After a beautiful final round, Amaury Faivre Duo was attributed the Swiss Blues Challenge victory on Friday Jun. 30th, 2017 in Basel, which gives them a ticket for representing Switzerland during the European Blues Challenge (Norway) and the International Blues Challenge (Memphis) ! The bands who disputed the final were Manu Hartmann and the City Blues Band who will win the challenge the year after, Dominic Schoemaker, and at last Estella Benedetti & Michael G Band.
