Where most typical artist biographies open with a name, followed by a firm, fixed geographical location, when writing about Amelie Tobien, we have a problem. Amelie may well have been born and raised in the mountainous climes of Salzburg, educated in the wine regions of Bordeaux, and found her voice after closing time within the whiskey soaked bars of Dublin. But the truth is, for Amelie, home isn’t where she’s been, or even where she’s headed. It’s where she is right now.
Across her sparse, brittle arrangements, Tobien’s voice is laid bare, emotive, deep and haunting, telling truths that bring hairs to rise and leave spines shuddering. While natively a German speaker, Amelie’s creative mother tongue is English, which she uses poetically to once again cross the threshold of geography, and share her stories with her friends and chosen family from across the world.
