a story that changed our lives.
IT ALL STARTED WITH
an endless passion for music, for discovery, for people, for life.
A pop-rock duo of guitar and voice, Timekey was formed at the end of 2016 when Eric and Luis met at the École des musiques actuelles (ETM) for professional musicians in Geneva. In two weeks, Eric and Luis had to prepare a 90-minute musical repertoire for a concert… which was cancelled at the last minute! Instead of giving up, they had a drink and embarked on a journey through language and time, eager to continue incorporating covers in their repertoire. Since their first concert – an improvised duo – they have started to find their niche in the Geneva music scene.
Timekey’s repertoire includes songs by Ray Charles, Bill Withers, George Michael, Gérald de Palmas, Mecano, Prince, John Mayer, Oasis, Gnarls Barkley, Adele, Amy Winehouse, Sam Smith and Sia, among other artists. Thanks to Luis’s charisma and Eric’s instrumental mastery, Timekey delivers an intimate version of international pop songs of recent decades.
