Thierry Condor is a singer with a very distinctive voice. In the nineties, he became known to a wider audience through his TV performances. As a studio musician, the Swiss artist with Italian roots is part of many international productions on a regular basis. His latest solo album “Stuff Like That” was released in 2013.
The cross-cultural love story between Thierry’s Italian-German parents started in the French-speaking part of Switzerland and is reflected in the artist’s name: Thierry Condor is actually not an alias, but his birth name. The singers’ musical talent is a family heritage as well: His granddad loved to sing along to the arias played on the radio, and his father played the guitar in various combos.
Thierry started performing as a singer in preschool. Later, he taught himself to play the guitar, drums and the saxophone and started practicing on an old piano he had singlehandedly restored. The great Italian Cantautori and The Beatles were his constant companions, and it was through them he developed a special liking for songs whose lyrics tell a story.
During several extended stays in the US, Thierry became a fan of West Coast Pop, R&B, and Jazz. He studied singing in Chicago, and when he returned to Switzerland, he continued his musical education at the Jazz School Lucerne. His trademarks are his distinctive tenor voice and his stylistic confidence regarding vocal interpretation.
Thierry has become familiar to a wider audience through his performances on European TV channels, such as SRF, ZDF, and SAT 1, with his band, “The Lion5,” as well as a duet with Sandra Studer. As a studio musician, he is part of many international productions and has worked with artists like DJ Bobo, Nubya, and Ruth Mixter, among many others. Thierry’s latest solo album, Stuff Like That, was released in 2013 and was well-received by radio stations both in Europe and overseas.
Thierry Condor is married, a father of four, and lives with his family in Switzerland.
