In May, Liverpool will host the 67th Eurovision Song Contest. Switzerland takes part in the contest with the song “Watergun”. The song that is now going to be performed on the big stage of the Liverpool Arena was written at the SUISA Songwriting Camp two years ago. Lyrics and music were written by SUISA member Argyle Singh, Scottish songwriter Ashley Hicklin and Polish producer and songwriter Mikolaj “Tribbs” Trybulec. The piece is sung by “The Voice of Switzerland” winner, Remo Forrer. The 21-year-old singer from Toggenburg has also recently become a SUISA member.
In the summer of 2021, the Covid-19 pandemic was just about to subside. The SUISA Songwriting Camp, organised in collaboration with Pele Loriano Productions, could take place again after a one-year break. At Powerplay Studios in Maur on Lake Greifensee, SUISA members met with renowned producers and songwriters from Switzerland and abroad. Some participants were on site, others were connected online.
