Heidi Happy

is a Swiss pop musician, who started her solo career in 2005. It didn’t take long until she got the critics’ attention and after some minor success abroad, the most credible band ever to emerge from Switzerland, Yello, asked her to sing on their new single «Toch». Heidi Happy lives now in Amsterdam.

Which song do you listen to when...
you take a bubble bath?
Frank Sinatra - Strangers In The Night
