Musician and singer, Bitty Page was a talent on the Voice of Switzerland TV show in 2014 as well as member of Orianne and Phil Collins' "Little Dreams Foundation". Bitty delivers sets which swing between Jazz Standards and Easy Listening with her solo project.
With her performances including only her doublebass and her voice,
Bitty Page has already appeared on stage on various occasions,
ranging from the famous "Montreux Jazz Festival" to
various Gala evenings. She has sung with Phil Collins, a duet with
Youssou N'Dour and has shared the stage with Jermaine Jackson,
Bryan Adams, Arielle Dombasles, The Suga Babes, the late Natalie
Cole, and many others, as one can partly see on her YouTube page.
Born in the UK, raised in Switzerland, living in Denmark, Beatrice Ambrosi de Magistris Verzier is a student in Software Design when she is not on stage performing. She started to learn how to play the doublebass on her own in 2010, after having studied classical piano for almost 10 years in the Conservatoire de Musique de Montreux, and isn't done learning yet!
Although voice and doublebass alone is an unusual combination, the public demand has (fortunately) not yet ceased.
A few words from the greatly missed Claude Nobs
(A Small World Newsletter, 2011):
"[…]Also on the menu? A spicy burlesque show by Swiss performer Zoe Scarlett and music by the Little Dreams Band, a group created by Phil Collins as part of his Little Dreams Foundation to provide opportunities for talented children. The show stealer, for those keeping score at home, was the half-Gambian, half-Italian 17-year-old Beatrice Verzier. "I can tell you, she is very, very good," said Claude Nobs, CEO and founder of the Montreux Jazz Festival, who was heading to LA to stay with his old friend Quincy Jones. "And the last time I was sitting in this room, twenty years ago, I was watching Ella Fitzgerald," he reminisced."
