Swiss singer-songwriter Nicolas Nadar first started his career in 2006 as Fauve. Hailed by the press, embraced by the French magazine Les Inrocks, his first, self-titled album got him invited to perform in many clubs and festivals in Switzerland and France, as well as the Montreux Jazz Festival in 2007, with Raphelson, Sophie Hunger, John Parish and The Lausanne Sinfonietta.
In 2012, Fauve released Clocks’n’Clouds, a darker, electronic-tinged album that also got him very positive reviews, both in Switzerland and abroad. In 2015, he changed his stage name to Nicolas Nadar and composed the soundtrack to the TV series Anomalia (directed by Pierre Monnard), broadcast on RTS 1 and France 5. In 2016-18, Nicolas Nadar wrote the music of several documentary films and started his work on the musical and cinematographic project Sleeper Hits : Tropical Abstractions.
