CHARLYN, a Swiss pop artist, has had a passion for music since she was a child. Although she grew up in the French-speaking part of Switzerland, English music has always been her favorite. At the age of twenty, she decided to pursue her dream and moved to London to study music. There, she was introduced to new genres which have had a big influence on her songwriting.
CHARLYN's music fits within Alt Z and Indie Pop genres with a distinctive 80s' touch. In 2016, she released her first EP 'CHARLYN', which caught the attention of Swiss Radio stations and her single 'Marylise' is still regularly broadcast on Radio Swiss Pop. In 2019, CHARLYN released her second EP entitled 'Water', with its single 'Remembering You' also being broadcast on Swiss radios such as Radio Swiss Pop, LFM, RNV, Radio Lac, Rhône FM and RJB. She has played renowned venues nationally and internationally such as Bush Hall (London), The 02 Forum (Kentish Town), Nambucca (London), The Good Ship (London), Fête de la musique (Yverdon), La Braderie (Porrentruy), Montreux Jazz Festival and many more.
Due to the pandemic in 2020 CHARLYN returned to Switzerland and started working with her brother Loric Mathez on a new project. This will culminate in the release of her EP 'Start With Me' in 2023 preceded by several singles. The first one is scheduled for January 2023 and promises to be an eclectic mix of pop and indie sounds that will refresh the Swiss Pop scene!
