MELYZ, a singer-songwriter of Mauritian origin, was born in Geneva, Switzerland.
Growing up in a multi-lingual family, it has influenced the way she writes, composes and sings.
Surrounded by music all her life, she started performing on stage at the age of 7.
At the age of 13 she entered a performing art school in Nyon, Switzerland (Les Ateliers du Funambule).
In 2010 she moved to the UK to study music and attended two different music universities- ACM (Academy of Contemporary Music) and BIMM (Brighton Institute of Modern Music).
Straight after her graduation, things started picking up: she was chosen to represent Switzerland in the Eurovision Song Contest in 2015, under her real name - Mélanie René - with one of her own composition (Time To Shine).
After taking part in many Eurovision-related events throughout Europe for more than a year, Melyz felt the need to focus on a more authentic and personal music project, and developed a Pop Electro vibe.
Her inspirations are artists such as MØ, Banks or even Dua Lipa (to name but a few).
Her first single "Dancefloor" was released in March 2018, which she co-composed with Phil Braithwaite. It was recorded and produced at Kitchen Studio in Geneva, by Stephane Chapelle and Eric Anderson.
This first single will be featured on her debut EP, which will be released in January 2019.
