This voice is breaking down time and boundaries. Joya Marleen, who is only 18 years old, surprises with incredible warmth and depth. She grew up in St. Gallen, Switzerland, and started songwriting when she was 12 years old. “I’ve always written songs, long before I knew something about verses, bridges or a chorus.” The young artist fascinates live with her strong charisma and her way of telling stories. With her energetic and cheeky nature she inspires with her freshness. The moment when the audience and the music merge, when tomorrow's shopping lists and yesterday's unpaid bills are forgotten. When only the now counts. “I make music for this moment,” says Joya Marleen. "Nightmare" has been an airplay sensation in her native Switzerland, reaching the number 1 position on Swiss Airplay Charts only 20 weeks after its release.
