Hong Kong-based singer-songwriter-producer cehryl has a voice as dulce and mellifluous as the songs she produces and writes to. Stories that explore the complexity of human emotion fill her dreamy, genre-fusing tracks, where her lyrical flair and classical training are on full display. From the strings she rips to the production, recording, and mixing, cehryl orchestrates every part of her songs. “I realized people don’t expect women to be producers and I hated that,” she admits, touching on her experience as an undergrad at Berklee College of Music, and the years that followed in Los Angeles where she worked in studios as an engineer whilst cultivating her own artistry. In high school, she moved to Cheltenham in the UK from Hong Kong, where she began writing her own songs, drawing inspiration from a blend of R&B, punk and indie pop folk. Since her first release in 2016, the intoxicating, emotive vignette Delusions, cehryl released a slew of singles and projects leading up to 2019’s acclaimed Slow Motion. She credits her close community of friends and fellow artists like Soft Glas, Maddie Jay, Alex Szotak, Zack Villere, Mulherin, and Gitai and their eclectic music tastes as foundational to her own, ever-evolving sonic palette. cehryl’s music is a natural extension of her wide-ranging compass, from jazz to electronic, folk and pop. The aptly titled time machine is a sweet, and timeless dreamworld that finds cehryl unearthing and rebirthing her musical foundations to conjure her truest voice.
