Born and raised in Geneva, Switzerland ANAHIDE is a swiss-hispano-armenian 26 year-old singer, songwriter, arranger, composer and producer. She graduated from the Berklee College of Music in December 2017 with a Bachelor in Contemporary Writing and Production and a minor in Musical Theater Writing.
She grew up listening to French classics and jazz standards in her grand father's car and fell in love instantly. Her earliest memories of singing would be to every single Disney song and to the French musical Romeo et Juliette, which marked the beginning of her love for musical theater. Next to her love for music was her love for sports, in particular ice-skating, which she practiced for over 10 years. She was always fascinated by the interaction between music, words, movements and images and the emotional response to it. She always wanted to be a musician to convey that emotion.
In 2014, she moved to Boston to study at the Berklee College of Music. While at Berklee, she realized she had a particular interest in songwriting and film scoring. She spent a semester in Valencia, Spain and had a chance to reconnect with her Spanish roots. She loves traveling and incorporating elements from different cultures into her own music.
She moved to Los Angeles in February 2018 to pursue a career writing music for TV and Film as well as a performer. She started performing with her own band in July 2018 and released her debut single, "Even If" on October 2018. She moved back to Europe in April 2019 and she's performed in Spain, Switzerland and France.
In January 2020, she moved to Paris, where she's been working as a production assistant for Universal Music Production since.
ANAHIDE's music is inspired by her multicultural background. Accompanied by her ukulele, on the piano, or more recently guitar, she performs her indie pop/folk with a hispanic flavor compositions and adds her own twist to Spanish and French songs of her childhood.
She is currently working on her debut EP, which is set to release this year.
