Anouchka Gwen (*1997) is a swiss born and raised singer-songwriter and bassist currently based in Basel, Switzerland. Starting in a Band as a singer and bass player in 2017, Anouchka Gwen developed her passion for songwriting and storytelling as a solo artist. With her first EP „Growth“ released in 2019, she made herself visible in the Basel music scene.
„Melancholic, romantic, and maybe a little critical." This is how Anouchka Gwen describes her music. In her latest released album "Utopia" (2022), she deals with acceptance, representation and awareness.
Currently working on a new EP that will be released in October 2023 (exact date tba), love and all its shades, vulnerability and honest intentions are her main inspirations. Her two latest released singles "Affirmations" and "Slow" already give a sweet pretaste of her new project.
With her dreamy and bassy voice she aims to heal and bring the listeners along in this journey, where everybody can relate. As an artist with Congolese roots, she’s influenced and inspired by repetitive, soulful and rhythmic melodies and mixes it with her love for electronic psychedelic wide pop infused soundscapes.
