Ysan Roche was born on 24th of March, 1985. Growing up in a doctor’s family, she moved around frequently while she was younger because of their business so she became used to a nomadic life. When she was about three years old she heard a song of ABBA in the radio and asked her mother what kind of profession the girls in the band had. Her mother explained to her that these are singers, to which she responded, “this is exactly what I’m gonna do when I grow up.”
Ysan Roche experienced a lot of different lifestyles while she was young, moving about with her parents because of their profession. She spent her time with punks, goths, and the houseclubscene in ffm. At the same time, she took piano and guitar lessons very early and sang in choir for a few years before she began vocal lessons. It was her mission to combine art, music and a message. In Germany she couldn’t find the energy she needed for her music so she decided to visit New York to find the right place to grow her mind and opportunities, and has since decided to reside here permanently.
