Dylem is a Swiss melodic rock/hard rock band founded by Melody Dylem (vocals – songwriter) and Donovan (keyboardist – composer).
Before their meeting, Melody Dylem had become known through the Little Dreams Foundation where she will have the opportunity to sing a duet with singer Phil Collins (Genesis). Donovan had meanwhile played with several bands of different styles in Switzerland, in particular with the American singer Eric St. Michaels (China).
When they met, Melody Dylem and Donovan will first play together piano-vocal covers of hard rock standards which they perform live. Gradually the idea of creating their own songs emerged. The duet started to record demos in their home studio. Meanwhile, Melody Dylem became lead singer / songwriter in a symphonic metal band.
At the end of 2014, Dylem gathered among its compositions 9 songs of melodic rock/hard rock containing also progressive parts for its first self titled album “Dylem”. In early 2015, the members of Dylem worked with studio musicians to record the first single “Walk Away”. A music video of the single was realized, which will be broadcast on several Swiss channels. The band recorded a second title at the same time, in French, “Pluie de Cristal”.
In the summer of 2015, Dylem decided to surround itself with permanent musicians to record the other songs of the album at Studio 52.9 in Lausanne. Dylem signed for this first album with the label 7Hard in Germany and will have the opportunity to collaborate for the artwork with the designer Hugh Syme (Dream Theater, Rush, Whitesnake).
