2016 was a turbulent year for Swiss Folk Metal titans Eluveitie as the act lost three key members: drummer Merlin Sutter, guitarist Ivo Henzi, and hurdy-gurdist and co-vocalist Anna Murphy, all in one summer. These three musicians then decided to start their own band, christening it after Anna's solo album, Cellar Darling.

Dubbing their sound "new wave of folk rock", Cellar Darling pulls back on their old band's heavier sound and channels their energy on storytelling, incorporating Progressive Rock elements into their music. Their debut This Is the Sound was released in 2017 to widespread acclaim. The Spell, a Doom Metal-infused concept album, followed two years later.


  • Anna Murphy - vocals, hurdy-gurdy, flute, synths (2016-)
  • Ivo Henzi - guitars, bass (2016-)
  • Merlin Sutter - drums (2016-)
