Ever since she can remember, Cheryl Balzan has had a passion for music, specifically, the guitar. She started playing aged eight and carried on studying classical and contemporary guitar.

 

At seventeen, Cheryl began to perform in several pubs and hotels, singing and playing cover songs. Cheryl has also participated in a number of local music events including The Farsons Beer Festival and Rockestra (2014, 2017), and Teatru Unplugged (2017). Cheryl also works with Christian Tanti, a young, talented guitar player and songwriter. They recently released their first original song, Sweet Sister, followed by Room Full of Tears and Calling Out My Name. The duo is currently working on an upcoming album inspired by funk and ska artists such as Stevie Wonder and Amy Winehouse. On the first night of the festival they will perform songs from their upcoming album.
