Cellar Darling is a 3-piece band from Winterthur and Lucerne, Switzerland founded in 2016. The group was formed by Anna Murphy (vocals, hurdy-gurdy), Merlin Sutter (drums) and Ivo Henzi (guitars & bass). The trio has previously been part of the core of the Swiss metal band Eluveitie.
On 6 June 2016, former Eluveitie band members Anna Murphy, Ivo Henzi and Merlin Sutter founded the band following their split from their previous band Eluveitie. On 23 September 2016 they launched a single called "Challenge" along with the b-side track "Fire, Wind & Earth". The single was self released and the video was created and directed by the band themselves. Cellar Darling played their first ever shows soon after, in December 2016 supporting Amorphis in Zurich, Switzerland and The Gentle Storm in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
