Mona Roukachi, and even to Enya-esque reminders with Kristell Lowagie. Due to this varied pallet in both music and lyrics, the band fits well on different stages: from main-stream pop, rock and electronic festivals, as well as more gothic, EBM and experimental oriented shows. Track record… Formed in 2003, but mainly focusing on experimenting and playing live shows, the band really took form in 2007 when they released their first album “Creationism”. Shortly after that release Psy’Aviah was signed to “Alfa Matrix” records and with them they released the albums “Entertainment Industries” (2008), “Eclectric” / “Eclectricism (2CD Limited Edition)” (2010), “Into The Game DJEP” featuring Ayria (2011), “Introspection ~ Extrospection” / “Restrospection” (2CD Limited Edition)” (2011), “Contraspection” (Digital Only Release) (2011) and “OK / Virtual Gods DJEP” (2012) with remixes by Jan Vervloet, M.I.K.E., Radical G, NUDE, and more… Renewing their contract in 2012 the band worked on releasing the concept (mini)-album "Future Past" (2013) and a single/remix EP "Our Common Future ft. Kyoko Baertsoen" (2014) to mark the new "Era" of Psy'Aviah: collaborating once again with a lot of new artists to bring variety in the vocal palette.
At the moment Psy'Aviah is working on a new full length album. Members The band was initially founded in 2003 by producer and composer Yves Schelpe. In 2007 he was joined by vocalist Emélie Nicolaï and guitarists Kristof De Clerck (2007-2011) and Ben Van de Cruys (2011-...). From 2013 on with the album "The Xenogamous Endeavour" the project moved away from a tradition line-up, and Yves focused back on inviting guest vocalists and musicians on the songs, thus returning back to the roots.
