Martina "Charly Q" Braun Wolgast age 22. This Gothenburg girl is a mix of Swedish, Austrian, African, American. She has music in her genes, her grandfather was a jazz musician and played with legends like Louis Armstrong. Martina "Charly Q" Braun Wolgast has lived in both Nice and Vienna, and released in both German and English-speaking class. It has given her the ability to adapt to new environments. She sings, sews and paints with the same desire and is interested in all aspects of artistry, from the aesthetic and the social to the business.

Mikaela Urbom is a sporty 18-year-old girl from southern Stockholm who played both football, running, tennis and dance (from ballet to street / hip hop). Above all, she has a solid background in figure skating. The 14-year-old did, however, her first love - music-upper hand. Since then she has staked everything on it. Which paid off. Her brother is a promising NHL ice hockey player, Alexander Urbom. In 2011 Mikaela left the group, leaving them to continue as a trio.

Even Melanie, age 19, grew up in a sports family - her mother played handball at an elite level, and father Jeff, who is American, played in the NBA. Melanie chose music and besides singing, she has taken piano lessons and joined a Music School. In recent years she has participated in productions of musicals and is also a talented songwriter.

18-year-old Cornelia Jakobsdotter Samuelsson is from Stockholm and grew up in a creative and somewhat Bohemian family because her parents worked in theater and music (her grandmother founded the People's Opera with her then-husband). All this has made her open to new environments and unexpected encounters. Cornelia has gone on Kulturamas Music Dramatic elementary school and is now studying singing at Rytmus Musicians Gymnasium. She actually met her future producer RedOne first time already at age four. Her father is Jakob Samuelsson of The Poodles.
