: Kristyna (Myles) isn’t interested in being seen as the next ‘cool’ thing, instead, she’s intent on producing soulful, thoughtful and powerful music that simply satisfies” Chris Long, BBC
Kristyna got her first break back in 2005 busking on the streets of Manchester, winning ‘BBC Radio Five Live Busk Idol’ along with her guitarist Ben Williams. The Manchester based songstress has since then been on tour of Europe, performed her songs on BBC 1, BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio 4 and her self-penned song ‘My Lord’ was featured on a Universal Records compilation CD ‘Songbird 2008’ with the likes of Amy Winehouse, Eva Cassidy and Erykah Badu.Performing live is where Kristyna is most comfortable. Her first public performance aged 4 in the Church choir was a sign of things to come. Kristyna has performed globally at SXSW in the states, at arenas across Europe with Chris De Burgh and has opened for Mick Hucknall, Will Young, Status Quo, Pink Martini, M People and last summer for Lemar and The Wanted at Jersey’s Big Gig in The Park. Kristyna is also an ambassador for Centrepoint, a UK based charity giving young homeless people a hope and a future. Last year Kristyna embarked on a busking tour of the UK to raise money for the charity and later met patron of Centrepoint HRH Prince William and Prince Harry. Kristyna is still on her quest to raise more funds for the charity.
The Manchester songstress released her debut single “I’m not going back” in 2012 on Decca Records receiving critical acclaim in Music Week with featured articles in The Daily Mail and The Sun. Kristyna awaits the release of her debut album produced by Grammy Award winning producer- Ken Nelson (Coldplay, Paolo Nutini, Gomez). Songs on the album span a 10 year period from one of her earliest written songs “Betrayal” at age 16 to “Make it right” some 10 years later. ‘Pinch Me Quick’ Kristyna’s debut album will be out later this year.
