Originally hailing from Toronto, Chrystyna Marie sings with a powder keg voice over a cocktail of grungy blues and pop.
The classically trained Canadian-born singer has supported Ontario acts and been featured as a demo singer on indie labels from as young as 18 years old.Writing and releasing her own music, with her own unique voice, however, is where her true passion lies.Believing the classics are just as essential as modern favorites, she finds musical inspiration in everyone from Janis Joplin, Ottis Reddingand Etta James to Selena and Christina Aguilera.Although Chrystyna has been represented by several independent labels over the years, she decided that in order to shape the sound she wanted, releasing music on her own was absolutely necessary.Her first solo single, “Loaded Gun”, is proof that this was the right choice, revealing the first taste of Chrystyna’s gritty take on the blues.Having since released the album LIFE, Chrystyna is expanding her horizons and experimenting with new elements. New music is in the works for a third release, which she goes back to her roots with an added flare of surprise.Chrystyna says “Breath is life, and life is music. I wanted to create music from personal experiences and true emotions.Something the everyday person can relate to and build strength from having been exposed to it. With a raw and gritty feel to emulate these experiences and emotions”.
