Canadian-born blues/pop songwriter and vocalist Chrystyna Marie is proof that the music industry isn’t always the easiest career path. Even after being represented by several labels, she decided to go solo in order to put out the kind of music that she wanted, not the music that people thought would sell.
According to Chrystyna, “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”.
Some of her musical inspirations are Janis Joplin, Ottis Redding, Etta James, Selena, and Christina Aguilera, just to name a few.
Now with her first solo single titled, “Loaded Gun”, Chrystyna feels like she has made the right choice by following her heart, and we agree with that. Check out the grungy blues/pop song below.
