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.
Chrystyna has taken first place in various categories in the Kiwanis Music Festival 2 years in a row. She’s taken lead roles in local community plays; West Side Story as Maria and Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz. Over the years, she has racked up a long list of smaller roles in music videos, television and was also the lead singer in an LA founded pop group called Greencat. 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 Redding and 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.
Chrystyna says about her music, ” 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.”
Her first solo single, “Loaded Gun”, is proof that this was the right choice, revealing the first taste of Marie’s gritty take on the blues.
With the world in a current state of quarantine, lockdown and uncertainty due to the recent COVID-19 pandemic, positivity for our global community seems to be in short supply.

And in the wake of the virus’ stronghold on a day to day activities as well as the global economy, music venues have closed, concerts cancelled and tours postponed possibly until 2021. But the soundtrack of our lives continues to play a group of musical artists have come together to write and record an all-new, original song to bring both music and hope back to the forefront while raising some much-needed awareness for and thanks to those who have been working countless hours to keep our world healthy and well.

We are two-person (for now), female-fronted, indie rock band. Based in Pittsburgh, PA, we’ve been waiting a long time to get to this point. For years,
we’ve dreamed of recording our music, so we could share it. Finally, the
advances in technology that allow at-home studios to record and produce
professional-grade music have made this possible. “What happens to a dream
deferred?” Sometimes the dream is realized!
With an eclectic list of dozens of songs written over the years, our challenge is to
record, mix, master and produce a song a month until all the songs are released.
Our first album has fourteen diverse songs to kick off our journey.
Many more on the way…
