Kyrstyn is a Portland based songwriter and producer—a multitalented performance artist creating live shows that blend piano, voice, electronics, and impromptu loops from audience participation.
Her sound blends intricate song-writing with luscious vocal harmonies and vast hard-hitting electro-acoustic soundscapes. Imagine a meld of Imogen Heap, Florence & the Machine, and Joanna Newsom, backed by Air, Plaid, Dead Can Dance, and Apparat. It’s a bit like that. She recently released her first full-length album EMBYRS, and more is on the way.
She has worked with many artists including Auditory Canvas, Lynx, Rena Jones, Lila Rose, Govinda, Kaminanda, Beats Antique, & Akara. Some of her past performance venues include Glade (UK), Lightning in a Bottle, Cafe Du Nord, Fox Theater (Oakland), & the Crystal Ballroom (Portland).
