EX-BUSKER KRYSTINA MYLES HOPES TO RAISE £250K+ FOR CHARITY
Krystina Myles is not your average musician. She's a young, extraordinarily gifted singer song-writer who got her start playing on the streets of musically celebrated Manchester, slowly but steadily building a repertoire of original material and an avid fan base to go with it. She finally caught the attention of Decca/Universal after being named Busker Of The Year on BBC Radio 5 Live and having long ago committed herself to using her music as a vehicle for positive change, after being signed, Myles decided to take the unusual step of returning to the streets to help raise what she hopes will be in excess of £250,000 for Centrepoint by travelling over 10,000 miles busking.
Her decision to support Centrepoint comes from her years of not just seeing homelessness first hand but also after meeting the Congolese orphan and another young musician, Tresor Kiambu (Tres B) at a Centrepoint hostel in Westminster. In addition to her street fundraising Kristyna will be asking major pop and rock bands to allow her one song at forthcoming stadium and arena venues where the public will be asked to donate to Centrepoint via an array of different methods ranging from the traditional bucket collection to the more innovative phone text and cutting edge QR codes.
Highlighting her uniquely soulful voice and affinity for song-writing, 'I'm Not Going Back' - due for release on the 18th June - is the first single from her highly anticipated self-written debut album, 'Pinch Me Quick', which was recorded at Abbey Road and produced by internationally acclaimed, multi-award winning producer Ken Nelson (Coldplay, Badly Drawn Boy, Paolo Nutini). Kristyna will shortly be embarking on a UK tour and will be making an appearance at a number of festivals. All upcoming dates are:
Tuesday 22nd May - London Malmaison
Wednesday 23rd May - Reading Malmaison
Wednesday 30th May - Liverpool Malmaison
Wednesday 6th June - Leeds Malmaison
15/16/24 June - Hampton Court Palace Music Festival
Thursday 28th June - Hop Farm Festival
