Today’s spotlight we’re placing on an artist from our very own hometown and a regular office favourite here at The Music Site going way back to his 2014 EP ‘The Purple Experiment’.
Introducing Singer/Songwriter Kyan from Cambridge, UK. With his silky smooth soulful voice and effortless delivery, Kyan is a sound choice for the spotlight.

On The B Side…
Kyan’s also planning to release a visual mixtape titled ‘Nothing Beyond’ through the help of his fans, so if your up for supporting great music be sure to check it out.
“I decided I wanted to release this project independently, so I could keep the music as pure as possible and release it in exactly the way it was intended to be…And that’s what brought me to Kickstarter!”
After pouring every inch of my heart into my new collection of songs “Nothing Beyond”, I’d love to be able to finish them off and finally release them…I believe I can do it with your help:)!
Last year I found myself in a very dark place after my long term relationship and major record deal came to an end. I pretty much ran away to LA, and started writing songs in Airbnb’s to try and find myself and my music again. It sounds cliche to say, but I literally don’t know what I would’ve done without music during that period, it allowed me to channel all of that darkness into something positive, which was what kept me going. The rawness of the lyrics and the sonic landscape that developed around them made for my most honest song writing to date, and started to form the collection of songs ‘Nothing Beyond.’
I decided I wanted to release this project independently, so I could keep the music as pure as possible and release it in exactly the way it was intended to be…And that’s what brought me to Kickstarter!
It’s amazing that the people who enjoy my music can essentially become “my label” and be a part of making the project come to life!
You can read more and support his Kickstarter campaign here.
If you happen to be mingling around the Cambridge area tomorrow afternoon you can catch Kyan in the flesh live at The Portland Arms (free entry so no excuses!). More details on this Here.
