After arriving in Texas' wide prairies eight years ago, California native Karyna Micaela, who earned her bachelor’s degree in jazz studies, inherited the rich troubadour spirit that is tradition in this part of the country, transforming her into a more vibrant storyteller. The result is emotional, relatable storytelling delivered by a voice that is both vulnerable and powerful, wrapped in soulful pop, indie and R&B packaging.
Hailing from the heart of Silicon Valley, California, jazz vocalist Karyna Micaela became an underground coffee shop troubadour when she moved to Dallas, Texas, accompanying her vocal chops with sultry rhodes piano. The result is emotional, relatable storytelling delivered by a voice that is both vulnerable and powerful, wrapped in soulful pop, indie and R&B packaging.
Karyna released her debut EP, Everyday Surprises in 2013, and is currently working on her first, full-length album, which tells of stories of falling head over heels in love, mending the pieces of a broken heart, and all the unexpected twists and turns in between.
To date, Karyna has toured nationally in support of her EP, and has played with her band at House of Blues Dallas, The Prophet Bar, Club Dada, Deep Ellum Arts Festival and Addison Summer Series, and has shared stages with Ernie Halter, Luke Wade, Kaela Sinclair, Paul Slavens, Alanna Royale and Kirk Thurmond & The Millennials. She has also appeared at the Granada Theater, Kessler Theater and on Good Day Fox 4 as a backup singer for Nicholas Altobelli.
