What is your name?
What is your genre of music?
I don’t like to give my genre a name because i feel like that can be restricting 😀
Give us a little bio about you.
With beautiful melodies and a strikingly intoxicating sound, 18 year old Slovakian wunderkind Karin Ann is already making a name for herself. After experiencing the worlds of fine arts and sports, she eventually found her calling in the world of music. Influenced by musicals, TV soundtracks and bands such as Queen, she collaborated with a UK-based producer on her first songs by the age of 15, and eventually caught the eye of renowned songwriter and producer Tomi Popovič, who took her through the process of creating her upcoming EP. Karin Ann’s sound is both vibey and atmospheric, with a perfect balance of abstract & tangible, and is sung completely in English. “I feel more at home when I’m writing songs in English,” she admits. She describes her music as “alternative trap” and touches a wide range of subjects, such as gender equality (“babyboy”), live and love toxicity (“3AM”) or mental health (“I yearn for agony”). All the songs on the upcoming EP were mixed by world-renowned Matt Schwartz (Yungblud, Massive Attack). Above all, Karin Ann hopes to bring a message with both her platform and her music. “I want to be regarded as more than just a singer”, she adds, “because there are so many issues that need to be spoken about and singers are always told to just sing.” The real highlight, however, will come once Karin Ann performs her EP live for her fans.
