[ABOUT K-SYRAN]

Your voice expresses your heart – share it, sing it, shout it.

K-Syran also known as Katrina Syran is an actor singer songwriter trained at  RADA & Guildhall School of Music & Drama. Her international pop career started 3 years ago with K-Syran opening the UK Tour with Blue. And the release of her album; Smoke In My Veins, with Metropolis Studios.

 

Followed up with a duo with Sugababes sexbomb, Amelle Barrabah , Testify.

K-Syran has always had a passion for creativity. Even as a child, visionary ideas drove her, and at every stage of her life, being artistic has played an important role.  Her father, a professional drummer and multi-instrumentalist, always encouraged her to sing whenever, and wherever, she could, her stunning soprano attracting immediate attention. It wasn’t long before K-Syran was cast as the lead of every school play. 

Her voice carried her places she never thought she’d go, becoming the lead vocalist for many up and coming acts around Europe, including a jazz group in Montreaux, a rock group in Geneva and a UK tour with pop band Blue, who had three number one albums in Europe.

Not able to satisfy her creativity with only music, K-Syran is also a Director, a contributing writer to Huffington Post and an actress, having appeared in Voyage in the Dark at the Young Vic in London and the film “Don’t Miss the Cup” with Tasmin Grieg.  As a playwright, she was nominated for “Best Play” at the Global Summit to End Sexual Violence In Conflict with Breaking the Silence. In March, 2016, K-Syran was honored to perform her song, “Intimacy,” on International Women’s Day live from Yamaha Music London. The track, off her acclaimed debut Smoke in my Veins (2015), celebrates womanhood and serves as a ‘call to arms’ for women to celebrate their femininity, sexuality and beauty regardless of their age. The song was nominated for “Best Anthem for Women’s Day” by the United Nations UK.

At the time she said,

“The power and joy of song has the ability to comfort and inspire each individual, whatever their situation may be, which is why I’ve given my song ‘Intimacy’ as a gift to every woman.”

Writing lyrics, and using it to express her feelings, is something that K-Syran tries to do daily. “I write lyrics everyday. I could become inspired by a quote, an image, a smell, a feeling… melodies will suddenly pop into my head and I will record them on my phone. When I work in the studio, I’ll bring my lyrics with me and start to improvise. From there, I pick out the best of the improvs and record them.”

Which brings us to “Dizzy”

“I was originally inspired to write “Dizzy” because I had read something about panic attacks. I have a friend who gets them badly, and I wanted to know how and why they happen. After reading, it began to fascinate me how your body can just stop functioning when your emotions get too strong, so that was the starting point of the song. I also get an incredible high when I perform, like a surge of adrenaline, and I connected the two. I love, love, love the creative process! It is so fulfilling to make a new song, and working with a great producer like Eric made it even more fun.”

Joining K-Syran on “Dizzy” is famed drummer Steve Ferrone (Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, Bee Gees, Eric Clapton, Duran Duran, Slash), the incredible bassist Garry Gary Beers from Grammy Award winning band INXS and LA based guitar whiz Robb Torres. Legendary engineer Eric Thorngren (Robert Palmer, Bob Marley, Talking Heads, Cyndi Lauper) recorded the drums. Said producer Alexandrakis, “I’ve been recording Steve a lot with a 1950’s Gretsch kit, which has the nicest kick drum sound, and we used it on “Dizzy.”  Garry played his signature GBB bass, which he designed, and it sounds amazing. K-Syran wrote a really great tune, she just has a knack for writing hooks, which gives a lot of space to play with in the arrangement.”

K-Syran can’t wait to take her music out on the road. “I love performing and interacting with my audience, empowering people through music. This is really the reason I do this, to share with fans. The opportunity to express myself, and touch other people while doing so, is an amazing feeling. I am thankful every day to be able to live out my dream.”

K-Syran in 2018 has stepped it up another gear and set up INTIMACY RECORDS signing an exclusive distribution deal with SONY and the Orchard.
Releasing tracks such as Shake that Booty (with remixes from Stonebridge & Damien Hall gaining heavy rotation on radio stations including Kiss FM and Gaydio) to tracks such as SMASH to her latest offering

Experience K-Syran

NEW FOR 2019

K-SYRANS BRAND NEW SINGLE SNEAK PEEK

CAREFREE CARELESS

IR001 - Shake that Booty

Fresh as a peach and oozing uber sex appeal, ‘Shake That Booty’ trips and teases K-Syran’s deep rich vocals around a sound-bed of delicious electronic house beats, ‘Shake That Booty’ comes shrink-wrapped with anthemic potential as it’s distinctive ‘yeah, shake that booty’ lyrics loop lushiously throughout the song, commanding hands stretch to the skies and that booties shake til they break.

IR002 - Unforgettable

My dad is my inspiration to music and I feel blessed to do this duo with you especially releasing through SONY and their efforts to release it on your Birthday, its been a dream come true and i’m so proud of the result. For anyone out there who loves their family and as we grow older we treasure these memories through the years. Remember family is so important and embrace all the time we have with our loved ones on our time on this planet.

IR004 - Smash

Smash is the latest single from Norweigan Pop Star K-Syran, featuring the talent which is Ricardo Tattoo.
Intimacy Records is proud to release such a great track but with a hidden meaning. K-Syran has been known to be forward thinking with every release having a meaning behind her tracks, hidden or blatent and her latest single smash is no exception to this rule.

At frst we think of smash as we can, Smash up something, smash so hard for this exam, just smash that nail polish , sounds like you two have some beef you better smash that before it escalates , you smashed that game, I smashed the whole thing from iTunes, smash is the greatest album ever, that guy is smashing down the freeway , I will smash this week!

Also smash is used as an expression to inject a drug, fuck, take anything as fast as hell.
But also used as an expression of something sublime, wonderful, lovely, delightful. It means to kick ass and have fun along the way but does it.

K-Syran delves deeper in to this meaning and in her upcoming video all will be revealed, she hints, is life what it seems, is the way we portray our selves through social media reality or is it a fantasy of the ego, what really goes on behind closed doors and once the cameras, smartphones and worldwide audience (facebook) arent watching.

IR005 - Journey (Album)

Wow what a journey, it all started 3 years ago with K-Syran opening the UK Tour with Blue.

IR006 - Amoureuse

K-Syran ends 2018 with her very own cover of the infamous French composition Amoureuse originally written by Veronique Sanson.
The song
describes the contradictory feelings of passion and fear of a woman involved in a new love affair and K-Syran has done the song justice in this cover, delivering a beautiful rendition which will have you reaching for the repeat buttontime and time over.

Ever pushing boundaries K-Syran wanted to not only cover the track in its native French, but also offer an English version and Hybrid version, so working with UK based Producer Electrik Disco they provided just that.

Also on remix duties are the extremely talented Sanny X and John Teki who take the track to another level going deeper with their offerings and adding credible club mixes to the package.
