Kinga Glyk - Dream CD-Cover

 

 

This young woman is an absolute Internet phenomenon. Out of nowhere a real musician emerges, young, attractive, highly talented, with numberless clicks jamming the airwaves and achieves in the world of jazz what others have demonstrated in pop and mainstream music. Kinga Glyk at twenty is not only the first front woman of a jazz band in her native country Poland, but at the moment the greatest jazz sensation on all the social networks across Europe.

 

Her career actually began at the age of 12 when her father, a drummer who, after discovering her talent, put her in the Glyk family trio PIK. Today, with the release of her third new record "Dream" by Warner Music and with numerous concerts already behind her, she has become a star in Poland and is blazing a trail through the European club and festival circuit.

 

Though original compositions dominate the titles of "Dream", Glyk offers her duo-version and viral-hit "Tears in Heaven" as well as her rendition of "Teen Town" a bow to Jaco Pastorius, the master of bass guitar. Mostly it's about being in the groove and having fun, but also about building a personal relationship with the listener through the music. "I am trying to share much more with the people than just playing fast and slow notes. I want to write songs that have something to say. Music is a great journey for me. I’m doing what I really love and that’s phantastic. My dreams are coming true quicker than I could ever have hoped!"  Is it any wonder she called her new album “Dream”.
