Home / BIO


There is absolutely no question that Australian Vocalist, Actress, Model & Host “KYA” is one of the busiest people in the Australian Entertainment Industry.

The artist formerly known as CHRISTINA PARIE has been one busy girl with her 2014 hit “What I Live For’ – penned with respected International Producers , LONDON NOISE –  establishing her new image and presence on the Australian Music Landscape, whilst also sparking her first foray into markets Overseas.


It was only a few short years ago that this youngster rose to National prominence as a top 5 finalist on the 2011 series of Australian X-FACTOR. Although not the winner , The result was a Recording Contract with Warner Music Australia and a Debut Single/EP ’16 and Unstoppable’ which debuted in the Australian Top 10 singles charts in July 2012. A hectic Touring Schedule followed and, for a time, it seemed like KYA was everywhere: Touring & Sharing the stage with SIMPLE PLAN & WE THE KINGS – socialising on Sydney Harbor with ED SHEERAN & keeping medias attention with on-again off again relationship with 5 SECONDS OF SUMMER guitarist Michael Clifford – and returning to TV screens with performances on Channel 7s ‘Sunrise’, Co-hosting & performing at The Nickelodeon Slimefest awards & writing the sync track to television series (The Black List) televison add campaign.


As the initial whirlwind finally slowed, KYA began to explore new frontiers in her evolution as a Recording Artist. Since late 2012, lengthy and intensive periods of time have been spent in the Recording Studio in the search for a new and exciting Sound. For 18 months writing jaunts were made to the U.S.A for sessions in Atlantic Studios (which spawned Nickolodeon TVs Summer Programme theme ‘ Endless Summer Nights ‘) and re connecting with friends Simple Plan and We the Kings to pen more tunes.


It was a trip to the U.K to begin an association with song aficionados “ Phrased Differently” that finally produced the desired results. With an Artist Roster that boasted the likes of One Direction, L’il Mix , Katy Perry and Jessie J; the producers set about the task of establishing the defining sound that would see KYA morph into her next Artistic Stage. Under the watchful eye of prolific Producer Phil Antequil – KYA emerged with the Songs, Look and Sound to treat the Industry and Public with a fresh, revitalised, richer and matured Electro Dance Pop Chanteuse for the next generation of music lovers.


The first offering “WHAT I LIVE FOR” pays homage to the skills accquired and the experiences had which have  sculptured a new resolve and a creative Artist who continues to evolve and emerge with  fresh new sounds showcasing her incredible Vocal Range.


2015 looms as the year of KYA with her signing to Oxygen Music , a new Single Release ready for MARCH and a gauntlet of press releases and Media events already attended and more to come.


For KYA, it’s an on going case of ‘Watch This Space’
