Kya Karine
Schedule: Mon – Fri
Kya Karine graduated from the University of Utah with a Bachelor’s degree in Jazz Performance in 2017. She has had the opportunity to play with musicians such as Loren Allred (The Greatest Showman), Rashawn Ross (Dave Matthew’s Band), Karl Hunter (Big Bad Voodoo Daddy), and David Osmond. She spent two years learning about the business and marketing side of music by working as Caleb Chapman’s Executive Assistant, founder and chairman of Caleb Chapman’s Soundhouse (65 time DownBeat award winning and 11 time Best of State winning after-school music program in Utah). She has played shows all over the country with groups of every genre, ranging from an all-female Latin Group to Jazz Big Bands to Pop cover groups and even Bluegrass and Americana groups, and she founded a successful 10-piece Amy Winehouse tribute band (Amy Jade’s Beehive Society).

In December of 2019, she put out her debut record on all platforms: a Lone Peak Sound Christmas jazz album titled “Christmas Fire,” co-released with David Halliday, and the album was added to Spotify’s editorial playlist “New Music Holiday” where it garnered 25,000 streams the week before Christmas.

In March of 2020 she relocated to Los Angeles to record an album of original music with Salt Lake City native group Band on the Moon. The album was produced by renowned studio engineer Lior Goldenberg (Allen Stone, Macy Gray, Alanis Morissette, Sheryl Crow, etc) and Kya was lucky enough to spend a full month March-April 2020 finessing the bass parts on the album with him. Despite the many hurdles presented by the pandemic they were able to complete the project and the album, “Reflections in a Two-Way Mirror” was released on all platforms on July 31, 2021.

Kya currently works full-time as a freelance musician on both upright and electric bass and lives in Los Angeles.
