Aged 21, singer-songwriter and pianist Kyan has always maintained that it is best to lead from the front. Since choosing to give up his university place at Kings College, London to pursue a career in music, his focus on achieving his goal hasn’t faltered. Kyan describes his style of music as intelligent pop, soul and r “n” b. Inspired by the Stevie Wonder his mother played at home, a determined 10 year old Kyan taught himself to play piano on a tiny Casio keyboard. Unusually for a child, he skipped the stage of learning covers and started out by writing his own songs at the same time as teaching himself to play the piano in order to develop his original material.
