Mya K

‘Mya Emem Kinlock, better known as Mya K, is the rising songstress hailing from South London. Her music draws inspiration from various genres, while keeping RnB at the centre of it all.

Her professional music career began in Nigeria aged 10, managed by her mother. Despite both being new to the industry, she worked on her craft and released her first songs and music videos. From shooting videos in South Africa, to being awarded Best Video by a Minor at the Nigerian Music Video Awards in 2014, Mya K reached astounding heights at a young age.

In 2017, she attended the world renowned Brit school and developed her skills further – fast forward to the present day and the growth speaks for itself.

A vibrant singer-songwriter hailing from the heart of South London, emerges as a refreshing artist in the contemporary music scene. Her musical tapestry weaves together poetic lyricism, soulful vocals, and an electrifying stage presence that sets her apart. Drawing from the vulnerability of classic jazz singers and the modern sensibilities of contemporary artists, Elsa’s voice is a resonant blend that captivates audiences.

Before her voice matured into the soulful resonance it embodies today, she identified as a poet, allowing pen and paper to channel her emotions and experiences. Remarkably, Elsa is entirely self-taught and self-managed, a testament to her unwavering dedication and hands-on approach in all her creative ventures.

Elsa’s upcoming EP promises to be a compelling journey through the realms of womanhood, pain, and her healing processes. Her second single was accompanied by her first self-directed music video.

Hailing from Greenwich, Southeast London, the songstress uses music to evoke relative thought and emotion as her vocals glide on soulful instrumental productions.
