Krystle Dos Santos
Talented Vancouver-based singer Krystle Dos Santos is piling up the awards, including Winner of the R&B Artist of the Year from the 2020 WCMA’s. “Soul comes from within,” Dos Santos said in an interview with CBC Hot Air host Margaret Gallagher. “I think we have so much more power and access to those things than we believe.”
What advice would Dos Santos – who also acts professionally – offer to aspiring singers and songwriters? In an interview with Find Your Inner Geek, Dos Santos says: ‘Find what you believe in and make that a constant thread in your musical expressions. Also, keep at it! This industry is full of highs and lows, just keep chipping away and you’ll find your place, your sound, your groove, whatever! Lastly, surround yourself with good, well-intentioned people who want to genuinely help and celebrate YOU! A great team makes all the difference – and BE KIND to everyone!’
On June 25th, Dos Santos will be performing at the Coastal Jazz Festival. The limited live seating sold out quickly, but her performance will be free to view online.
