I’ve been trying to connect with what the project means to me, what it is at it’s core and where it might sit in the world.
I keep coming back to one recurring theme: a search for home and belonging.

KYVA represents occupying a space between two worlds. The pull and push of that experience.

It’s pronounced (K-eye-Vah).

…everyone once had to be told how to pronounce ‘Sade’.


Crafting a delicate balance of alternative pop influenced by the likes of The Cure, Prince and Elliot Smith, KYVA embodies a union of worlds: drawing equally from spheres of Dark Wave and Soul to create something entirely new and sonically beautiful.
