© Pauline Kyllonen (pronounced ke-low-nen) is an independent, performing, singer/songwriter based out of British Columbia, Canada. She is a member of SOCAN, past member of NSAI (Nashville Songwriter's Association) and Music BC.

Since the self-release of her debut CD in 2008, Pauline has been actively performing at various venues around Canada with her band and as a solo performer. Her music has received some critical attention, as well as, commercial/community and campus radio airplay. Her latest 2 singles (self-released to radio via DMDS), "More Than Kiss" and "If It Felt Like Christmas" charted at #3 and #9 on the DMDS "Most Active Indie Charts" for that week.

Pauline's performances include the legendary Bluebird Cafe in Nashville (Sept 2012), 2013 & 2014 Calgary Stampede, Main Stage at 2012 Sunfest in Duncan, BC with artists such as the Charlie Daniel's Band and the Kentucky Headhunters, 2009/2011 Merritt Mountain Music Festival, the 2009 and 2010 Vancouver Island Music Business Conferences, a cross-Canada tour on VIA Rail from BC to Prince Edward Island in 2016 and also as a  featured artist on Chevy Cross-Canada Countdown on CMT (Country Music Television) Canada.

Pauline's new release "Pull Me Through" is a beautiful song written by Canadian singer/songwriter, Jim Cuddy and is a precursor to her new EP that is scheduled to be released this summer. The song just released for distribution, reached #58 on iTunes Top 100 Easy Listening charts on June 25, 2018. You can download “Pull Me Through” on iTunes at:

She may hail from Canada, but her sound is right out of Nashville.  Suffice to say she's got the Folk/Americana/Country sound down pat and has the talent to make the most of it.

What sets Kyllonen apart from others is the simplicity with which she showcases the music. Her strong yet wistful voice is the main instrument on these tracks, never overwhelmed by complex instrumentation or too slick production. Think of a cleaner, less fussy musical version of Lucinda Williams and you'll be on the right track.

"Pauline's melancholy sounds bring Chris Isaak to mind, and they are the kind of tunes to listen to when sipping a cold beer or glass of white wine, most certainly on a balcony somewhere, alone, to immerse yourself in the images and emotions her songs conjure up." - DJW, Mr. Neil's Blog, New York City, New York (Apr 26, 2009).

"It’s only a short EP, 4 songs, but this is one of those releases where a listener can discover a great deal. Kyllonen has a warm and intimate honey-smooth voice and sings with a melting ease. Even when she’s rocking out in “Unlucky”, there are no shrill bits; it all seems so effortless."
- Jeremiah Sutherland, BullFrogMusic Reviews (Apr 19, 2009). More....
