In 2005, Pauline entered one of her first
song compositions; Rainbow Café into the Music BC (MAP
Program). It was this song that managed to win her 3 days of
studio recording time at The Factory Studios in Vancouver, BC. In April
2008, she was finally able to go to Vancouver and record and
produce her debut CD. The CD was officially released in June
Pauline was very fortunate to be able to
hire and work with some of Canada’s music "best" on her recent
CD project. They include: John Maclean and Sheldon Zaharko of
The Factory Studios, Pat Steward on drums (The New Odds, Bryan
Adams, Matt Good...), Shaun Verreault on electric guitar (solo
performer, Wide Mouth Mason), Doug Elliot on bass (The New
Odds) and Tyson Naylor on keyboards.
Since the release, Pauline has been
extremely busy self-marketing and promoting her CD extensively
via the internet; through community, college and online radio
stations and live performances. She also hired RadiodirectX to
market her CD to community and college radio nationally and
internationally. Through these marketing efforts,
Pauline's CD has received some critical attention, along with
radio airplay worldwide.
Pauline's most recent performances include the Bluebird Cafe,
Nashville, TN, 2012 Sunfest Concerts, Duncan, BC, 2009 and
Island Music Business Conferences and 2009/2011 Merritt Mountain Music
Festival. Pauline has also been featured Canada-wide on the
Chevy Cross Canada Countdown with Casey Clarke on CMT
"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)
