Singer Ivlyn Mutua Unveils ‘12 Beats Of Christmas’ Album

It’s clear that Ivlyn Mutua is hungry to reach full icon status in the world with her debut Christmas Album – The 12 Beats of Christmas. It has been less than a year and she is ready to run the world. For her, it’s not a competition, and the only labels she cares about are the ones she’s bestowed upon herself. It being #IvlynARunIt – her taking over the world with her awesome voice.

Ivlyn’s debut Christmas album has an alluring sound. Rarely has a hybrid of new wave and experimental reggae led to such a masterpiece. The singer is continuously giving a patchwork of genre-smashing sounds.

Ivlyn Mutua has packed a lot of life into her thriving career since moving to Nairobi from the countryside. In 2011 she studied in Kenyatta University majoring in Music. Later she got a permanent job in Nairobi chapel as a worship leader. Here, she developed a deeper devotion to Christianity, thus decided to be a full-time gospel artist. However, In 2015-2016 she got a taste of the secular world when she decided to become a background vocalist for various artists on Coke Studio Africa. Afterward, she took a long break and right after transitioned fully into a secular artist.

‘Missing you’ a track she holds close to her heart, was a song she wrote remembering her late cousin who in her words was “like her best friend”. This Ballad track features a sweet-sounding, emotional chorus that takes you deep. Missing you is one of the original songs to be featured in the ’12 Beats of Christmas’ album. Ivlyn Mutua has created an extroverted electrified song with a professional sounding sonic boost that makes you yearn for more. Missing you is a compelling chorus and the lyrics are smart, thoughtful, unflinching and self-aware as she sings directly from her heart. The song takes you through a story in which the artist not only reveals her journey through challenges with life specifically death but also acknowledges that it wouldn’t be possible without the help of family who helped in staying positive through it all.

In addition to her lyrical prowess, which is a highlight in the album, the tracks were done by renown producers; Vicky Pon Dis, Chris Adwar, ABH Sounds, Dan Aceda, Ilogos Music and Mutoriah. This journey of creation led to the production of 12 Beats of Christmas; 6 original songs and 6 covers.

Ivlyn Mutua offers a refreshing style, presence and looks to the Kenyan music scene. The captivating essence of eliciting great emotion, along with the endless quest for growth, adds to her appeal both locally and globally. As the year comes to a close we wish you a Merry 12 Beats of Christmas.
