Karolina Styła was born in Krakow, in 1981, daughter of the famous guitarist Ryszard Styła. Although her list of artistic achievements, because of her young age, is not particularly long, she has been performing at clubs in Krakow for two years, most frequently in bands under the direction of her father. She has appeared in two festivals, the Summer Jazz Festival at the "Piwnica Pod Baranami" (Krakow), and Solo-Duo-Trio (Krakow).
On her 18th birthday, doubtless at the initiative of her father, she recorded an album with a group of leading Polish musicians. It is due out this year, and is entitled Karolina Styła with Spectrum Session Acoustic. The other performers are Ryszard Styła (guitars), Joachim Mencel (piano), Andrzej Cudzich (double bass), Piotr Wojtasik (trumpet and flugelhorn), Leszek Szczerba (saxophones), Łukasz Żyta (drums) and Sławomir Berny (percussion). All the arrangements are by Joachim Mencel, who also directed the recording.
