Ochman rose to fame when his vocal talents saw him voted as the winner of ‘The Voice of Poland’.

Born in Massachusetts, US, Krystian Ochman has lived in Poland since his teenage years; firstly in Katowice, where he studied at the Karol Szymanowski Academy of Music, and now in Warsaw.

After his victory on The Voice, the singer released his debut single, Światłocienie. The song got off to a great start, clocking up over 300,000 streams on Spotify in its first week alone. More hits followed, and in November 2021, he went on to release his self-titled debut album.

Krystian isn’t the only famous performer in the family: he’s the grandson of the internationally renowned Polish tenor Wiesław Ochman. No doubt inspired by his grandfather’s musical prowess, the Eurovision hopeful learned to play both the trumpet and the piano as a youngster.

Lyrics of River

Gonna take my body down Right down, down, down to the river Gonna take my body down Let the water carry me away Just float away Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh Bury all of my things Bury me in my skin All that I‘ve done Oh Lord, I‘m done Who‘d wanna be a king Pulling too many strings? All that I‘ve done Oh Lord, I‘m done (Oh) Carry me away I‘ll float away (Oh) In the river Gonna lay my head right down Right now, now, now and forever Gonna lay my head right down Let the water carry me away Just float away Bury all of my things Bury me in my skin All that I‘ve done Oh Lord, I‘m done Who‘d wanna be a king Pulling too many strings? All that I‘ve done Oh Lord, I‘m done (Oh) Carry me away I‘ll float away (Oh) In the river, oh-oh In the river, oh-oh In the river, oh, yеah Bury all of my things Bury me in my skin All that I‘ve done Oh Lord, I‘m donе Who‘d wanna be a king Pulling too many strings? All that I‘ve done Oh Lord, I‘m done (Oh) Gonna take my body down Right down, down, down to the river
