Agnieszka Chylińska is a singer-songwriter and a popular TV personality from Gdańsk, Poland. From 1994 until  2003 she was the lead singer of O.N.A, joining the band when aged just 18. She has established herself as a rebellious enfant terrible of Polish heavy music scene. One of the few female vocalists in the heavy metal industry at the time,  she became well-known for her raw, raspy voice and energetic violent delivery. As a songwriter, Chylińska aimed to expose the deepest and truest emotions and anxieties of her generation. O.N..A., which played heavy metal-inspired rock music, enjoyed a huge commercial and critical success. It can be argued that it was Chylińska’s rebellious attitude and her unique, wild quality of voice as well as piercing honesty and aggression of lyrics that were responsible for the band’s success. Chylińska received multiple Fryderyk Awards and award nominations (the equivalent of Grammy Awards in Poland) and was named vocalist and songwriter of the year multiple times.

Having left O.N.A. in 2004, she teamed up with some of her ex-band members to establish a new music project, Chylińska. In 2009 Agnieszka Chylińska embarked on a solo career and made some interesting creative choices – her first solo album was inspired by pop and dance music. Both this debut solo record and the following release went triple platinum. In 2018, while working as one of the judges of the popular “You Got Talent” show, she released a punk-music inspired album “Pink Punk”.
