My name is Kayla & I am 16 years old. I consider myself a Singer Songwriter. Singing means the world to me and helps me escape the “teenage” problems I face. The summer of 2013 will go down as being the best summer. I toured summer camps in Pennsylvania and New York and it was the greatest experience. Every day I work on my music whether it’s writing or playing music with my brothers. It started off as a small dream and has turned into everything I’ve wanted. I have had some pretty amazing opportunities, and each day there is more! But really, I am your typical teenage girl who likes to play Xbox and be with my friends. It may be hard for some people to believe but I’m extremely shy (however the shyness disappears whenever I perform.)
My most recent inspiration for songs is about a boy (everyone warned me not to fall in love) he was my entire world but life goes on & people change. It’s so important to really feel your music and not just sing it. Its important to stay true to who you are. I do want to put out a new style of music, retro infused pop. Another thing I have noticed about this world is that it’s so tough to achieve your dream, but it can happen (and some good advice is not getting caught up in love and letting it get in the way of your dreams or having people say you can't). I am so thankful to have a supportive Mom, Dad, brothers and manager!
I’ve already learned it’s a crazy business; each step you take has to be careful. I’ve had more negative criticism than positive some days, it sometimes is a little tough but I will never let it stop me. I've met some wonderful people along the way and have been hurt by some people too. The most important thing to me is to be ME. I have a unique sound and style and very proud of it. It’s very hard to be different but in the end, it will all be worth it. I am at a point in my life where I feel I belong and I’m ready for anything!
