The seeds of change were planted in a dream she had the summer before starting law school. Awaking with a melody in her head, lyrics poured out in a stream of divine inspiration; before she knew it, she had written her first song “Crazy.” “Crazy” would eventually end up as the winning song in Slaight Music’s 2015 “It’s Your Shot” competition, land her a recording contract with Cadence Music and serve as inspiration for her debut EP Beautiful Chaos. “The song that started it all. It made me realize that […] everyone you meet was put there for a reason,” says Kayla.
On top of recording her EP, she’s been collaborating with several DJs; a cover of Mike Posner’s “I Took A Pill In Ibiza,” recorded with Kiso Armic, has received well over 4 million streams on Soundcloud. “Feel Something,” her most recent collaboration with Anevo, has hit 3 million+ streams on Spotify since its release in December 2016. Those collaborations, along with several others, have received notable praise from the likes of Tiësto, Gareth Emery, Axwell and more.
“It’s inspired by the concept of isolation and being lost in your own world. This is about me creating life within and from emptiness,” she reflects, referring to her first single “Carnival Hearts.” [Beautiful Chaos] represents my life until now – there have been many ups and many downs […], and that to me is beautiful and chaotic. I wouldn’t change a thing.”
