Talk about starting off on the right foot, upcoming singer/songwriter, Kaylee, is making incredible strides in her introduction into the music industry with her new debut EP “Sideways”.
Born and raised in Atlanta, GA, KAYLEE remembers enjoying her life living on the outskirts of the city.
“I grew up in a single-parent household, where my mom was a superhero. I spent A LOT of time with my aunt and my grandpa, who heavily influenced my love for music. My aunt was a DJ and my grandpa played guitar in his free time. Compiled together, everyone in my family raised me on good music with a good heart.”
She first discovered her passion and gift for music around 11 or 12 years old.
“I found myself trying to write my own music early on. The first song I learned was ‘The Only Exception’ by Paramore and I think it set the tone for my first year of music. I learned a lot from the band, like chord progressions and melodies, and I was able to grow from there. Hayley Williams has such a soft and calming voice (at times, haha) that I would hum songs before I felt comfortable singing them. I think that helped me find the right notes within melodies to sing.”
Her song "TIME" is about having gotten through the worst parts of COVID-19 and having spent that time feeling afraid.
“I’d felt that I was afraid of the time that I had lost or wasted being upset over things I couldn’t change or things that were out of my control. I found myself waiting on people to realize their mistakes and eventually approach a reconciliation, but those things never happened. Having COVID-19 really put things into perspective for me.”
Since releasing “Time” she’s been working on a few singles that she plans to release early next year.
“I want to come out with a new vibe and project that people can be excited about.”
KAYLEE does lots of volunteer work at a local dance studio, helping with their events and organizing anything that may have been missed prior to a performance. She also has this message for other aspiring artists!
“I want people to know that it’s never too late to do what you want to do. I think we spend a lot of time waiting for the perfect moment or a sign to tell us it’s okay to embark on this new journey, but sometimes YOU have to make that moment. Everything that comes afterwards is a bonus!”
