Alternative pop artist Kayla Katelyn Cariaga has an up-beat, folky vibe with an ability to turn anything acoustic and add sparkle to any sound.
She started off singing karaoke at the age of four and finding a passion for using her voice. From then on, she immersed herself in the world of music and the arts, learning how to play the piano at the age of 10 and experimenting with writing poems. Her poetry soon turned into song-writing and she decided that she wanted to become a musician.
Dedicated and motivated towards this goal, she began working towards her first releases, with the upmost care and attention. Then, in summer 2012 she released two singles, “Everything” and “Snow Flakes”, at the mere age of 12. She followed these up with her first debut EP “Memories”, containing five songs, in 2015. In March 2016, she dropped her third single “Stars Around” and is growing an audience that relate to her emotion-led song-writing and captivating voice.
Since then, she’s worked with some of the music industry’s talented song-writers such as “The Jackie Boyz” from Universal Music Group and been invited to perform at their charity event in California. She’s also collaborated with legendary musician Richie Cannata from Billy Joel’s band on a single due to be released in summer 2017. Invitations have flooded in for her to work with high profile artists from around the world.
As well as a talented song-writer, Kayla C. is also an experienced performer. At 13 she started performing at various events in Orange County, Rockland County, New Jersey, and New York City and as far as Pennsylvania, Ohio and Texas. She’s since been asked to perform at town festivals, music festivals and music conferences, including CMJ, Millennium and Cape May Singer-Songwriter, Springboard South as well as at charity and private events.
With a supportive family behind her, she is currently studying at Monroe-Woodbury High School in New York and balancing her recording and performing with her education. Continuing to build her career, she has since received music distribution deals in the U.S. and abroad and publishing deals locally. She’s recently landed a recording deal to produce a single with a known producer and is taking the steps towards growing her listening base.
With a strong online presence and a passion for both writing and performing, she is a versatile and confident musician, with the ability to put a crowd at ease and entertain them. Each performance she gives is fueled by the deep-rooted emotion that listeners crave.
Inspired by some of the well-known artists/musicians Christina Perri, Sara Bareilles and Kinna Grannis, she writes and sings about life experiences and observations to share her journey and personal insights. Her ultimate goal is to be known and recognized as one of the best young Filipino-American singer/songwriters, with the opportunity to give back to the family that have nurtured her talents so well as well as to her followers who have been there supporting her.
She is currently working towards the production of new singles and her second EP. With releases planned for the rest of 2017, as well as 2018, and a second EP slated for next year, Kayla C. is excited about the future.
After she completes high school, she plans to hopefully tour extensively and perform at various venues and media stations locally as well as abroad. She will continue to write her own songs about the adventures she experiences and can’t wait to share them with a much wider audience.
