Brooklyn born with Jamaican blood best describes the places from
whence Kayla Bliss comes. She rides reggae riddims like Sanchez or Marcia
Griffiths, still taking inspiration from legends like Anita Baker and Roberta
Flack. She writes her songs, taking cues from Donny Hathaway and Stevie
Wonder. Lastly, she gives it a modern bounce, like classic Brandy or Mary J.
Blige. A lot of singers wouldn’t be able to deliver a melting pot of styles like
this, but Kayla Bliss does it with ease. Kayla Bliss is eclectic to say the least,
whose artistry is cut from a different cloth which effortlessly moves, shifts,
gravitates and blurs the distinctive creative lines of these genres.
Kayla went from singing in local talent shows and church in Brooklyn
as a child, to opening for Buju Banton and Super Cat at 18. Somewhere in
between there she gained experience on great stages like Radio City Music
Hall, Madison Square Garden, The Cipriani, and Lincoln Center. After a
childhood packed with classical vocal training and musical theory, Kayla took
every musical boundary she knew and broke it.
Kayla struggled to find a musical home early in her career. She was
bouncing back and forth between heart clenching R&B ballads, bass heavy
lovers’ rock, and beat driven hip hop. Kayla built a fan base by producing
melodic masterpieces and female anthems on her first mixtapes “Face The
Music” and Headphones’ & Halos”. Her first two mixtapes granted her a heavy
internet presence, and got rave reviews from notable websites and blogs.
Finally in 2011 Kayla teamed up with the legendary Xterminator
Productions for her worldwide debut. Headed by the late Phillip “Fatis” Burrell
and, heir to the throne, Kareem “Remus” Burrell, Kayla proceeds to lace
airwaves with smooth melodies and lush harmonies backed by the rhythm
and bass of the unstoppable duo, Sly & Robbie. She has been dubbed “Audio
Angel”, soon she will step foot on every stage for fans of every genre with true
crossover grace. With a whimsical, loving, musical style, Ms. Kayla Bliss is
leading the new world music movement.
To say she is up next would be an understatement, as an artist who
has managed to build an extraordinary track record she clearly is up NOW.
When asked what makes her different from other female artist she responds
“I am crazy, they are normal”. Crazy in the sense of how passionate she is
about her craft, whether rocking an event at a local venue, writing for a cause
or recording in Jamaica, Kayla gives the audience all of her with every lyric
she writes and sings. This young, dedicated and witty young lady is what the
entertainment field is missing. Through her music she showcases that Love is
her religion. Her music shows people how powerful love is; she quotes “when
you have love inside of you, you want to feed the hungry, heal the sick, and
educate the uneducated.”
