Kaya was born in London but moved to Los Angeles at the age of six where she quickly began astounding people by writing and singing her own songs. She fell in love with the early soul records of Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye and Aretha Franklin when she was given a record player for her birthday, but her passion for music also encompasses Beyonce, Emeli Sande and beyond. Combining the classic songwriting and singing of the soul greats with the synthesizers and beats of modern production, Kaya has created a unique new sound which showcases her incredible voice and melodic writing.
Since the age of twelve Kaya has been a charismatic and fearless live performer. From intimate shows at the Troubadour to performing in front of ten thousand people, she has consistently blown audiences away both in the US and abroad.
After putting two new songs on Soundcloud earlier this year, within days record labels were flying in to meet Kaya and vie for a chance to sign her. In May 2014, Kaya signed to Warner Brothers Records at the tender age of fourteen. Inking a five album deal with WBR, Kaya completed her first album and delivered track after track of inherent hit singles.
Poised to take over the world with a new kind of sound, Kaya reminds us that true talent can shine through at any age.
