Ever since I heard ambient music, I’ve been highly interested in it…
…and I’ve got another etherial artist for you by the name of KYLO
KYLO is the stage name of Kayla Dunn, a Toronto-based singer/songwriter who prides herself in being able to “transport you to a universe you won’t want to come back from”.
Ambient music focuses on the mood and I’ve been wearing out her single “Beyond Visions” like nobody’s business! HAHA I absolutely love it and the chorus is so ‘hooky’. I love singing along with it 🙂
Take a listen to “Beyond Visions” here:
That song to me is one I never get tired of hearing! It’s so refreshing and the first time I heard it, I really thought that it was so polished that it could be easily be paired with a movie or visual medium! Listen up all my music supervisors looking for music for movies!!
She’s come a long way from a girl and a guitar! I’m so proud of her new sound!
KYLO was kind enough to answer some questions for us, so here we go:
1) When did you first find yourself interested in music?
“Ever since I was a kid I always had a knack for sound, rhythm, harmonies, etc. Music always interested me, whether it was in the form of musical plays or karaoke with friends. I started taking singing lessons when I was 8 years old, and further developed my own voice and style in my teen years.”
2) How long have you been pursuing a career in music?
“I would say professionally it has been about 4 years. I used to play covers around bars in my hometown, and then moved to Toronto to start pursuing my own original songs.”
3) What is your hometown?
4) Were you ever in any bands?
“No I was never in any bands. Like I said, I did perform at different bars in Windsor with a friend who accompanied me on guitar. After I moved to Toronto I played my original acoustic folk songs and independently released an EP. Now I have rebranded as KYLO, with a new exiting sound. I think it is important for an artist to keep evolving for creative integrity.”
5) What do you wish to accomplish with your music?
“I just hope to be able to share my music with the world and to be able to play as many live shows as possible. Even if one person heard my song and was like ‘Oh thats pretty sick’, thats an accomplishment to me.”
6) How would you describe your sound?
Dreamy, pop, soulful, trippy, ambient, alternative, witchy, etc.
As for what KYLO is up to now, she’s working on releasing an brand new EP called Cosmic Vapour!
Congratulations KYLO on your new sound & I can’t wait to hear Cosmic Vapour!
