This is an archive of the band profile for Kayla Kavanagh.
Kayla Kavanagh is a solo artist with a twist. The 29 year old Irish singer/songwriter performs live with an array of instruments, wires and technology, taking the audience on a journey from acoustic to full technology-led electronica. The music graduate qualified with an MA in Digital Performance, and is now recording her debut album Stranger than Fiction with engineer/producer Nigel Pease, fusing her traditional roots with live music technology. This summer Kayla will be touring the UK both in the Kampervan and live on stage at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, promoting the new single and album.
Renowned for her outdoor gigs from her VW Kampervan, Kayla's unique musical abilities allow her to become a 'one woman band'. Equally at home on acoustic guitar or with a stage full of technology, Kayla's live performances feature numerous instruments, including keyboard, electric violin, guitar, flute, hammered dulcimer, looping pedals and vocoder. Kayla's debut single Heavens Above/Fallen, recently featured on BBC Radio, was launched in May..
