is unabashedly obsessed with oldies and is truly the definition of an old soul.
In her newest efforts she is pulling influence from the sub genre “yacht rock” and artists like Hall & Oates, Boz Scaggs, The Doobie Brothers & Steely Dan. Williams’ new EP to be released early summer of 2022 is a playful, upbeat tribute to this time in music. She is bringing a sassiness and feminine perspective to her take on this (clearly male dominated) era of soft ’70s pop/rock.
In 2021 Williams was the recipient of the Red Deer Emerging Artist Award, an Alberta Music microgrant and most recently a grant from the Alberta Foundation of the Arts all to be used towards her 2022 EP!
Kayla has newly moved to Calgary and amongst working on her own exciting new EP she also works as a musician with artists like ‘Tandem Yam’, ‘The Dirrty Show’, ‘The Torchettes’ and corporate band ‘Cherries on Red’. You can find her on many stages throughout Central Alberta and you can hear her on any streaming platform.
