Kayla Bliss Picks Singing, ‘Because I’m Not Good At Anything Else’

Kayla Bliss’ music style is a blend of Reggae and Hip Hop with R&B vocals. The Jamaican born Brooklyn bred singer came to Singersroom’s attention when she won the A&R Power Summit R&B showcase. A self-contained artist, Kayla writes and co-produces her music with a philosophy of “You can’t make your heart feel something it won’t.”

Artists have overused the phrase “my life is a movie,” but Kayla has been able to create visual musical stories that “feed the demented parts of people’s minds… kinda like a horror movie. You know you’re going to be scared, but you can’t look away.”

Training Camp in the Brooklyn Youth Chorus… “The Brooklyn Youth Chorus taught me to identify musical techniques. It plays a huge part in my creative process because in order to break rules you have to know what they are; if you know what I mean.”

Shed A Tear For Music… “The first song that made me cry was “Journey To The Past” by Aaliyah for the Anastasia soundtrack. The first two lines are “Heart don’t fail me now. Courage don’t desert me. Don’t turn back now that we’re here.” It was exactly what I needed to hear. My parents were splitting at the time and I was struggling to stay focused on my dream.”

Following The Path of a Musician… “Because I’m not good at anything else.” (Laughs)

Drawing the Line on Personal Lyrics… “I will sing about anything. There is a way to say things so that listeners won’t get offended. I try to be cautious of that.”

Finding A Good Man… “I think that you will find a good man if you are open to finding one without being desperate. If you don’t believe good men exist, then they won’t.”

Nonstop Love For R&B… “Because R&B is the only marriage that will last forever. Rhythm loves blues. Blues loves rhythm. They will always love each other.”
