Who are some of your biggest musical influences?
As a soulful, jazzy-pop vocalist, with influences from Amy Winehouse, Lana Del Rey, and Lady Gaga, I like to stick to my dark and mysterious side, despite the upbeat vibe of the music.
How has your career momentum been going? The Hudson Valley doesn’t have too many aspiring pop stars!
I have been blessed with a variety of amazing opportunities already throughout my career. However in 2016, things began to build upon themselves. My single, “Lullaby” is capturing the hearts of fans everywhere, and is loved by many industry elite. Also, with more than 40 performances all across the Tri-State area and beyond in just the past year, I’ve electrified crowds, entertaining for tens of thousands at some of the biggest festivals in NY and NJ. My dedication earned my work to be featured in several films and television shows over the past few years.
What can fans of Kay expect from you in the future?
2017 is underway with a full calendar of performances, and new music soon to hit the speakers! I believe from the bottom of my heart, that the combination of my uniqueness, style, and work ethic will help me to accomplish all goals.
