It’s #MusicMonday, and #HipNJ is here to tell you about an up-and-coming New Jersey artist named Kayla Nicole.
Kayla has always had a love for music, thanks to her mother who would always listen to artists like Whitney Houston, Celin Dion, Dionne Warwick and Lionel Richie.
When she was about 10 years old, she started performing in talent shows at school and “loved every second of it.”
She says that music was not just a passion for her. It was also a coping mechanism for being teased at school, making music even more important in her life.
She started writing lyrics when she was in eighth grade and started producing tracks her senior year of high school in her bedroom.
Her goal for her career currently is to release an album in July 2017, called, Late Night Thoughts, which is about personal experiences in her life. She hopes that many will be able to listen and relate.
