Kayla Waters – "Waterkisses" – Shanachie

Kayla Waters’ label debut, Presence, is a moving collection of deeply personal originals inspired by her faith and nature. “I love painting musical portraits with my music and my titles reflect the musical content of each piece. As a nature lover, I’m drawn to the beauty of the earth, it’s elements and fuse that into my writing.” If water is the source of life and a touchstone for renewal, Kayla provides ample inspiration with her jubilant and free flowing beauty “Waterkisses,” produced by Chris “Big Dog” Davis. The full ten-track excursion on Presence, shines a light on Kayla’s elegant and feathery touch, judicious use of space and dynamics, thoughtful phrasing and dazzling harmonic subtleties. Virtually all the producing, programming and production on the album was done by Kayla and her dad, Kim Waters. Danny Weiss, VP of Jazz A&R at Shanachie Entertainment, says, “Life is beautiful when you listen to Kayla’s music. You’re enveloped in a world of warmth, positivity, and beauty, and if you’re lucky enough to meet her, you’ll understand why!”
