The first look gives you a sweet, young, charming, blonde girl, but as soon as you start listening to her music you realize that there is so much more beside these features. Kylie Odetta will pull you in with her powerful, but soft raspy voice, and keep you "hostage" on a journey full of emotions.
Prepare to close your eyes and dream. Laying on a warm beach, hearing the waves and the magical voice of a true artist: Kylie O.
As she said about her goal, "My goal is to create art that moves people deep inside their souls, brings love to light & enhances the beauty and power of emotion" you can feel that. In every word, every note of her piano she unites her vulnerability with her passion to move on and make her dreams come true. Mixing pop with soul and r'n'b brings out the freshness in the sound of this talented artist.
Songs like "Waiting Game", "Can't Handle That" and "Gasoline" show that she is not naive anymore, thinking that love can be just as romantic as in the movies.
You can easily find yourself in her songs. "Promised Myself" is, I am sure of it, a song most of us can relate to. Not giving up on a person even when we see that she acts like she does not want our love, knowing what we have to do, but not doing it. Imagine a kaleidoscope, mysterious, colorful and beautiful, turn it into a person, and you get Kylie Odetta. Personally I am very curious to see all the facets of Kylie O. She continues to release music as this singer/songwriter has over (200 songs!!!) in her library and are available on different platforms.
