About the artist
“Kaiya Gamble is a soulful pop singer-songwriter. She has performed for 5 years, both with a band and by herself. Fans are always captivated by her authentic storytelling and overall positive energy.”
If Alessia Cara and Sara Bareilles had a younger sister obsessed with Leslie Odom Jr that would be Kaiya. She is soulful, passionate and inclusive. "I hope that anyone who comes to my shows or listens to my music can have permission to let go and be 110% themselves". She mainly does pop music but some songs may surprise you. Her motto is the same for music and people: everyone's welcome. Since releasing her debut single "Speak Out" in 2020, Kaiya's artistry has continued to blossom! She has performed for over thousands of people all over the world, has been nominated for two YYC Music Awards, won third place in the International Womens Freedom Song Contest, was the first recipient to receive the Youth Excellence Award at the 2019 Women of Inspiration Awards, and won Lawson Vocal Studios National "BECOMING" Contest, being named their Standout Artist of 2021. Most recently Kaiya was selected out of hundreds of applicants to be a showcase artist at Canadian Music Week in Toronto, attended by artists and industry professionals. Kaiya has released two more singles since then, "I'm In It" and "Sweet Talker" both produced by JUNO/CCMA award winning Justin Kudding and Spencer Cheyne at the award winning OCL Studios. She has continued to write singles set to be released, co writing with notable Canadian songwriters ANNIKA, Aaron Pollock, and Lydia Sutherland. In November 2021, Kaiya put on her own free, online benefit concert "Kaiya Live" , in support of frontline workers and also 3 different organizations. "Kaiya Live" was streamed into several countries around the world including Canada, USA, Brazil, and Australia. She was accompanied by JUNO and CCMA Award winning musicians Justin Kudding, Brennan Wall, Brendan Waters and Greg Williamson. She also had guest appearances from Australia singers Lenka and Edo Kahn. She has performed at over 100 shows, both in person and online. This includes monthly online performances at the Randwick Children's Hospital in Sydney Australia, charity events for causes such as adolescent mental health, cancer awareness, and veterans, and shows for crowds in the thousands, all captivated by her incredible storytelling and ability to connect with her audience. Kaiya is on the path to becoming Canada’s next pop breakout artist. With an incredible work ethic, passion for music, strong values, and undeniable talent, Kaiya Gamble is destined for great things.
