Kyla began playing music when she was five years-old, started her first band at thirteen, and resolved to do this for the rest of her life while studying philosophy at Cambridge University – "I realised I loved writing and performing more than anything." Kyla started working with the acclaimed Communion group in May 2010. Firstly by recording with Kevin Jones (Communion head honcho) and Ian Grimble (The Fall, Siouxsie Sioux) and then performing a special version of her song ‘Hands to Hold’ at the Communion residency at The Flowerpot, whilst being accompanied by around 10 musicians on stage. Kyla has been recording her debut record with exciting newcomer Brett Shaw (South, UNKLE). Not an easy artist to pigeonhole, Kyla’s influences range from Cat Power, Bat For Lashes and Stevie Nicks to American indie faves Modest Mouse and folk heroes like Beirut and Elvis Perkins. Having said that, Kyla’s sound is genuinely original. Whether it’s the heart on sleeve lyrics and violent acoustic strumming of Vampire Smile or the euphoric choruses of Walk Through Walls and Lambs, Kyla La Grange is never one to stay in her musical comfort zone. The final few months of 2010 see Kyla going on tour with I Blame Coco as main support for half of her UK tour. Kyla's debut single is released on the NOIR label in March 2011
