Kylie Spence

An  old soul, but young at heart, Kylie Spence writes songs with a  universal appeal that listeners of any age will relate to. At only 16  years old, many may wonder how Kylie is able to write songs about issues  that seem outside the realm of what an ordinary teenager might  experience, much less be able to articulate. But since she was a young  child, Kylie demonstrated a deeply empathetic nature and an emotional  maturity far beyond her years. Now  Kylie uses her innate gift to pen powerful lyrics and incorporate them  into well-crafted, original songs. She is a true storyteller at heart,  and uses her unique voice to tell a story with every song.

As  a child, Kylie wrote poems, short stories, and occasionally the lines  to a song. She started playing piano at age 8, and began taking guitar  and vocal lessons at 12. Her love of writing and playing music  dovetailed, and she hasn’t stopped composing songs since. 

Kylie  describes her sound as “a mix of indie pop with a hint of alternative.”  Her warm, soulful vocals soar, dip and tumble across the octaves—and  the heartstrings. She is already garnering comparisons to a young Adele,  and one can sense that the richness of her voice will only deepen in  coming years. 

Kylie  does not solely write about herself, or for herself. Many of her songs  are not directly about her own life, but dive into topics that can be  difficult to speak about openly. Her wish for listeners is that they  feel something, and connect with the lyrics and the melody of her  compositions.

“If  my lyrics can help someone through a rough patch in their life, or even  make them realize that they're not alone, then I know I have  succeeded,” the young artist has said. 

Kylie  writes songs about love in all its forms—good, bad, and the many gray  areas in between. Although she has never been in a serious relationship,  Kylie is able to tap into a timeless wisdom about matters of the heart,  and authentically share it through her songwriting. 

For  Kylie, writing, composing and performing is a means of processing and  releasing her thoughts and feelings, and connecting with listeners. She  couldn't imagine life without this gift she was given, and she hopes  that by sharing her songs, others will feel less alone, or a little more  “free,” too. 

In  July 2017, Kylie’s first single, “Lying Eyes,” immediately hit the  iTunes’ Hot Tracks charts, and has since accumulated more than 150,000  Spotify streams, with 30,000 listeners the month of its release. Conveying  the songwriter’s deep sense of self, “Lying Eyes” captures the  excruciating torment of knowing it’s time to let go of a toxic  relationship, but holding on in the slim hope that the situation, or the  other person, might change. It’s a song that will resonate with anyone  who has undergone an internal battle of the heart. 

Her second single, “The ‘L’ Word,” has had the same captivating effect on listeners.“Many  people in today's society toss around the word ‘love’ like it's candy,”  Kylie said. “But love means something, and it shouldn't be used so  lightly. We have used the word so many times in unnecessary situations,  then when we do actually mean it, there is no impact. We don't even  think twice about it.” 

Now, her third single, "Allergic to your love," captures the struggle of lovers in a relationship.

Kylie’s first EP, “Boomerang,” will be released in the summer of 2018.
