Kyla La Grange is a former Cambridge philosophy student whose songs are inspired by the "epic sadness" of Cat Power and Elliot Smith. The Watford-born daughter of hippy parents, she began writing songs aged just five. She began performing solo at open mic nights while still studying at university.
"My songs are all about messing things up and getting sad about it. What I want to do is tap into that feeling of being really fucked up and making music that feels big. I want the songs to feel like a wave has taken you over and washed you up on the shore. I like to revel in that epic sadness, get swept up in it."
