(KAYLA BLISS)

Give us some background info as to who you are.

My name is Kayla Bliss. I am an R&B singer heavily influenced by Reggae and Hip Hop. I have been singing my entire life. And I'm probably the strangest person you will ever come across...

What sets you apart from other aspiring singers?

I'm a singer/rapper/writer/producer . I play a part in all of my music, right down to the final mix. I am very daring and I'm a picture painter. I like to make music in such a way that you can tell what my song is going to be about before you hear the lyrics, just by listening to the marriage of the instruments.

What is the philosophy by which you live by?

My philosophy is "You can't make your heart feel something it won't".

Which artists have inspired you?

Artist who have inspired me include Buju Banton, Bounty Killer, Damien Marley, Sade, Anita Baker, Donny Hathaway, Brandy, Monica, Lupe Fiasco, Kanye West, Dr.Dre ... just to name a few. Those are definitely the most influential.

Who does your production?

I do my production along with my partner DJ KBreezy. Together we make up Andbegin Productions. I have worked with other producers as well like Face and Faroah Black.

What is your opinion of the current state of R&B?

I think that right now "R&B" is more about rhythm and less about blues. Its less about vocal talent and more about drums and image. I don't really know if that's good or bad...*

If you can change one thing about the music industry what would it be and why?

I wish you didn't have to give up your first born child and your soul to be famous.

What can we expect from the you within the next 5 years?

You can expect almost every top quality R&B song on the radio to be at least co written by me, and that's if I'm not singing it.

Any singers would you like to collaborate with in the future?

I would love to work with Tynisha Keli, Mario, and Tank.

What producer would you like to collaborate with in the future?

I would love to collaborate with Brian Michael Cox, Rodney Jerkins, and Dallas Austin.

What is your favorite movie and favorite book?

My favorite movie is Transformers, and my favorite book is Billy Joel's Greatest Hits Song Book.

What are some major misconceptions that you think people have of you?

I think the biggest misconception is that I'm difficult to collaborate with. I'm really not. I'm just not eager because I get nervous when I'm not in full creative control. Nervous can be good or bad. I'm nervous about meeting new people, I can't help that.

What is your favorite part of your live show? How has it evolved?

My favorite part of my live show is the part where I get to sing. Honestly I'm not a big talker. I am very shy and always weary of the way people will receive me. So I just try to get to the singing as soon as possible. That's my favorite part.

What is your LP going to be like?

My LP is going to feed the demented part of people's minds... kinda like a horror movie. You know your going be scared, but you can't look away. That's the best way to describe it. You won't be scared though. You'll be fine.

What is your website?

My websites are www.nojokerecords.com and www.twitter.com/blissycakes.

Any final words for the people.

I want to thank everyone that has supported me thus far. I look forward to everyone that eventually supports me. I hope that I entertain you all, and I hope I don't let you down. Thank you for this interview and opportunity.
