While Kaya comes across with the poise and attitude of a seasoned performer, she's actually only 15. The "In Love With a Boy" singer describes her style as edgy and pulls inspiration from the same place as many teenage girls -- Instagram.
Kaya told us that people sometimes say she's "too young," but age is just a number for this powerhouse vocalist. She proves you're never too young to start pursuing your passion, sharing your music and touring with some of today's biggest bands.
Cambio: How did you first become interested in pursuing a career in music?
Kaya: My family's very musical and growing up my dad had a huge influence on me. My dad's an amazing singer/songwriter, he's a producer and I think it was just kinda in my blood. I was always listening to old music growing up and I think it just kind of naturally happened.
Cambio: What inspired your new EP?
Kaya: I wrote the songs on my EP when I was between the ages of 12 and 14. I think at that time in my life I was kinda transitioning from being a kid to living and making music in a more grown up world.
Cambio: What was your experience been like on Warped Tour this summer?
Kaya: Warped Tour was a lot of fun. I think it's one of those tours where you learn so much in such a short period of time. I'm so lucky to be a part of something that's been going on for so many years.
Cambio: I love going to Warped Tour as a fan and have had friends go on Warped Tour. Some female musicians have said that being a girl on Warped Tour can be tough. In your opinion, what is it like being a girl on Warped Tour?
Kaya: I don't think being a girl on Warped Tour puts me at any disadvantage. Everybody's equal on the tour. Some of the biggest bands are playing and there's a lot really small bands as well, but we all got treated exactly the same. I think being a girl doesn't make any difference.
Cambio: What's one piece of advice you'd want to give to other teenage girls like yourself?
Kaya: I'm never going to call myself a role model for teenagers, because I'm a teenager like every other teenage girl and I don't think that people should be looking up to me for advice or huge life choices, because I'm a teen, I barely know what I'm talking about, but I think my advice is if you're passionate about something, pursue it.
