Kyla Charter

Blending her soulful vocals with razor-sharp rock tonalities and pop

sensibilities, singer-songwriter Kyla Charter has lent her voice, and rhythm

guitar playing to a number of both local and international musical artists,

including Patrick Watson,Alessia Cara, July Talk, Zaki Ibrahim, The Queer

Songbook Orchestra and Melbourne based rock band Kingswood. A

Toronto native, Kyla can also be heard singing background vocals on the

forthcoming July Talk and Rich Aucoin albums respectively. She has

appeared on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon, The Late Show with

Stephen Colbert, The Ellen Degeneres Show, Late Night with Seth Meyers,

On Air with Ryan Seacrest, BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge, The Bambi Awards,

Made in America Festival, The European Music Awards, The iHeart Radio

MMVA’s, Danforth Music Hall, Kee to Bala, CBC Festival at Echo Beach,

Massey Hall, Budweiser Stage, Scotiabank Arena, The Barbican Center,

and Madison Square Gardens.

A Humber College, Jazz and Contemporary Vocal Performance alumnus

(with teachers including Larnell Lewis and Rik Emmett), Kyla’s musical

approach weaves her remarkable gift as a storyteller, with A Capella vocal

percussion, and dynamic rock, R&B and folk melodic aesthetics. Borrowing

widely from an eclectic musical spectrum, in large part the result of a truly

multicultural upbringing in the metropolis of Toronto, her sound is whole

world, all heart.
