Work on the EP was recently completed by Grammy Award-Winner Music Engineer & Producer Jack Joseph Puig, at the world's most awarded studio complex, Ocean Way Recording in Hollywood. Generations of music icons, from Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Ray Charles, The Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, and Michael Jackson, all the way to contemporary artists like Green Day, Dr. Dre, Radiohead, Kanye West, and The Red Hot Chili Peppers have recorded albums there.
When Kayslee and Jack Joseph Puig collaborated together, JJP remarked about what a beautiful voice Kayslee had, making his job much easier when it came to editing. This is no small praise coming from such an accomplished producer who has worked with the world’s most prominent talent. Kayslee and JJP made a great team, as is evident when you hear “Girls’ Night In”.
John Winfield, Publisher of Fine Magazine, a lifestyle publication stated, "A star is definitely born! I heard a sampling of songs from Kayslee's upcoming EP release and I have to say move over Madonna and Katy Perry. She's unique, her voice is compelling, she's sassy, tall and beautiful and commands a stunning stage presence. Kayslee's global fan base will love this one! I won't be surprised if this record goes Multi-Platinum. Watch out for this artist!"
Kayslee was born into a close family where music and dance was an ongoing theme. About her family, Kayslee says, “We’re all a really loud, entertaining family and we’re all singers so we go out to eat and I swear whenever we’re at a restaurant we end up singing some musical theater song!” Having been raised in a musical family, Kayslee hopped up on stage at five and has never looked back. “I love being on stage. I’m not afraid of performing. Some have warned me about going on tour, but to me it sounds like the best thing ever.”
Growing up, Kayslee also pursued an acting and modeling career making her a multifaceted talent. At age seven Kayslee landed her first national television commercial. By the time she was sixteen, Kayslee had appeared in over twenty-five commercials and had established herself as a respected print model. The next thing Kayslee knew, she had earned campaigns with the likes of Billabong, Levis, Kohl’s and Teen Magazine, ultimately leading to her role with fashion designer Lauren Elaine. Kayslee’s work has also caught the attention of The William Morris Agency.
Even though Kayslee has been successful as both an actress and a model, her first love is her music. Inspired by such artists as Pink, Gwen Stefani and Alanis Morisette, Kayslee says that she has felt a connection to Pink’s music that started when she was eight. “Pink has a bit of an edge to her, and as I’ve gotten older, I’ve got a bit of an edge to me too. I have a sassy side.” Listeners will quickly figure this out for themselves. At twenty-one, Kayslee is no stranger to the sometimes eye-rolling drama surrounding friends and boyfriends. After the collapse of her record deal with Hollywood Records, Kayslee found herself in the middle of an internet controversy. “I know I come across in a certain way, and for a while people saw me as a model, but I’ve been really honest. I’m an open book.” It is that candor that makes Kayslee so relatable to Generation Y. Looking back, Kayslee describes her experiences as both humbling and life-altering and provided her with rich material for writing original songs which set her apart from other artists.
After a brief hiatus from glittering LA life, Kayslee has completed work on recording an EP for LuxeGlobal Records. She recently performed the ultimate public feat by singing the National Anthem at a NFL Charger game in front of 60,000 strong in her hometown of San Diego. Kayslee's worldwide fan base anxiously awaits the release of her new record.
Kayslee continues to be a role model for young women globally and says about her life, “It’s a blessing and I thank God every day.”
