At first glance Kallie Lytel seems like your average teenager. In fact before graduating Grass Valley High in 2008, she was actually a member of the Cheerleading squad who dated the Star Football player! However, hiding under her girl next-door persona and typical teen existence lie’s an unprecedented and extremely unique singing talent that far surpasses her physical age in both emotional portrayal and raw ability. Picture the pop sensibility of Rhiana combined with the soulful crooning of Fiona Apple and the sensitivity/youthfulness of Colby Calliet, that’s the only way to describe the depth of this young singers incredible voice. Although Kallie has sung all over the west coast, perhaps her most important performance was in her fourth grade year of elementary school. Being a huge supporter of Kallies singing voice her fourth grade teacher Ms. Hannerink convinced Kallie to perform her rendition of Britney Spears “oops I did it again” at the school talent show. From that point on Kallie was hooked on music and in other words her passion was born. Kallie went on to sing and perform in all her school choirs and even record some songs with her uncle. However in 2008, Kallie was discovered on myspace by Hollywood based Producers Mark Jackson and Ian Scott. Soon after the trio went to work on four new original songs. The result was an amazing demo that captures Kallies unique sound and encompasses not only the beauty and emotion of Kallies voice but also, her songwriting ability and life experiences.
