About Kaiya on the Mountain

Kaiya on the Mountain

If Florence & The Machine and Alabama Shakes had a baby, Kaiya On The Mountain would be their love child.

This Portland Oregon based folk-rock band consists of singer-songwriter Kaiya Pelletier, lead guitarist Justyn Lewis, bassist Matt Haugen, keyboardist Jack Lund and drummer Liam Walker. Kaiya started as a solo artist, with a strong presence on Youtube and over 1.5 million views on her channel.

In October of 2014 Kaiya self-released her debut EP "Full Of Creatures", which was produced by Adam Selzer and featured Blind Pilot members Luke Ydstie and Katie Claborn. Kaiya On The Mountain was formed in the summer of 2015. During 2016, the band kept a very busy schedule, performing back to back shows, including music festivals, TV, and radio stations. Additionally, much of 2016, they were in and out of the studio working on their debut EP. In the latter part of the year, the band released two singles, "Karma" and "Risky" and on November 18th, 2016 "Talking Wild" was released worldwide. Since the release, the album has received a lot of radio play and the song "Let's Go Out" was televised nationally during an NBA playoffs game. For the remainder of the year, the band looks forward to a West Coast tour and releasing their debut LP.

Kaiya On The Mountain is a vibrant collection of genres that brings the best of folk-rock, singer-songwriter and jam-blues together in one captivating project. This eclectic sound is delivered in a high energy live performance filled with emotion and raw talent. This youthful band has the music, the energy and the looks to back up their passion. They put on an unforgettable show that you won't want to miss. So if you like alternative folk-rock music with a southern flare, stick around. You might just fall in love.
