Kayla Painter

Bristol based musician, producer and visual artist Kayla Painter has spent the last few years carving a solid reputation herself around London and the South West.

Heavily influenced by Bristol’s legendary bass heritage, Kayla’s sound draws from techno, garage and post dub; she crafts her experimental soundscapes from intriguing and restless rhythms, surging deep bass lines and warm washes of cloudy ambience.

In 2014 Kayla expanded her live show to include a dual screen setup, creating beautiful and immersive depth. The hypnotising visual show, crafted with the help of Jason Baker (The Crisis Project), draws on themes and aesthetics seen in her artwork.

In February 2015 Kayla was selected amongst 12 other female musicians from the UK to be part of a composition residency led by Beth Orton.  The residency was a week long ending in a performance where she collaborated with other musicians as well as Beth Orton on one track.

A welcome female addition to the Electronic scene, Kayla Painter has performed at renowned festivals such as; Pulse, Simple Things, Supernormal and Dot to Dot. Supports for HK119, Tim Hecker, Barbara Morgenstern, Patten, Nite Jewel, Blondes, and the legendary Afrika Bambaataa have also been well received.

Building on the success of her last release A Very New Everything, Kayla Painter released Ga Ga at the beginning of the year. Accompanied by a striking video, this releases paves the way for Kayla to dominate in 2015.

Aside from her live music Kayla is also a Module Leader and Lecturer at The University of South Wales, on the Creative Sound and Music undergraduate course.
