 With a deeply soulful voice and wisdom far beyond her years, 15-year-old Kaiya Gamble is a soulful pop singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist based in Calgary, Alberta. Landing somewhere between Alessia Cara and Sara Bareilles, her music has been described as a beacon of light containing an undeniable message of empowerment, inclusivity, and hope.

Her latest single, “Sweet Talker,” was released on March 30. The track combines an upbeat, playful sound with empowering lyrics that cut to the core. “Sweet Talker” is a song about giving your heart to someone and then realizing it’s all been a lie. While the song tells the story of heartbreak, it’s also about healing and taking back control of your happiness.

The story within “Sweet Talker” is a journey. At the beginning, the other person has all the power. They broke your heart, never loved you and that hurts, a lot. By the end, there’s a self realization that you are the person in charge. You’re better off without the toxicity and you weren’t to blame. This song is a goodbye to the toxic people in and around your life, and a hello to the power you hold within yourself!” – Kaiya

Finding early success with her 2020 debut single “Speak Out” premiering on CBC Radio’s ‘Key of A,’ the song placed in the Top 3 in the 2021 International Women’s Freedom Song Contest, received radio play on Alberta’s top radio stations, and was nominated for Pop Single of the Year at the 2021 YYC Music Awards. Kaiya continued her rise, working with JUNO Award-winning producers, Spencer Cheyne and Justin Kudding on her sophomore single “I’m In It,” which is her highest streaming single to date.

Kaiya has already performed for thousands of people, including on stage with JUNO / CCMA Award winner Brett Kissel, Paul Brandt’s ‘Not My City’ function, and headlining at Hayley Wickenheiser’s Wickfest three years in a row. She frequently performs in support of many charitable causes, including a monthly virtual performance for the Cancer Ward in the Randwick Children’s Hospital in Sydney, Australia. She also hosted her inaugural online benefit concert, Kaiya Live, in the fall of 2021. The concert was streamed worldwide and raised funds for three charitable organizations. Her charitable commitment led Kaiya to be the first ever Canadian recipient of the Women of Inspiration youth excellence award recognizing her work in music and philanthropy.

Kaiya recently was named the Standout Artist in Lawson Studio’s National contest, Becoming. She is also the youngest artist to be featured in HOLR Magazine’s ‘In the Mirror’ Podcast and was nominated for the Prophets of Music Emerging Artist award at the 2021 YYC Music Awards.

I hope with my music, I can connect people with the deepest parts of themselves, and they’ll know they aren’t alone. Everyone’s welcome.” – Kaiya

With her inclusive personality and incredibly soulful songs, Kaiya is on the path to becoming Canada’s next breakout pop artist.
