Biography

Kal Lavelle is an Irish born singer songwriter now living in London. Her songs are instantly captivating, with a voice that Alex Zane (Channel 4) praised as simply "beautiful".

Kal began playing guitar after winning a thousand pounds in a Mars Bar when she was 10 yrs old. With the money, she bought her mother a washing machine and for herself, her very first guitar.

On the 1st of January 2012, The Sunday Mirror (UK National Newspaper) listed Kal in the top 5 'Hot for 2012' ones to watch list. This was an incredible start to the year!

Her single 'Breakfast At Tiffanys' was chosen as 'Single of the Week' on iTunes, which in turn, saw her debut EP ‘Shivers’ climb to #5 in the iTunes Singer/Songwriter album chart. The iTunes US & Japanese stores also featured her in the 'New & Noteworthy' section.

Three of her tracks have featured on Tom Robinson's BBC RADIO 6 show & her song 'Downstairs' was selected for the BBC Introducing Podcast. She was recently asked as a special guest on the show, which was broadcast Nationwide.

Artful (Dodger's) Mark Hill was so impressed by Kal's vocals, he asked her to feature on his track 'Could Just Be The Bassline'. The track featured on Music Week's prestigious 'Playlist', was Dj MistaJam's (Radio 1 & Radio 1xtra) 'Jam Hot record of the week' & was playlisted on Radio 1xtra. (With the video on rotation on MTV.)

Kal spent last year supporting her friend & chart topper Ed Sheeran (Atlantic Records) on his sold out UK tour and Irish tour. This year 2012, he asked her to support him at his biggest headline show in Thetford Forrest, Suffolk, playing to a Sold Out arena of 10,000 people!

In Nov 2012, another highlight presented itself in the form of the taste maker himself Perez Hilton championing Kal and blogging about her music, calling it "Exquisitely beautiful & raw, it's as if she's talking directly to you!".

Future plans consist of more releases, more gigging... Oh and saving to buy her mother a new washing machine, we hear the old one's getting a bit rusty! ;)
