"Interview: Kayla Bliss"

Kayla Bliss “The Love Rebel” from XTM.Nation (formerly Xterminator Productions) is about to drop her first EP on the world. Kayla started getting notice from the reggae world after her duet with Jesse Royal on I Need You last year. Kayla has a powerful voice with a great smile. XTM.Nation has allowed United Reggae to premier a video for their readers. The video is an acoustic version of Kayla’s first single Tears of a Soldier. The acoustic video was shot in the 'chapel' at Anchor Studios and features guitarist Monty Savory.



What inspired you to pursue music as a career?

When I was growing up my father was a lead singer in a reggae band. I remember being in the studio with him and I realized that is what I wanted to do. I never developed a passion for anything else.

I know you are Brooklyn born but what are your ties to Jamaica?

Both of my parents are Jamaican. I was born in Jamaica and started school there. I moved to Brooklyn when I was 8.

How did you begin working with XTM.Nation?

My aunt did background vocals for Fatis. My mom was in JA on vacation and wanted me to come down to meet Fatis. He did not believe that I could write as fast as I did. We went to the studio one day and I voiced three songs. That was the beginning of my relationship with XTM.Nation.

What was it like working with Fatis Burrell as a young artist?

I think I didn’t really know who it was I was working with until a couple months in. I started doing research on Fatis. I was getting messages online and people came into the studio and said how lucky I was. For me it was like working with family. After my research I realized it was a big deal to work with Fatis. I feel honored to have worked with him.


You recently released “Tears of a Soldier”. What is the meaning of the song?

It’s an unconventional type of love song. It’s based on true life. You may think it’s about an intimate love with someone who makes it hard to love them because they were hurt before. When I originally wrote the song I based it on my relationship with my dad. I just changed it to be a little more relatable and less personal. It’s really about loving someone that is hard to love and being emotional about it.

I hear that your EP “Love Rebel” will soon be released. What can you share about it?

Love Rebel is different and fun. The concept is the idea that being a woman you can be emotional without being irrational. You can be sexy without being a skank. You can be soft without being weak.

After the EP drops what are your future plans?

My plan is to be on stage as often as I possibly can. For whomever I can be on stage for in any country, city or town as long as I get the opportunity to tell my story.
