New artist Kayla Waters is an elite pianist, composer and producer. Being Kim Water’s daughter, she grew up in a jazz household and “got into music” very early: Only 10-months old, baby K. regularly found her way into the living room and began “playing” the family’s Brentwood acoustic piano. Her parents enrolled her in piano lessons at the age of six. Kayla instantly fell in love, began to master her musical gifts and, while watching her father’s career unfold, soon decided to pursue a career as a solo jazz pianist. She obtained her Bachelor Music Degree in Piano Performance (Summa Cum Laude) at the Howard University. In addition to being featured on several of her father’s albums, she has performed with and without him at renowned concerts and jazz festivals worldwide. And she has also played and worked with musical giants such as Stevie Wonder, Patrice Rushen, Avery Sunshine, and Maysa Leak, to name a few. Kayla’s gifts also garnered her national recognition on the BET television network’s highly acclaimed “Black Girls Rock” awards show.
