She’s seasoned by time spent in Ireland studying traditional singing and years touring with sister-brother duo The Native Sibling. Now based in Seattle, WA, Kaylee Elizabeth is making a debut on her own with a new name, a new sound, a new process, and even a new instrument. Her debut single under her own name and from these sessions, “Passing Through,” draws inspiration from looking out the van window on tour through middle America. Kaylee Elizabeth explains: "You get many small glimpses of the physical structures and people as you're driving past or staying for only a short period of time. There are buildings thriving with activity and others lying in disrepair. The same physical place can hold many different times of growth and decay, bustle and silence. It makes me reflect on the fact that our time here is but a breath, but that there are many beautiful things that can be passed down from generation to generation." It doesn’t take knowing her past work to hear that Kaylee Elizabeth is doing something notable. From singing at Galway open mics, to writing and touring with her brother, she is now seamlessly emerging as a writer in a singular voice in her first album due 2021. The Guardian on “Passing Through” "stark and beautiful, acoustic finger-picking adorned with feedback and backwards guitar, its tempo shifting, her voice betraying a period studying traditional folk singing in Ireland. It’s a tantalising prospect for an album" // Deep In The Music on “Passing Through” "sophisticated and simple guitar playing and beautiful singing”… "very expressive singing without breathiness and cheesy production, I respect that." // If It’s Too Loud on “Passing Through” "modern take on traditional Irish folk" //
