In The Spotlight

Kayla Diamond – “50/50”

Born into an orthodox Jewish family, this Canadian singer and songwriter was supposed to become a lawyer, but fate intervened. A dream gave her a melody and lyrics started pouring out, resulting in writing “Crazy”, which won Slaight Music’s “It’s Your Shot” competition in 2015. A multi-instrumentalist, she blends pop with rich electronic elements and debuted with her 2017 EP “Beautiful Chaos”.

Turning back to her songwriter-self with an emotional vulnerability and a minimal production, her new single exposes life and love with a daring sensitivity. Starting with vintage guitar strums and cheeky handclaps, she narrates the need to show yourself some love and remove any toxicity from your life. And with fiery drums and her wistful vocals raising the chorus, this is a 100% pure gem.
