A bold and charismatic performer, Kaylar has spent the last decade shaping her musical personality on the saxophone, fuelled by a visceral fascination with one of the world's most iconic instruments.
With a Bachelor's Degree in Music from the University of British Columbia under her belt, Kaylar floats through boundaries of genre with a sultry sound and uninhibited ferocity. She studied her craft with Vancouver-based sax-masters Julia Nolan and Colin MacDonald. Her influences draw from many diverse sources, including the classic husk of Plas Johnson, the soaring sweetness of Federico Mondelci, and the modern audacity of innovators like
Moon Hooch and Too Many Zooz.
She plays to evoke emotion from listeners,
to connect in ways beyond words, and
simply for the love of it.
You can most often catch Kaylar performing live as half of the female frontman duo in 5-piece funk band Raincity, an active group from Vancouver, BC. With growing popularity, Raincity is quickly becoming a must-see experience with a unique and fresh twist.
