I’m Kayla Corrine and I’ve been in love with music since birth. I would call myself a soulful singer-songwriter and I tend to write mostly on acoustic guitar because I adore the raw, crystal clear sound of it. It relates directly to the lyrical content of my music itself – raw, honest, real, and quite clear. Everything about what I stand for is the truth. I write directly from my heart and soul in hopes of explaining myself through my art so that I myself can feel content and others can understand me as well as themselves, in a different perspective. Life is about learning and growing and that’s all I’m ever really trying to do through this incredibly wonderful art form known as music.

mïc is an electronic band from Boston composed of Tim Wolf on beats and percussion with Travis Yee and Josh Bordelon on synthesizers and vocals. Its music, created from synthesizers and electronic beats strung together with vocal melodies, is at times delicate and caressing and other times powerful and longing, or proud. Listeners have described the group as "mad-scientists" and "a different kind of band." Its songs put the listener in an explosion, a large cave submerged in water, or a dense jungle of furry flora. All three members of the band are students at Berklee College of Music, where they met and became friends.
