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.

This concert has been canceled due to weather. Yes, Kennary is pronounced like the bird. Four years after picking up her first guitar at the age of 10, Hadley Kennary started writing music. Now 20, she has released a self-titled EP and a full-length album, and she has dedicated her time to studying music at Berklee College of Music. Her sound is refreshing and real. Her music mixes the honesty of Sara Bareilles with the mellow cleverness of Ingrid Michaelson, finished off with defining harmonies similar to the Indigo Girls.

She has graced stages around the country like The Bitter End in New York City, Uncommon Ground in Chicago, and Club Passim in Cambridge as well as festivals like Bucktown Garden Fest in Chicago and Boston Book Festival 2013 in Copley Square. Hadley shows promise for growing as a musician and a person in the coming years as she attends Berklee.
