- Kaley Pearson -
Kaley Pearson is no newbie to the Nashville entertainment scene, even at the age of 15. While there’s a talented new crop of artists on the rise, this young performer has the unique advantage of being a contending vocal powerhouse, her voice being described as “a mixture of a young Bonnie Raitt and Alison Krauss rolled into one.” A seasoned entertainer, her accolades include a TN Music Award for Album of the Year, a TCGMA Award for Female Singer of the Year, as well as two nominations for Josie Awards for Young Female Singer of the Year and Youth Singer of the Year. Notable venue performances include the Hard Rock Memphis, Opry Mills Nashville, Tin Roof, the Bluebird Cafe, and 3rd and Lindsley, and more.
While she self-identifies as a country artist, her influences range everywhere from Kelsea Ballerini to Pink, from Charlie Puth to Lewis Capaldi. Additionally, her music doesn’t walk in the lines common for girls her age.
“I am a young artist who sings and writes about important social issues,” she says, her passion for sharing her distinctive perspective with the world apparent through her already-released music.
She recorded her first self-written album, Perfectly Imperfect, at age 12; her melodies are catchy and sing-able, lyrics are reflective of a writer much older than her age would suggest allowing her vulnerability to come out in the writing room. Kaley has had the opportunity to work with artists who’ve helped hone her sound and solidify her as a rising talent.
“My inspiration comes from day-to-day things I’m dealing with, current events, social issues or topics that others deal with, or just what I’m feeling at the time.”
This realness is one of the major factors that draw Kaley’s fanbase to her songs. She is cultivating a solid social media following, one that will surely be thrilled with her 2019 plans which include the release of a brand new EP.
“I have just finished vocals [on the EP],” she affirms, the announcement of the release pending on her website www.kaleypearsonmusic.com. With plans for new music, new songwriting sessions, and touring in her future, Kaley Pearson is carving out her place in the new wave of country music talent knocking on doors on Music Row.
