Welcome back to the dHarmic Evolution podcast with me James Kevin O’Connor, singer/songwriter and master storyteller. In today’s episode, I have with me a beautiful young lady who discovered her passion at the early age of 5, and started writing songs at 8---Kylie Odetta.
Kylie Odetta from South Carolina has always known that she wanted to be a musician. From the first time she went on stage and performed at her school’s talent show, she knew right away she wanted to do that for the rest of her life.
Growing up, her musical influences varied. She listened to some Ed Sheeran, Elton John, and she’s been digging jazz! Kylie keeps herself busy nowadays by playing live around the North and South Carolina area. She’s also opened for a lot of big names such as Gavin DeGraw, Colbie Caillat, Austin Mahone, and the like. How awesome is that!
It’s so refreshing to have spoken with Kylie, as her music is top-notch--plus the girl knows her social media marketing! How much more effective can this girl get?
Listen to the entire interview to learn more about Kylie!
On this episode:
You’ll learn how songwriting was for her---as a child!
Learn how Kylie was bullied for being “different” because she was more interested in music than caring about who’s popular
