German artist and songwriter Kahlla, aka Freya Volk, was born in Amsterdam and raised somewhere in the nomansland of South West Germany. Having outgrown her rural hometown, she up and left aged 18. Now based in London she merges her classical upbringing with dreamy soundscapes, electronic drum grooves and layered vocals to create intimate and vulnerable pop songs. Inspired by years of writing poetry, Kahlla’s descriptive style and ‘bare-all’ lyricism will throw the listener head first into her world; each song like a little photo book consisting of memories passed.
After her track ‘Small’ already received support from BBC Introducing The South (Track of the Day and Live Lounge session) and various blogs, earning her comparisons to the likes of Meadowlark and The Japanese House, Kahlla will be releasing her new single Sense of Self on 29th January. The EP of the same name is set for release on 20th March, with a headline gig at London's Servant Jazz Quarters scheduled 7th April.
