English singer songwriter Kayleigh Joy, grew up in the 90s, inspired by the likes of the Spice Girls and Britney Spears and has acknowledged that they gave her a funny feeling from a young age that she would become a singer one day.
Kayleigh’s music has a modern sound, with her upcoming debut album 11:11, featuring a mix of synth pop with a rock edge. This isn’t surprising as her dream collaboration is with Pink, an idol that has had a major impact on her musical style.
Kayleigh landed on her feet after being introduced to Andy Whitmore back in 2020 and signed to his OMNIVI3E Label in 2021, with dreams of one day performing her single “Thank You” at London’s O2 Arena.
With her album on the way, Kayleigh is continuing on creating more music with her team and is looking forward to bringing her music into the world.
