This Portland Oregon based folk-rock band consists of singer-songwriter Kaiya Pelletier, lead guitarist Justyn Lewis, bassist Matt Haugen, rhythm guitarist Miguel Hernandez, Kalila Henkin on keys and drummer Liam Walker.
Kaiya started as a solo artist, with a strong presence on Youtube and over 1.5 million views on her channel. Her self-released debut EP "Full Of Creatures", was produced by Adam Selzer (M. Ward, Decemberists, Fleet Foxes, Peter Buck) and featured Blind Pilot members Luke Ydstie and Katie Claborn. Kaiya On The Mountain was formed in the summer of 2015. After back to back touring, they released their debut EP in 2016 titled 'Talking Wild'. Since the release, the album has received a lot of radio play and the song "Let's Go Out" was televised nationally during an NBA playoffs game. The band is scheduled to release their debut LP in late 2018.
Kaiya On The Mountain is a vibrant collection of genres that brings the best of folk-rock, singer-songwriter and jam-blues together in one captivating project. This eclectic sound is delivered in a high energy live performance filled with emotion and raw talent. This youthful band has the music, the energy and the looks to back up their passion. They put on an unforgettable show that you won't want to miss. So if you like alternative folk-rock music with a southern flare, stick around. You might just fall in love.
