Too Broke Too Busy

Kylie Odetta

The song is soulful & jazzy with harmonies, saxophone, and lyrical goodness all woven together to create a fresh and “got it on repeat” vibe. Odetta wrote it based off of a conversation with her friend and then later created the arrangement with her band, otherwise known as the 'dream team’. It’s about the difficult, hilarious, inspiring, and relatable pursuit of following your dream. It’s full of confidence and charisma and reflects how much Kylie has grown as an artist and human.

"I asked a friend of mine to hang out one weekend and she answered that she was "too broke and too busy” to do anything. I jotted the phrase down because I found it super relatable and catchy and ended up writing the chorus of this song shortly after. I think we have all felt like that at some point or still currently do. So the song is coming from this kind of funny but honest place of what it looks like to chase dreams. The lyrics are all very personal to my own life experience and I hope to encourage people to laugh at themselves as well as find community as we relate. The pursuit of a dream is so worth it but it’s not always easy. I want this song to bring a certain lightness to that very struggle so that instead of crying in frustration, people are smiling and jamming out to it in their car, their room, at my show, or at a party with their friends.”

Like, Literally

Kylie Odetta

This new song is sassy and fun and I had the most freeing experience writing it with Danny Ross. ❤️ There are so many different sides to us as beautiful, complex human beings. Sometimes I’m hype and sometimes I’m mellow, sometimes I dress in all black and sometimes I wear florals, sometimes I laugh and sometimes I cry, sometimes I’m crazy and sometimes I’m calm as can be. It’s all me. Sometimes I make music that is soulful and jazzy and sometimes I write songs that are total pop jams. The awesome thing about being free? I don’t have to choose one or the other. I don’t have to limit or squash any part of myself because I’ve come to realize that every part of me is lovable. And so is every part of you. So I hope you listen to this song and feel the confidence and joy and freedom to dance to your own beat and let people see the real you, all of you. Cause you and me? We’re unique... like a t-Rex.

Under The Sun

Kylie Odetta

I wrote this song with Jacob & Sita Steele in Nashville, Tennessee the week of February 24th 2019. We had only just met that day and we wanted to write something fun for the summer - we started writing about the idea of a free spirited girl and I imagined her dancing around in the desert. There were a lot of personal touches within the lyrics that each of us connected to especially the line “open sky, I’m never on my own” as we all shared our faith and little bits of our stories with each other. Jacob built the track while Sita and I wrote lyrics and melody. We finished writing the song and I cut a rough vocal on it but when I heard it back later that night I was like “oh God” I need to re-record those. 😂 So before I left town we got together again and recorded the final vocals. It wasn’t until weeks later when I heard a finished version of the song that it hit me... this song was about me. It was exactly what I was experiencing in life at the time after coming out of an incredibly transformative experience in New York literally just days before writing the song with them. Every single word of the song felt more ME than I had ever felt before. I immediately knew I had to release the song as I found myself dancing to it in my room for hours and smiling at every single line. Every song that I write has a different process, a different story... but they each take on a life of their own. This one in particular helped me realize that sometimes we don’t even notice we’re right in the middle of something beautiful until we get a little time and space apart from it... and then when we look back at it or find it again, we appreciate it so much more.

FLAME

Kylie Odetta

"I wrote this song when I was sitting at my piano one day, crushed by the weight of the world and all of the hurting people in it. This world can be a dark and heavy place... but as I was sitting there, a voice popped into my head reminding me that it only takes one flicker of light to cut through the darkness. If you're in a pitch black room and you light a match, it will cut through the dark and be seen. Every. Single. Time. We have the ability to be that light. There is still hope. There is still love. This song is my heart for the world... my heart for you, written in lyrics and performed by a gospel choir, saxophone, piano, drums. I hope you'll listen to it as loud as you can on your late night drives back home... or gently in your headphones to remind you of the light when you wake up tomorrow morning. I hope you feel ignited by the fire inside you when you listen. And then I hope you fan that flame to everyone you meet. Thank you." -Kylie Odetta

High Dreamer EP / 2016

Kylie Odetta

"Providing a heavenly break from the earthbound, this slow burning electro ballad from Kylie Odetta conjures up the nuance of Lana Del Rey with even more pristine acoustic pop sensibilities. The track has a weightless, classical quality which suits the young songwriter’s dreamy imagery and highlights her velvety vocal presence." -Mike Olinger, The Wild Honey Pie, February 17 2016
