Kaya Stewart Shares Her New EP ‘Miss Kaya’ With the World
Kaya Stewart has just released her new EP that is meant to reintroduce herself to the world.
Her EP, Miss Kaya, has a total of six songs on it. The singer was born in London and raised in Los Angeles. She grew up surrounded by music and began songwriting at six years old. Stewart’s talent became evident with her song, “In Love With A Boy,” in 2014. After the release of her self-titled debut album in 2016, Stewart toured across the US. That tour included performing on the Warped Tour, making her the youngest female artist to participate in the iconic touring festival.
The singer opened up about creating her EP, saying, “Making this EP was a breakthrough moment for me. It’s a perfect image of where my life was at that point. I’m so excited that this is how I get to introduce myself to the world again.”
The EP includes her single “California,” which is a genuine coming-of-age anthem meant to speak on the universal struggles and tribulations associated with growing up, being in relationships, and becoming an adult in an often fake and broken world.
It also includes “I Hate Falling in Love.” Kaya shared what the story was behind writing the song. She said, “I wrote ‘I Hate Falling in Love’ with my brother and my boyfriend (ironically). Falling in love is such a huge part of growing up and it evokes so many emotions that sometimes it’s overwhelming. I wrote the song about all those awkward and scary moments that come along with it that made me feel like ‘I Hate Falling In Love.’”
