Kayla started her career performing oldies music since the age of 9. Now at 16 she is making the transformation from Kayla Starr, the Oldies singer, to Kayla Stockert, Singer, Songwriter and Musician. She's performed at the Apollo Theater, The Highline Ballroom in NYC, The Friars Club, Dunkin Donuts Arena in Providence RI, Jones Beach Nikon Side Stage, Montauk Music Festival and many other venues country wide!
Among her achievements to date, Kayla was a finalist on the X-Factor as well as MSG Varsity Talent Show. She has also performed for Governor Andrew Cuomo and was also thrilled to meet and spent time with Connie Francis who assisted Kayla with learning Italian for her song, Mama.
In the fall of 2012, Kayla released her debut EP "Castles in the Sand" which continues to be played on over 50 independent radio stations worldwide.
Most recently, Kayla performed at sleep away camps all summer long for thousands of kids. She is currently working with some amazing songwriters and producers to write and record her own original material. These songs will combine her love for oldies with a more contemporary sound that she has dubbed "Retro Infused Pop".
She contributed her voice work for a major toy company on a new product that will be coming out in 2014!
Kayla will also be making her acting debut in an independent film The Grief Of Others shooting here in New York this spring.
