Album Notes
For Kaylan Mackinnon it’s all about creating that perfect song, or at least that one you want on repeat all day long.

“I love writing lyrics that listeners can relate to or play at any given occasion. The songs that don’t just touch the tip of your feelings, but can kiss the inside of your soul.”

This 23-year-old songwriter grew up in countryside of Ontario. “My sisters and I were never allowed to use the word bored growing up, so we learned to entertain ourselves since we didn’t live near the city, and well that’s when music came along.”

From the young age of 13, Mackinnon began playing guitar, singing and writing her own songs. Her first major exposure came at 18 when she was nominated at the Toronto International Music Awards as Best Young Songwriter by a panel of judges (including Juno-nominated singer- songwriter Jully Black) for her original song Remember Me.

The following year, Mackinnon placed as one of the Top 10 musicians for the worldwide Hard Rock Rising Contest in March of 2014, where she was flown to perform at the famous Hard Rock Cafe in the heart of downtown Toronto.

At the end of summer 2015 Mackinnon was contacted by Soul Surfer director-producer Sean McNamara to use her original song Espresso Kiss in the Hallmark feature film Just in Time for Christmas starring Eloise Mumford, William Shatner and Christopher Lloyd. The song has now generated over 230,000 streams online.

“The movie Soul Surfer is one of my favourite films, so as you can imagine this opportunity was beyond exciting for me. Having my original song featured in a film created by a director I really looked up to was a dream come true.”

This past May, Mackinnon flew back to Toronto to play at Canadian Music Week where she had the opportunity to showcase her original music, attend conferences and network with industry professionals.

Vancouver has become home to Mackinnon, where she has been working with west coast writer-producers Winston Hauschild and Troy Samson on her upcoming record, set to be released early next summer of 2017. Her latest single Espresso Kiss was played across Canadian radio stations this past summer and she set out to Vancouver and Toronto stations to play and do interviews in light of the single release.

“This year has been exceptionally busy but in the best way possible. I’m always co-writing with different artists, playing shows and finding ways to challenge myself as an artist and to take my career to the next level.”

You can find Mackinnon playing shows in the Vancouver, Toronto and LA area or interacting with fans on her social media platforms, which are listed below.
