Singer/songwriter Kaila Yu released her first single in March of 2002 with both songs on it being written by her. The CD was produced by Bruno Talledo. She also had two featured songs on the Import Jams Compilation,
which premiered at #1 in record stores in the Bay Area. Kaila recently opened for Rap Artist Coolio at the Import Extreme Car Show in Honolulu, Hawaii, and is currently embarking on a hectic schedule touring across the country to promote her new, self titled album.
As if that were not enough, Kaila is also very much in demand as a model, first making her name as the "Most Searched Import Model" online and is currently featured as a character in Street Racing Syndicate, a videogame
for Playstation 2, has been featured in the pages of FHM magazine, and has released her own 2003 calendar. Her huge fanbase who has been fixtated on her modeling careerr now eagerly awaits her music release. Beautiful enough to
be a successful model and talented enough to write and sing in her sweet and soulful voice, her Asian inspired music cleverly blended with modern R&B, Kaila is clearly establishing her own unique identity as she crosses
Musical borders and arrives at what promises to be the start of an immensely successful career. Her international appeal is also widened by that fact that she can sing fluently in her native language, mandarin and has plans to
release tracks in mandarin. She is a "triple threat" excelling in music, acting, and modeling, her past theatrical credits include working with Kurt
Russell and Scott Speedman in the feature film Dark Blue and co-starring in Jade Buddha, a soap opera airing in China.
Kaila acted as executive producer on her current album release. She overlooked every aspect of the project and wrote or co-wrote almost all of the songs on her album. She says "I truly believe that I need to be completely involved in the creation of my music from beginning and end
because I want the audience to hear what I have to say, not what someone else wrote. My favorite song on the cd is "Just A Dream", it shows a side of me that I try to hide and I recorded all my vocals for that song in a home
studio, completely alone, so that song is truly and extension of myself. I think the song that best represents me. Kaila's tracks were produced by the track master Mr Lew, who has tracks on the B2K and IMX projects amd
mastered by The Gubnah, who has worked on the platinum Vanessa Willams album. As an artist she is not at all afraid to express her sexuality and isn't overly concerned
with staying with the norm or listening to what others have to say.
Born in Taipei, Kaila moved to California when she was three and got into music at an early age. She began taking piano lessons at the age of 10, enrolled in jazz and ballet classes and toured with a Chinese Folk Dance group. In her youth she was passionate about creating and producing and
would act as executive producer for showcases and plays for the neighbourhood and school. Although her dream was always to be a singer, Kaila pursued acting and modeling as she attended UCLA as an Economics Major. She also enrolled in
singing classes and joined the choir, and in her spare time continued to work on her music.
She auditioned for and won the lead in a musical called "No Turning Back", the prophetic story of a young girl who wished to pursue a singing career over the objections of her parents. The director of the play encouraged
Kaila to pursue music and set her up with a gig to perform at Club Soho in Los Angeles. Singing live on stage for the first time in front of an enthusiastic crowd was the catalyst that ignited Kaila¹s passion to perform, and from that moment on she began actively pursuing a musical
