      I really enjoyed hearing Kayla Ringelheim for the first time and will watch for her again. Vance Gilbert also put on a good show until he pushed the microphone away. Perhaps the venue was small enough that the audience in the room could hear, but without the mic, he made himself inaudible. Artists who use this service need to understand that when they do that, they are saying I don't care if you can hear me, because we can't.

A singer-songwriter native of the Boston area who now calls Providence home, Kayla Ringelheim is a young woman with impressive piano chops, ancient tales to tell, and a voice of honey to tell them with. She grew up surrounded by the vibrant musical culture of Harvard Square’s fabled Club Passim, where she played her first open mic at age 13. With the immense power of connection and expression in music being instilled in her at a young age, Kayla conjures memories of Joni Mitchell and Suzanne Vega with a modern edge of pop and jazz.

Kayla currently leads a full life. With passions that venture outside the realm of music, she recently graduated from Brown University with a degree in Human Biology and works full-time at a local food non-profit, where she is more likely to be seen with fresh produce and farmers than musical instruments. Nevertheless, Kayla has always valued music and her other passions equally, with each constantly thriving off of the other. Her most recent CD release, Wandering Feet, is a remarkable display of Kayla’s artful impulse to capture life’s meanderings in song.

About Kayla’s new album, set to release November 2012, acclaimed songwriter and performer Vance Gilbert says: “Each of these songs is a snapshot - perfect short stories, sung by a guileless, wounded angel. She's wise and surprised, thankful and injured, warm and resolved, all at the same time. Kayla does in four songs what some of us singer songwriters only feign in a full career. You'll say, ‘Man, where's she been all this time’. Never mind. She has arrived."

Kayla has been a finalist in the John Lennon Songwriting Competition and was voted “Audience Choice” at the Boston Folk Festival Songwriting Competition in 2008. With two other recordings, “Tides” (2005 LP) and “Play” (2008 EP), Kayla’s upcoming release is her most striking yet.
