Kaylee Bell is an accomplished young, modern country singer who trades in authentic and energetic anthems of empowerment. With a determination that carried her from small South Island town of Waimate, New Zealand to the international stage, Kaylee is a virtual veteran of the country music scene, picking up her first guitar at age 4.
In a scene increasingly influenced by fleeting trends, Kaylee delivers a strong country music voice, paired with an energetic live show that channels the likes of icons like Sheryl Crow and Carrie Underwood. Kaylee was invited to perform #1 US single ‘WE WERE US’ with International Superstar KEITH URBAN on his Light The Fuse Tour of Australia in 2014 and again on his 2016 ripCORD World Tour at the infamous 'Cake Tin' arena in Wellington, NZ.
Kaylee has won the prestigious Toyota Star Maker in Tamworth, Australia (previous winners KEITH URBAN, LEE KERNAGHAN) picked up Best Female Country Artist at the NZCM Awards in 2013/14, US Unsigned Only Overall Grand Prize Winner and won a Tui Award at the Vodafone NZ Music Awards for Best NZ Country Album.
Kaylee moved to Australia having just turned 22 to carve out a career as Country Artist and has played the Global Artist Showcase in NASHVILLE three times, opened for ALAN JACKSON, LEE KERNAGHAN, THE McCLYMONTS, MORGAN EVANS and played mainstage at every Country Music Festival in Australia including Deni Ute Muster, Gympie Muster, Mud Bulls Music and CMC Rocks.
Bell has had over Top 10 singles on the Australian Country Charts with recent single PIECES written and released with fellow Toyota Star Maker JARED PORTER going straight to No #1 on radio charts across Australia. The song also picked up the US UNSIGNED ONLY Competition Overall prize from over 10, 000 entries of all genres of music and was the first time anyone outside USA has won the award. It also won NZ APRA BEST COUNTRY SONG 2015.
Her single That’s What I Call Crazy is one of the Top 10 Most Played Country Songs of 2016 and Kaylee spent a summer in Nashville where she was invited to APRA’s Song Hub and wrote with some of Australia and America's top song writers (Potbellez, 5 Seconds Of Summer).
