Band Details


From the Promoter


Born into a very musical family, Kayla began singing at the age of 3 with her mom around Edmonton at local events and venues. Heavily immersed in piano and vocal training, she excelled in talent competitions and festivals throughout her teenage years.

Kayla has been primarily focused on teaching voice for the last 8 years, currently working full time at Long and McQuade. She is delighted to share music with students of different levels and ages. However Kayla’s truest passion for music lies in her original writing and she is finally working on her first EP. Her love for tormented yet beautiful harmonies and heart wrenching hooks, paired with her earnest delivery make for a very raw and almost spiritual experience. Her songwriting intent is to aide in healing or celebrating. Her graceful but formidable command of the piano and her pure vocal conviction seem to transcend time.


The Gentle Yeti is an energetic and eccentric folk rock singer/songwriter. Hailing from Edmonton, Alberta, The Gentle Yeti's main goal is to connect with people by giving voice to the struggles we all face and instilling hope in the listener's ears. Through heartfelt, personal and vulnerable lyrics paired with a strong voice that's brimming with emotion, The Gentle Yeti's hope is to put a smile on your face and lift your spirits up, wherever you're at in your life


Ben Hooke is a singer/songwriter from Edmonton, Alberta. He explores a vintage sound of rock inspired folk music. He started at the age of twelve with a dream of playing the lead guitar in a rock band, slowly developed new taste in music, especially folk. As time went on began to dabble in singing and eventually found himself to be a solo act.
Ben is looking to build his career and play both the biggest stages and the dustiest bars.

With the release of his first live album and a studio album on the way, Ben is preparing to ramp up his music and performing before he leaves the prairies for the bustling streets of Toronto.
