Los Angeles-based singer and songwriter, Kaya Stewart just dropped her new single, dedicated to the state that raised her, “California.” With the release of this new track, Stewart continues to redefine what it means to be a pop artist in today’s day and age. 

The English-American singer was born in London, England but was raised in LA. Growing up, Stewart was always surrounded by music. Her father, David A. Stewart, is the songwriter-producer-musician of 1980s band Eurythmics. At the young age of 6, Stewart began writing songs and experimenting with music. Eventually, the young artist found her place in the LA music scene, to later establish herself as an artist. 

In 2014 she broke into the music scene with her song “In Love With A Boy,” and later released her self-titled debut album in 2016. After a long term of touring, Stewart is back with her single “California.” 

She says exclusively to V, "‘California’ was one of the easiest songs to write. I had so much emotion that day and I knew exactly what I wanted to talk about. I had been listening to a lot of Frank Ocean when I was writing this record and was inspired by that feeling of a suburban hometown wonderland…I just sat at the piano and started playing those chords and it was literally done in a little over an hour. "

The single is an authentic coming-of-age anthem speaking to the universal trials and tribulations synonymous with growing up and dealing with relationships—adulthood in general—in an often fake and fractured world.
