"On 'We're Okay,' Kailey Prior offers up a handful of pleasing folk tunes that make the head think hard and the heart beat harder. She's on fire with talent, nurturing a signature sound humming with warmth in every single element from her voice to her arrangements to her lyrics." - The Music Mermaid, Summer 2019
A lover of storytelling, Kailey’s songwriting is reminiscent of Brandi Carlile, Joni Mitchell, and Ingrid Michaelson. Folky vocal inflection and creative jabs at the patriarchy adorn many of her tunes, while a deep appreciation for the power of vulnerability and introspection is a driving force throughout her creative works.
While born and raised in Massachusetts, Kailey has found a home in Brooklyn NYC where she enjoys eating, sleeping, and flirting with the many musical instruments that are tucked into all corners of her home. Well versed on guitar, piano, violin, bass, and trombone, Kailey can play over 20 instruments, including the saxophone, marimba, harp, and double bass, and is always looking to try any new ones that cross her path. She often is joined onstage by the great Aya Kato (keys/bass/melodica) and can be seen in venues around Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Boston.
