Kaylee Bell


Kaylee Bell is a country-pop singer, which makes her a rarity in a local scene dominated by alt-country and more traditional country acts. It took ‘Keith’ – a viral hit about Keith Urban – and an EP going gold in Australia to convince local pop radio to give her music a chance. Since then, she has become one of the biggest streaming independent acts in New Zealand and has risen to the top tier of the Australian country scene.

Bell was always destined to be a singer. At four years old, she joined her brother and sister to sing country songs to audiences in her hometown of Waimate. Throughout her childhood, the family of five competed in country music competitions throughout the South Island. She began learning guitar at eight years old, her mother driving her to Timaru for lessons.
