A LANGWARRIN teenager has released her first album at just 16 years of age.
Kaiyah Mercedes’ debut album Hindsight launched this week. The young singer began writing the album in 2020, drawing from her personal experiences in life.
“When writing this album, I found a unique sense of calm after so much hurt. I was able to look back and understand all that I’d been through by writing about my experiences and healing through the words. I wrote these songs for myself, a kind of therapy, but I hope other people can listen to my songs and relate, and learn to heal too,” she said.
Mercedes’ music has been played on the radio in Australia, Italy, the USA, the UK, Canada, and South Africa.
Hindsight released on 31 October.
