KYTLY shares her single, “Not The Jealous Type” (Interview)


KYTLY shares her brand new single, “Not The Jealous Type”

Canadian singer-songwriter KYTLY (aka Laura Keightley) has unveiled her sensual new single, “Not The Jealous Type.”

“Not The Jealous Type” is a slow-burning, post-breakup song that reminds us that we can’t control everything, and that’s okay. The song is also a caution to always weigh a person’s words against their actions carefully and act accordingly.

KYTLY is currently working on putting the finishing touches on her new album, which is set to be released later this year and will explore the experiences that have shaped her artistic and personal life over time. The album is produced by Los Angeles-based Producer and Fountains of Wayne drummer Brian Young (Jesus and Mary Chain, The Posies, Gutter Twins) and will also feature a talented roster of veteran players, including guitarists Jody Porter (Fountains Of Wayne) and Jon Skibic (Afghan Whigs), bassist Mark Crozer (Jesus And Mary Chain) and multi-instrumentalist JK Harrison (Brian Wilson).

First off, care to introduce yourself to our readers?

I’m KYTLY, an indie artist making music and films in Toronto and L.A.

You have unveiled your single, “Not The Jealous Type.” What can you tell us about the background and writing process of the song?

I wrote this song after a breakup! Brian Young (producer) and I worked on the structure by sending chorus tweaks and new verses back and forth between Toronto and L.A. Brian played drums, Rich McCulley played guitar, and Kelly Buchanan played Bass. I recorded my vocals in Toronto at Telejet studios.

You attended film school and started your career as a creative on TV and film production. Does your training in film give you an advantage in your music career?

Absolutely. If you omit a soundtrack from a scene, a lot of emotion is lost…both are creative ways of storytelling that compliment each other. I do feel like my music has a slight cinematic landscape feel to it.

What’s your favourite thing about the music scene in Hamilton?

It seems inclusive! It’s a smaller scene, but so much talent.

What’s up next for you in 2023?

A new single will be released in February for a song called “Whiskey Kisses.” It’s pretty rocking. Jody Porter from “Fountains of Wayne” plays guitar on this one, and Mark Crozer from Jesus and Mary Chain plays Bass, with Brian Young (from both those bands) on Drums.
