As we wrapped up another series of premieres, we are teaming up with the great Kaya Black for the release of his new music video for “Burn From You,” a visual directed by Jamielyn Lippman that captures the romance and laid back nature of the song itself.
About the song, Black comments “As Matchbox is one of my biggest musical inspirations, Getting to work with Kyle Cook (guitarist from Matchbox Twenty) on a song, I constantly have to pinch myself and ask did that really just happen?”
Born in Kingston Jamaica, Kaya’s musical influences range from reggae acts such as Bob Marley & The Wailers, Ziggy Marley & The Melody Makers, Maxi Priest, Barrington Levy, Beres Hammond, Gregory Isaacs, Black Uhuru & Steel Pulse to American 90’s pop rock bands & artists like Matchbox Twenty, John Mayer & Fuel. Currently calling Raleigh North Carolina home, his new single Burn From You is a blend of pop rock, soul & reggae and is where Kaya says he is starting to feel more comfortable with who he is as an artist. Growing up listening to Matchbox Twenty and having them influence his music, having met Kyle Cook and having him play on his new album was nothing short of a dream come true for Kaya.
