Kayla Hotte & her Rodeo Pals play traditional country and western music. Kayla's love of vintage music is evident in her song choices and writing style. She teams up with Alberta's finest musicians to produce a sound that is rarely heard in Alberta outside of your grandparent's record collection.
In 2014, Kayla released her self-titled debut album Kayla Hotte & her Rodeo Pals.
Kayla started playing guitar at 13 years old. She delved into other forms of traditional music, including obtaining a diploma in Jazz from Grant MacEwan University, but always came back to bluegrass and old-time music. Her last project, Kayla Hotte & her Rodeo Pals, was a traditional country band, and they released a self-titled album in 2014.
Kayla's accolades include winning the title Western Canadian Mandolin Champion at the age of 10, her residencies in Nashville, TN, and being a graduate of the Leadership Bluegrass Program (2013).
