Kala Farnham has been performing music all her life; she is a longtime student of the classical masters with a knack for out-of-the-box creativity.

At age three she learned her first notes on a toy piano. At age seven she graced the stage playing Mozart concertos and Chopin nocturnes. In high school she was already establishing herself as a working musician, regularly hired to accompany schools' theatrical productions; in college, she furthered her studies in music technology, composition, and jazz. Since then, daily musical creativity has been the defining factor of Kala's life.


With a broad array of musical influences, Kala's songwriting caters to a wide audience, characterized by elements of celtic and traditional folk, art pop, and jazz. She has been praised for her intricate piano work, enlightening yet relatable lyricism, and versatile vocal styling.

She cites her classical background as a prominent influence, inspired by the passion of the romantics, the musical landscapes of the impressionists, and the bold experimentation of 20th century composers.

Of modern day performers, she is most impacted by the piano techniques of Regina Spektor, Billy Joel, and Tori Amos, as well as the insightful lyricism and traditional songwriting style of 70s folk artists Joan Baez and Joni Mitchell.


Kala has shared the stage with the likes of Don McLean, Christine Ohlman, Brian Jarvis (supporting act of Sister Hazel's 2010 tour), Mikey Wax (CBS's Ghost Whisperer soundtrack, iTunes top 100 pop chart) and Dave Munro of Air Traffic Controller ("Best Indie Rock Act" of the 2010 Boston Music Conference).

She has appeared at such venues as The Garde Arts Center, The Regent Theater, The Bushnell's Autorino Hall, Six Flags New England, The Plaza at Patriots Place, and the Dubliner at Mohegan Sun Casino.

Kala has fully immersed herself as a full-time working musician, dividing her time between diverse projects outside of her solo music career including original pop-rock band The Insurance, party/dance band The Booty Shakers, and employment as a professional cocktail-wedding-church singer & pianist.

In addition to performing, Kala works behind the scenes in live and studio music production, learning the ins and outs of the music business. In 2011 and 2012 she had the opportunity to provide technical support for The Guess Who, Foghat, Little Big Town, Easton Corbin, and Bachman-Turner at Connecticut's Woodstock Fair.

The beautiful melodies, complex arrangements with classical and Broadway chops mixed every now and then with Billy Joel, the complete confidence and utter humility..." - Stephen Holloway, Harbor Church Common Ground Coffeehouse (Block Island)

Even most important for me is the originality in songs like Beat (an amazing song), Distortions or the wonderful ballad Raincloud. I..m looking forward to hear more too." - CDbaby review

"I listen to a lot of CDs. Many of them, like this one, are from piano-oriented singer-songwriters. I find Ms. Farnham's music particularly striking - the piano work is fantastic, the lyrics are eloquent (and serious without being melodramatic). I'm sure college radio is her primary audience, but there's a lot here for those of us old enough to remember when "Little Earthquakes" was released. I'm looking forward to hearing more." - CDbaby review
