Contrasting with his current defining Rock sound, Khaylan first got into music through a classical upbringing, studying violin and viola at the Music Conservatory of Trento (Italy), and joining orchestras as an instrumentalist and later as a tenor.
Parallel to his love for classical music, his teenage years see him grow as a Rock performer. Forming a couple of covers bands throughout the years, he picks up various instruments such as drums, guitar, piano and bass, and at 21 Khaylan decides to move to London to focus on contemporary music and study at Tech Music School/BIMM London.
Discovering a love for songwriting, he joins folk band Marzella as arranger and violin player for two years, during which they play various shows around London in venues such as The Good Ship and the Shepherd’s Bush Empire, and two years later forms an acoustic covers duo, Set Theory.
In 2014 Khaylan begins to focus on his own project. Bringing together elaborate tunes and catchy melodies, his strength lies in both his heartfelt acoustic songs and his band compositions which are decidedly Rock, with hints of grunge and alternative influences.
“I write songs because it keeps me going, it’s the ultimate tool for me to express myself. Sharing the music, performing… It’s the only thing that matters.”
After playing his first originals set at legendary venue The Troubadour and performing at various venues in London, Khaylan has just released his debut single “Falling” and will release his debut EP this Summer.
