Pop newcomer Kali Wilde is making noise in the music industry in a big way. Her contagious, fun and relatable music is creating connections with her fans in the most authentic ways. Kali Wilde is here to make people feel empowered to be unapologetically themselves. Los Angeles native Kali Wilde started playing piano at age three and songwriting at age ten. Despite being the only musician in her family, Kali always loved pop music but it wasn't until 2016 that she truly began to study and understand it while collaborating with others throughout LA. After two years of developing her sound she was able to bring her vision to life. Her music is refreshing mainstream pop with hints of contemporary R&B, electro, and indie-pop sounds.
“Big Energy” was released late June 2019 and it’s an empowering pop anthem by Kali Wilde that we can’t get enough of. Kali shows off her insane vocal register through her highs and lows and spectacular tones. Whether she’s weaving through catchy verses or the addicting hook, Kali’s powerhouse vocals remain strong over top of the heavy backbeat. “Big Energy” is a track all about how mesmerizing Kali Wilde is. “I’ve got big energy, possibilities, all your bad vibes don’t bring around me” is a great lyric because Kali is confident in herself and spreads that contagious energy outwards. She doesn’t want anyone with negative energy around her because she won’t let that slow her down. It’s so important for young woman in the music industry to spread positivity like Kali Wilde does in “Big Energy”. We welcome this budding songstress into the BuzzMusic Family with open arms and we can’t wait to see what she delivers next!

Welcome to BuzzMusic! Your voice is beautiful, how long have you been singing for?
Thank you so much! I started playing piano as a young child and always loved composing my own songs on it. At age nine I wrote some lyrics to one of these songs and learned to sing so I could perform it for people.
What got you started in music?
My parents were avid music listeners and always had a wide range of music blasting throughout the house. According to them, I started banging away at the household piano as soon as I could walk. Over time I learned that I could play by ear and spent most of my time writing my own renditions of these songs because I didn’t have the attention span to learn how to read music. These renditions led me to songwriting, which I’ve been doing ever since.
What’s the meaning behind the lyrics of “Big Energy”? What do you want your listeners to take away from it?
I was in a toxic relationship that brought out the worst in me. He was my first love and I didn’t realize how much his jealous nature drained my energy until I finally got the strength to walk away. The lyrics of Big Energy are about that feeling you get when you become happy and confident again after freeing yourself from toxicity. I know so many people who are so scared to make changes in their lives because they don’t see that things can be better and are willing to settle. I want listeners to take away a sense of empowerment after listening to this song. Everybody deserves to feel good about their lives and who they are. If something is blocking that, tell it “move outta my way”. Never settle for less than the best version of yourself.
Can you give your fans any hints at what you might be doing next?
Well I’m a huge summer girl, so let’s just say that I’m not letting summer come to an end without releasing something else to sing along to while driving down the street with the windows rolled down, soaking up the sun. I am also excited to show a more raw and vulnerable side of Big Energy, so fans can expect something a bit more stripped down in the near future.
