Kayla DiVenere’s “Small Talk” Single Details the Story of a Secret Crush

Kayla DiVenere (@kayladivenere) is a young, LA-based multi-talented singer-songwriter, musician, and actress from Montreal, Québec, Canada. Not too long ago, she released a punchy pop single, “Small Talk,” created with producer/songwriter Jordan Witzigreuter (The Ready Set) and songwriters Maia Kelly and Zach DeGaetano via Sound Factory Records.

“I created ‘Small Talk’ in my longing to have more than a fleeting 5-minute conversation with my crush every time he would come over. My imagination ran wild and I found myself aching for something like a John Hughes romance movie about a secret love, complete with a boombox outside my window and a mixtape of his favorite songs. After rewatching every romance movie I could find, I decided that instead of torturing myself, I should write this song in an attempt to pour my heart out and make sense of my desire for something more than small talk.” – Kayla DiVenere explained

At just 20 years old, Kayla’s catchy yet introspective lyrics perfectly capture the highs and lows of young adulthood. On “Small Talk,” her honeyed vocals tell the story of a secret crush she has on her brother’s best friend. The song follows Kayla’s recent hit singles “Date Myself” and “Jumping the Gun.”

“‘Writing ‘Date Myself’ reminded me of how beautiful it is to spend time by yourself, and how important it is to be comfortable owning your high standards and loving yourself. Being able to hear the song back after writing it and screaming it at the top of my lungs has comforted me more than any guy has, and I hope it can comfort people who relate to it too.” – Kayla DiVenere explained

Kayla DiVenere’s penchant for the arts has been apparent from a very young age. She started acting at the age of six (Love Victor, Law & Order, Light as a Feather) and is now proving herself as a true double threat with a slew of captivating singles. Already landing editorial support from Spotify (Fresh Finds, Fresh Finds Pop, New Pop Picks), as well as glowing reviews from notable media outlets, there is no doubt that Kayla DiVenere is a true pop star in the making.
