Press Play: Kayla DiVenere Releases New Single "Small Talk"

Los Angeles-based singer and songwriter Kayla DiVenere shares her new single, “Small Talk,” out today via Sound Factory Records. Following recent hit singles like “Date Myself” and “Jumping the Gun,” the LA-based artist delivers another punchy alt-pop earworm with her new single, “Small Talk.” Kayla created the song with producer/songwriter Jordan Witzigreuter (The Ready Set) and songwriters Maia Kelly and Zach DeGaetano.

At just twenty 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.

“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,” she opens up. “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.”
