Kayla Stewart blends her Midwestern roots with her grandfather's teachings to create music characterized by powerful melodies and gripping lyrics. Her early years on the West Coast were marked by self-discovery and experimentation, leading her to collaborate with talented artists like female producer Bambor Leany and the former indie pop group BRÅVES. These collaborations significantly shaped her musical style and honed her songwriting skills.

"Second Guess" is a remarkable track that captures the essence of Kayla Stewart's skillfulness. Produced by Michael Kamerman and co-written with Kamerman and Brett Fair, the song examines the complexity of questioning a relationship when a partner behaves in a certain way. With its harmonic hooks and bittersweet vocals, "Second Guess" showcases Kayla Stewart's exceptional talent as a singer and songwriter. The song is hauntingly beautiful and speaks to the power of uncertainty in a relationship. Kayla Stewart's lyrics are a window into her heart, providing an insightful look into the complexities of her mind.

"The song reflects on that vulnerable feeling of laying it all out on the line and not getting what you want in return. When your heart begins to suffer, it’s telling you something. In this case, it was telling me to question the relationship entirely." – Kayla Stewart

The accompanying music video, directed by Magen Mattox, is a cinematic masterpiece that visually translates the song's essence. Reflecting on her recent studies in theater and acting, Kayla Stewart merges these worlds seamlessly, delivering a profound artistic expression. The song and video beautifully capture the complexity of human connections and the rollercoaster of emotions that come with them.

"My director, Magen Mattox, came up with this really fun concept: A French film actress playing the highs and lows that come along with a breakup. This video truly embodies how I felt about this relationship that ended. Additionally, I have been studying theater and acting for the last year and a half, so it was really fun to play on camera and merge the worlds together for the first time." – Kayla Stewart
