A monthly series curated by RDL+, Bay Area Bridges celebrates the Bay Area music scene, with Oakland as its hub. This month, we welcome Kaylah Marin to Bay Area Bridges. Kaylah is a dynamic, neo-soul, R&B vocalist. At this show RDL+ and Kaylah will debut several new compositions, including a set of Prayer Songs for the new year, adding Kaylah’s energy and talent to the mix.
Kaylah Marin first began writing and performing as a child with her father, jazz saxophonist Philip Marin, who instilled in her a love of music and dance rich within her Central American (Garifuna) roots. Kaylah has worked with Narada Micheal Walden, Billboard Producer DJ's, The Perry Twins and producer Quinn Coleman, Josh Harris, Mike Rizzo, Rod Carrillo, and Tracy Young. Her single “Oh Baby Please” debuted at number 3 on the dance Billboard chart, maintaining the top ten spot for over a month. The singer also scored music for the award winning documentary “Texas Gold” and did the voiceover and score for “Just Children,” winner of four international film festival awards.
With their 2014 debut album, Más P’alla Va, RDL+ is building an original sound that embodies the members’ collective ideas, inspirations, and histories. RDL+ is Ruthie Dineen on keys, Doug Lee on bass, Luis Salcedo on guitar, plus(+) the Bay Area's best up-and-coming musicians. The group focuses on writing and playing original compositions, while taking both lyrical and open improvisations on the pieces. While maintaining an aesthetic stemming from traditional jazz, the group experiments with odd meters, timbre, form, and melodic ideas. Nonetheless, the exploratory nature of the group is always rooted in the essence of the composed or arranged pieces.
