KYLA SIMONE
Kyla Simone is a singer-songwriter and guitarist who has a passion for empowering women through music and creative movements.  For more than 15 years Kyla has been writing and sharing her songs and hosting live music events throughout the DMV area and beyond. Now she is expanding her brand to empower other artists and help them reach their dreams.
Outside of her solo career, Ms. Simone is the Founder and CEO of Girls and Guitars Official LLC, an organization for female singer-songwriters who have a desire to master the guitar as their native instrument. The driving force behind this rising platform is music education, special events, and community enrichment. 
Launched in 2016, Girls and Guitars exists to empower and equip women to turn their passion for music into a lucrative music career 6 strings at a time.  Kyla understands first hand how it feels to want something so bad you can taste it but to get overwhelmed with the process. With Girls and Guitars, she's using this understanding, and all she has learned over the years, to build resources to make an artist's journey a little less stressful.
