Kaylah Tyson is a Meerooni woman of the Gurang nation with ties also to the Ngugi people of the Quandamooka region. More than a hip hop artist, Kaylah completed a Diploma in Performing Arts at the Aboriginal Centre for the Performing Arts (ACPA).
Kaylah is certainly no stranger to the stage. Over the years she has performed as part of Poetic Murriz and the multi award-winning crew, Impossible Odds. Her time as a solo artist as Kaylah Truth has also seen her supporting and hosting international artists including TLC, Kid Ink, Nelly, Naughty By Nature, B.O.B, Lupe Fiasco, Ciara, J.Holiday and Lady Leshurr.
Kaylah is one of our Seedling BlakBeat artists for 2019. The Seedling program focuses on the creative development process, enabling artists and creatives the space to explore, seed new ideas, and challenge forms of expression.
We pay our respects to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander ancestors of this land, their spirits and their legacy. The foundations laid by these ancestors - our First Nations Peoples - gives strength, inspiration and courage to current and future generations, both Indigenous and non-Indigenous, towards creating a better Queensland.
