"If anybody has mastered the delicate balance between heart-hugs and fuck-yous, it’s Kailey Prior... She’s on fire with talent, nurturing a signature sound humming with warmth in every single element from her voice to her arrangements to her lyrics."

"Kailey Prior’s lilting melodies and buttery yodels illuminate her intimate lyrics, leaving hearts warm and heartstrings thoroughly tugged...Her diverse musical experience is mirrored in the intricacies and unique character of her music."

"I write music as a way to connect to and share my own experiences as a queer woman and as a human. My hope is that by writing honestly about my dark corners and sore spots, listeners will feel less alone as they work through their own."

“Assume” gives the finger to anyone who’s ever taken advantage of you, made narrow judgments about you, or has otherwise treated you unfairly.
~Neil Frazer, OutLoud Culture - June 2019
"Sara Bareilles meets Brandi Carlile, with a Joni Mitchell twist. Expect folky yodels, wordplay, and some rhythmic anomalies."
