Review: "Small Talk" - Kayla DiVenere

Kayla DiVenere is a singer-songwriter, actress and model. She is known for her roles in Law and Order and Love Victor. Kayla is now paving a path for herself in the music industry. She creatively writes songs most of us can relate to and make you want to sing at the top of your lungs. Kayla released her newest single “Small Talk” on March 1st. The production is simple yet energetic which emphasizes the angelic vocal and vocal harmonies. Kayla wrote this song after reflecting on five-minute conversations she had with a crush but found herself fantasizing about more. She took those raw emotions and turned them into “Small Talk.”

This song goes out to all the romance lovers who desire more than a surface level friendship. We all fall in love with romance movies whether we like to admit it or not. The genre captivates us by exploring the natural desire for a deeper human connection. One of my favorite lines in the song is, “Want you at my window, playing your favorite mixtape, like a John Hughes movie.” We all dream about moments like these, where we find a love that feels worthy of a film. Another line says, “Wish you would say I look pretty in pink,” which I believe alludes to the movie Pretty in Pink. Kayla is an incredible lyricist and the way she wove her story with words is a gift in and of itself.


Kayla Divenere is incredibly talented in so many ways.  She has great potential in her singing and song writing abilities. Singer-songwriters are on the charts right now for their gift to tell relatable stories through music. I have no doubt Kayla will be on the charts one day. Check out “Small Talk” as well as her other music. She has a growing following on all social media platforms.  Make sure to follow her on the links below to be a part of her journey. She also posts occasional vlogs on YouTube providing glimpse into her life if you want to get to know her better.
