unnamedA true performer with a voice that commands attention, Vylette is undeniably a rising star in the R&B and Pop music scene. The Boston breed native has been singing since the age of 3, performing since she was 7 and began songwriting at the young age of 11, with hopes that one day her music would captivate and inspire those who listen.

Gifted with an unforgettable presence and vibrant vocals, Vylette has shared stages with the great talents of Diggy Simmons, Omarion, Jeremiah and Kat Deluna, as hundreds-to-thousands filled the crowds to listen to this songstress. She has also gone to headline an Anti-bullying event, for Middle & High School students, inside Northeastern Matthew’s arena which resulted in a packed house. “Vylette is a star, its just a matter of time before everyone sees her shine” says Boston’s Hot 96.9FM’s radio personality Mellisa and 101.3FM’s BigCity Radio’s DJ, DeeJay Dexx.
As her ora and future as a performer continues to shine bright, Vylette has received a great ongoing response from fans, both old and new. With the release of her 2011 iTunes EP, “Made For This,” supporters watch on and launched her 1st single “Rollercoaster” to 6,200+ Youtube views within weeks and then later rocketed her 2nd smash single “Let It Go” to a whopping 65,000+ views to date. Furthermore, with this year’s release of her 2nd project, The Purple Tape, launching exclusively for FREE on her website, has enabled Vylette to generate 2,000+ downloads within the first week of its release.
With the influences of Beyonce, Aaliyah & the late Michael Jackson, Vylette has the dream of leaving her musical mark, just like they did, on those who dare listen. Fully capable of stealing the show or two, she simply wishes to steal a fews hearts as she shares hers with you, through her music.
