YOUTHFUL ALT-POP SINGER-SONGWRITER
REVEALS EMOTIONALLY STIRRING SINGLE/VIDEO
FROM FORTHCOMING EP
ANNOUNCES UPCOMING TOUR DATES INCLUDING
SOLD-OUT SHOW WITH REO SPEEDWAGON
20-year-old indie/alt-pop singer-songwriter KYLIE SPENCE has shared the video for her poignant new single “River”–taken from a forthcoming EP due later this year–with a stirring video filmed across Montana, where she resides. The video was premiered yesterday (August 18) via V13 who described the song as “highly relatable in nature” as it covers dealing with heartbreak. Watch the “River” music video streaming below and pre-save the track across digital platforms in advance of its release tomorrow, August 20 HERE.
“For ‘River,’ I really wanted to capture what being so desperately in love with somebody feels like, especially when the feelings are no longer mutual,” shares KYLIE. “Sometimes, it can feel so hopeless when you love someone so much and they don’t love you the way that you love them. I think we’ve all been there, and it sucks.”
Speaking on the music video, KYLIE says, “I obviously wanted to include as much of Montana as I could since this song was so heavily inspired by nature. The story follows me on a journey after getting into a fight with my partner and them leaving without me. I hitchhike my way around, and have flashbacks of the relationship throughout my journey, but start to feel like I don’t need them to be happy. Towards the end of the video, I see his truck, and all of the memories come back again, and I’m back to square one in a sense. I wanted the viewer to interpret the ending in whatever way made the most sense to them. Was I chasing him the whole time, or really trying to find myself? That’s up to you.”
KYLIE will celebrate the release by opening a sold-out show with REO SPEEDWAGON on August 21 at the Helena Civic Center in Helena, MT. She will then perform in Bozeman, MT on October 11 before heading for a mini-tour across California from October 20-24 including a stop in Los Angeles at The Hotel Café.

Hailing from a small town in Montana, KYLIE writes songs with a universal appeal that listeners of any age will relate to. For KYLIE, performing, writing, and composing are means of processing and releasing her thoughts and feelings. At a young age, her creativity began finding an audience at school talent shows, musicals, and eventually open mic nights. After saving up to buy a guitar and then teaching herself to play, she was writing one song a day by the eighth grade. KYLIE’s music can be described as deeply empathetic pop with universal appeal, speaking to difficult topics beyond her age. The self-aware girl next door who’s in tune with her emotions, KYLIE wants nothing more than for people to connect with her art. Many of her songs dive into topics that can be difficult to speak about openly. KYLIE is a true storyteller at heart with an innate gift to pen powerful lyrics and incorporate them into well-crafted, original songs, using her unique voice to do so.
KYLIE’s debut 2017 single “Lying Eyes” was immediately added to iTunes ‘Hot Tracks’ upon release and has since received over 300k Spotify streams. She has also released two cover tracks—Billie Eilish ft. Khalid’s “Lovely” and Lana Del Ray’s “Young And Beautiful”—which received airplay on Sirius XM’s The Coffee House station. Overall, KYLIE has received over 4 million Spotify streams, 595k YouTube views and over 112k Apple Music streams. She was last seen opening for Dennis Lloyd on his sold-out European and Israel tour in 2018.
