Singer-songwriter Kalene is a pop/rock artist whose unique Broadway-influenced vocal style has helped her develop a loyal fan base in the Long Island/New York City area.
Her first foray into performing music, aside from participating in her high-school choir, was at an annual festival hosted by her hometown — a performance that earned critical praise and appreciation among her peers and which brought Kalene and musician Matt Miller (also a former Hicksville High School alum) together. Shortly following, Kalene and Matt decided to collaborate on a new project, rebranding themselves as a band called Medium. Unfortunately, due to conflicting views and aspirations, Kalene and Matt ended Medium after only a handful of performances.
Following her high-school graduation, Kalene attended Brooklyn College as an acting student in the BFA Theatre program. However, Kalene discontinued her enrollment to pursue a career as a successful recording artist. Kalene is currently working on her debut EP titled Four that will be released in 2017. She has already recorded three tracks that she performs on a regular basis in the New York City area. Performing with her are Joe Oliveto (guitar), Tony Perez (drums), and Mike Themistocleous (bass guitar).
