New York’s Own Kalene Drops New Single “Don’t Shut It Off”

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).

  1. Great performance by a wonderful up and coming talent. The song was amazing and she clearly loves to perform. She’s also an inspiration that you can do whatever you want with your own life because you choose the outcome at the end of the day. Happy to see she is pursuing her dreams and that successs is arising. The future is very bright for this young talented star.


  2. Her work is vibrant and real! So excited to see what else comes from her! Best kind of music is from the heart and that’s where she seems to be writing and performing from. Love her!
