Kayleigh Skomorowski is a singer-songwriter, wind band director and music educator based in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan. Originally from Saskatoon, she began her musical education as a young child playing piano and singing in music ministry at her family parish. She continued to develop a deep passion for music throughout her high school years as she was involved in various wind and jazz band ensembles, as well as concert choir and vocal jazz at the community, school and provincial levels.
It was during this time that she began writing and recording her own compositions. Through these experiences she discovered her future career path as a music educator. Kayleigh completed a Bachelor of Education and Bachelor of Music from the University of Saskatchewan in 2010. While working through her undergraduate degrees she continued to develop her songwriting skills as a regular open mic performer and released an album of her work in 2011 under the name Kayleigh Smith called “A Little Something for Everyone”.
Kayleigh currently shares her love of music with the students of École St Mary High School where she teaches band, choir, jazz band and general music. She continues to share her gifts with her parish through ministry with her husband and two sons. Kayleigh is the director of the Prince Albert Concert Band and recently completed her Masters of Education with a focus on Music from Acadia University, NS in 2019.
Kayleigh's newest album, “Stay Wild,” is slated for release on the day of this performance. “Stay Wild” is an earnest reflection on parenthood and releasing one’s own youth, while clinging to the experiences of our past which make us. It’s a story of the many relationships in which we learn to know ourselves. Kayleigh finds inspiration in witnessing her children grow and learn, her connection to the young people she teaches, and the spaces in which she finds herself sorting through moments past. Recorded in Prince Albert with Joel Rohs of Trisonic Sound and mixed and mastered by Josh Palmer at The Recording House Studios in Saskatoon.
Kayleigh is thrilled to be releasing her work with her band on the stage at the EA Rawlinson Center for the Arts in Prince Albert. “From the moment I first walked into that space in the fall of 2010 (when I first moved to Prince Albert) I have been dreaming of sharing my music with this community on that stage. Thank you for this opportunity.”
