Kaila Mullady is the 2015 & 2018 World Beatbox Champion, the 2014 American Vice Beatbox Champion, 3x Loop Station Champion and 3x reigning Beatrhyme Champion. Kaila performs all over the world infusing beatboxing, singing, rapping, and theater to push the boundaries of creativity and show just what the human instrument is capable of.
A multi-instrumentalist, KM uses a loop station with guitar, beatboxing, and vocals to become a one-woman band. An original member of champion beatbox crew, The Beatbox House, she has since moved on to form a champion beatbox team with 2016 American Beatbox Champion, Mark Martin, called Lightship.
One of the most fulfilling parts of Kaila's career has been traveling the world teaching workshops promoting expression and leadership through music. Her work using beatboxing as a tool for speech therapy led to a partnership with New York University where a class was explicitly designed to build tools in the classroom for blind students based off of her curriculum.
Giving back to communities is an integral part of Kaila’s creative process which motivated her to take over producing the American Beatbox Championships in 2016 which is the largest platform for Beatboxers in North America.
Kaila has traveled the country speaking at schools with the purpose of inspiring the youth to find the power of their voice, stand up for what they believe in and chase their dreams. From elementary school assemblies to college presentations she has been thrilled to have her message reach many people all around the world.
Whether on stage in front of beatbox fans, in an auditorium speaking to students, or helping staff training at a corporate event, Kaila has seen the benefits of beatboxing and how it allows people to open up, work together and build listening skills, no matter what their musical skill level is. Kaila believes beatboxing is the perfect vehicle to allow audiences to come out of their shell and build confidence in their voice.
