Life & Work with Kai Caster

Today we’d like to introduce you to Kai Caster.

Hi Kai, can you start by introducing yourself? We’d love to learn more about how you got to where you are today?
I started making music right as quarantine started last March. I’d always had a passion for music growing up but only ever had time to focus on acting and school growing up. But once everything kind of came to a stop because of the pandemic, I found myself with a lot more time on my hands. So me and my good friend josh just started making music at his dad’s house. From there, I really caught a bug with it and haven’t stopped since.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
It definitely hasn’t been smooth but it’s been a lot of fun. Going into this, I had a lot of nerves and doubts, it takes a lot for me to open up and really dive into things. But after a while, I started getting more comfortable and I think it shows in the growth of my music. Going through a lot of trauma over the past few years definitely made it hard for me to open up at first when writing music but once I got more comfortable, I found that my grief and trauma really fueled my creativity, gave it depth.

Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
I’ve been a full-time actor for my entire life. But now music is definitely becoming another creative output for me. But as of now, I’m definitely known for my acting credits, but I hope people can start to know me for my music as well. I love the idea of having a multi-dimensional career. I think it brings more passion for me to both creative outlets. It’s kind of like having an outlet for an outlet haha. I take a lot of what I’ve learned with acting and apply it to my music. Everything I write, I want to have a story, every song I try to really have a beginning middle and end. I definitely want to make my music almost seem like a cinematic experience. Still working on perfecting that but I just love the idea of it.
