This episode we interview sisters country-pop duo Wildfire
About Wildfire:
The best singers draw from experience. And that’s true for young as well as
well-seasoned artists.
Though still in their mid teens, sisters Kelli and Kayla Iutzwig, a.k.a. Wild

Fire, prove this point at show after show, in song after song. Their self-
titled, debut EP Wild Fire confirms that their future is bright. Their

sophomore EP Been There., confirms that this future is now, with a
soundtrack that’sinfectious, fun and impossible to resist.
More than that, they are already conveying their stories through music in
ways that inspire with audiences their age and beyond. Singly and in
harmony, they channel the optimism of youth, sprinkle in the spice of early
insight into life’s lessons, super-charge it with jolt of pop and the sass of
country.

No wonder Linda Wilson, President of the Texas Country Music Association, describes them as “one of the best up-and-coming young artist duos
out there.” And following their live appearance on “Great Day Houston” in March 2019, KHOU-TV proclaimed, “Wild Fire are setting the music
world ablaze.” In fact, KHOU-TV “Great Day Houston” invited Wild Fire back on the show in 2020.
This fire was kindled in Houston, where their parents spotted Kelli’s and Kayla’s talent when they were barely old enough to sing along to Taylor
Swift, Carrie Underwood, Sam Hunt, FGL and other radio favorites. When each girl was 6 years old she began studying with celebrated vocal
coach Pamela Moore. Both also learned to play guitar, with Kelli doubling on drums. They took to songwriting quickly and naturally and learned
how to transfertheir energy and creativity to numerous live theater and dance productions.
After launching Wild Fire in 2016, they’ve wowed audiences at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, NRG Stadium, NRG Arena, Kemah
Boardwalk, Firehouse Saloon, Dosey Doe, Liberty Opry, Sugarland Opry and the University of Houston Stadium, among many other venues. They
reached the semifinals of Houston Rodeo’s Rodeo Rockstar competition in 2016 — and soared to the finals in ’17. That same year they made the
final round of the Huntsville Superstar competition in Huntsville, Texas. Then, in 2018, they took first prize as Female Vocalist of the Year in the
Young Adult category at the Josie Music Awards, held at the Celebrity Theater inside Dolly Parton’s Dollywood theme park. In 2019, Wild Fire had
several of their originalsongs placed in NBC's "Very Cavallari" reality TV show.
With over 119,000 followers on Facebook and Instagram, plus many more on other social media, Wild Fire will widen their impact beyond music
in 2020 as official ambassadors for the Global Country Music Association (GCMA) and advocates for equality and fairness for the genre’s female
artists.
