Kelli and Kayla Iutzwig are two sisters from Houston, Texas and founders of the country duo Wild Fire. They grew up in a musical family and began taking professional voice lessons at the age of six from one of Houston's top vocal instructors Pamela Moore. Kelli also began drum lessons at the age of eight. Both girls play guitar and write their own original music. From a very young age, they performed in numerous theater and dance productions, which helped them build up a confidence and aspiration to perform their music live. In 2016 they decided to band together as a duo and Wild Fire was born.
Their music has a very youthful, modern feel with lots of energy and sincerity. Wild Fire released their self-titled, debut EP in May, 2017. Since then they have released a number of singles. Their music can be found on the Music page of this web site, as well as on iTunes, Google Play, Spotify and all the typical distribution channels. Currently, both sisters are hard at work on a brand new EP which was co-written with hit songwriters such as Shane Stevens and Bonnie Baker, and produced by LA producer Nash Overstreet.
This dynamic sister duo is passionately pursuing their music career and working diligently to make it to the forefront of country music. Since forming their duo in 2016, they have been featured on two TV shows, interviewed on Fox News on several occasions, written with hit songwriters, received a number of nominations, and performed at some of the most notable venues in Texas including the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, NRG Stadium, NRG Arena, The Kemah Boardwalk, Firehouse Saloon, Liberty Opry, Sugarland Opry, Dosey Doe, University of Houston Stadium and many more! Wild Fire has also participated for the past two years in the Houston Rodeo's "Rodeo Rockstar" singing competition. In 2016 they made it to the semifinals and in 2017 they made it to the finals. In 2017, they also made it to the finals in the Huntsville, Texas singing competition “Huntsville Superstar.” In 2018, Wild Fire won "Female Vocalist of the Year" in the Young Adult category at the Josie Music Awards, the biggest independent artist music awards show in the world. In 2018 Wild Fire received two nominations from the Texas Country Music Association. In 2019, Wild Fire was selected as ambassadors to the Global Country Music Association (GCMA). In this role they will be advocates for equality and fairness for women artists in the genre.
Currently Wild Fire is working with Jake McKim, founder of A&R firm Birch Street Music to develop their talents and propel them even further. Stay tuned for new music coming soon!
