Although she was steadily building a fan base before 2009, Kaye said the single “Dress and Tie,” which she recorded with pal / current “Glee” star Darren Criss, another U-M grad, brought her not only wider exposure, it also earned her a measure of legitimacy at home. She also made a splash with her sold-out Team StarKid tours with Criss.
“He’s been really generous with letting his fans know about my music, and once the ‘Glee’ version of ‘Teenage Dream’ blew up he started getting a lot of attention,” she said of Criss.
