Kylee Saunders (born May 25, 1994 in Arizona, United States), better known mononymously as Kylee, is an American singer of Japanese descent. She is signed onto Sony Music Japan's DefStar Records label.

Born to an American father and Japanese mother, Kylee became interested in singing thanks to the influence of her father and was exposed to singing from an early age, dreaming of becoming a singer and often performing in front of crowds. When she was eleven years old, she passed an audition to perform the national anthem at the opening segment of an NBA game, earning a standing ovation. Soon after, this performance earned her the interest of music producers and she was signed onto the independent label RX-Records. Kylee attended Stoller Middle School in Portland, Oregon until 2007 when she returned to Arizona.

On October 17, 2008, "Vacancy" was released in the United States as a digital single.Under RX-Records, she released her first single "Vacancy" on December 3, 2008, which was featured as the ending theme to the Sony Computer Entertainment anime series, Xam'd: Lost Memories. On March 24, 2010 Kylee released her major debut single under Sony Music Japan's label DefStar Records, titled "Kimi ga Iru Kara" (キミがいるから?, "Because You Are Here"), which was featured as the theme song to the 2010 film Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac, a Japan-America co-production in which she also gave a cameo performance. Her second major label single, Missing/It's You, is slated for release on July 7, 2010, with "Missing" being the second opening theme song to the Bones and Stan Lee anime Heroman. She will also perform as one of the opening acts for the 2010 Summer Sonic Festival, playing on the Urban/Dance Stage.
