Just a few words to describe the vivacious character that is Kai.
A West London born and bred artist who has been carving her path in both music and business intertwining passion and pleasure. A fun loving music entrepreneur, the singer songwriter has a plethora of talent which oozes at the seams, screaming ‘sexy, smart and independent’.
Today, the sensual and seductive single, Dive In, serves as the first single of 2016, blending these exact characteristics together. The track is produced by Shai Sevin (Jessie J, Kano, Ed Sheeran) and is taken from the forth coming EP, ‘Take It Slow’. Receiving grand reviews prior to release, the track landed Kai a slot as the support act for Teedra Moses at the renowned London music spot, The Jazz Cafe, opening the year with a bang.
Catching the eye of many through live performances in 2013, Kai also opened for US songstress Tweet at the Jazz Café, having previously grafted and independently released her first infectious single ‘Flirt’, which was picked up and serviced on KISS TV in 2011.
The success of the single spawned the next independent release in 2012, the debut EP ‘A Taste Of Me’ which served as an introduction to the sincere, yet cheeky style of Kai’s light hearted tones and pure vocals. ‘Magic Shoes’, a bubbly and catchy track with RnB undertones, served as Kai’s third release taken from the EP.
Although a graduate with a BA Hons in Business Management, Kai has always been around music, live, recorded or otherwise. Be it behind the scenes, writing lyrics, impromptu performances, or serving influential clients such as AEG Live and The Roundhouse with her promotions and marketing company. Kai has always brought her skills and talents together with a unique creative flare winning over clients and peers alike with anything she puts her hands to.
Having previously worked with soul artist Zalon Thompson, (Amy Winehouse‘s former backing vocalist and platinum-selling songwriter) as well as MOBO Award winner, Jai Amore, Kai has always surrounded herself with her passion amongst her peers. Writing from as young as 9 years old, performing and mastering her craft throughout academic years, past experience includes being in girl groups, appearing on Nickelodeon TV, singing backing vocals for a then young, aspiring Marvin Humes, former member of the super boy group JLS.
Adding another string to her bow, Kai has honed in the positive, professional and outgoing energy usually seen and orchestrated on stage into radio presenting as 2014 saw her scouted to join prime RnB and Hip Hop station, Westside Radio. Quickly grasping the reigns of presenting and marrying the new concept of broadcasting with the genre she grew up on, Kai swiftly went from a Saturday co-host to landing her own regular talk slot and securing an interview with former Jay Z and ROC Nation artist, Bridget Kelly early on in her radio career.
Today, strong minded, career focused and open hearted, Kai has been determined to build her career with from the ground up and has since crafted and learned to match music and business acumen with philanthropy.
Over the years, Kai has worked on a magnitude of projects both in her local community and nationally to raise funds and awareness for a number of good causes. Passionate, caring, dedicated and giving, Kai’s enthusiasm and desire brings her to support such causes in any way possible from donating, performing, fund raising, event planning and beyond. Particularly empowered with giving and supporting young people, Kai has also volunteered at local schools performing and giving talks, inspiring young people to believe in themselves and make a change to the world today following the mantra, ‘Dare To Be‘. In 2013, Kai launched a calendar and event using the positive ‘Dare To Be’ mantra, to raise awareness of a common issue amongst women and one close to her family, for UK Charity, Breast Cancer Care. Such events and work so far has inspired the birth of a community mentor group entitled ‘I Dream Therefore I Am‘ due to be launched later this year.
With a fiery passion and a creative, driven spirit, Kai’s energy and sophistication over flows, encapsulating her fun loving and independent vibe in her music which empowers and speaks to her audience. Watch, listen and see as Kai creates a world in which independence liberty will be set free.
