Dutch and Indonesian singer soulwriter KIA is an authentic artist based in Los Angeles whose soulful sound and memorable timbre is ready to be heard. Much like her own mixed heritage, her music is a blend of various genres; a base of neo-soul with a strong emphasis on pop and touches of jazz, funk, hip-hop, and R&B. KIA’s music has been described as “deep and hypnotic” (Buzz-Music LA), “…upper echelon of today’s soul wave.” (Xttrawave).

As a singer-songwriter KIA has written and recorded for several productions like web- series “Hard Medicine” (USA), “Go-Jump!” (Germany), G’Day production “Honoring Liam Hemsworth and Helen Reddy” (USA), and upcoming series “Madam$” (UK). She recently received her first American Award (NAMM President’s Innovation Award), became a top finalist at the IMSTA songwriting competition, and with her solo project she now released her latest single “Pioneer”.

KIA received her undergraduate degree in Vocal Performance with honors from ArtEZ Jazz & Pop Conservatory in Arnhem (The Netherlands). She followed an academic semester in Songwriting at the Cornel School of Contemporary Music (Los Angeles). Some of her previous mentors are: Izaline Calister, Michael Indart, Jessica Vautor, Carla Hasset and Abraham Laboriel. She is currently a MM student at the California State University in Los Angeles for Vocal Performance where she specializes in Commercial Music.
