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).
KIA has written and recorded for several productions like the soundtrack of Netflix’s animation movie “Fearless” (USA), G’Day production “Honoring Liam Hemsworth and Helen Reddy” & “Standing Together” (USA), series “The Madam$” (USA) and “The Walkers” (USA), movie “Help! I Shrunk My Friends” (Germany) and upcoming movie “Manifest” (USA). Last year she received the NAMM President’s Innovation Award as well as the Ultimate Music Awards for Best Single-Pop of the Year and Best Female Artist of the Year. She was a top finalist in the IMSTA songwriting competition and the UK Songwriting Competition, and a semi-finalist in the International Songwriting Competition (ISC) and Unsigned Only Songwriting Competition.
