WE TOLD YOU
Sure, you’re mainstream but we want you in the know.
Pronounced “Ka-eet” the 20 year-old Melbourne based soul & jazz singer-songwriter who has caught our attention.
We came across Kaiit down an extremely random WhoToldYou YouTube rabbit hole. 30 seconds in the video & we were sold!
We can show you better than we can tell you. OG Luv Kush p.2 – Kaiit
Kaiit has the relatable lyrics; positive conscious music from a girl’s girl. She says she got her big break from singing at a local spot in Melbourne, Australia. Thanks to Dj MzRisk, who shared his Tuesday set with her as a platform for Kaiit to practise her music.
Natural Woman – Kaiit paints a beautiful lyrical picture of wholesome black love.
The rest seems like history, people began to request for her musical debut because they wanted to hear songs she had written. Finding out music made her feel good & she was good at it Kaiit decided to run with her talent. Last year she released her debut album “Live, From Her Room” she says each song is like a window into her reality or world.
Listening to Kaiit makes you feel. In her song 2000 n SOMETHIN – Kaiit ; she sings/creates melodies to her young self, giving herself advice to be patient with herself. In the music video she also pays homage to her Papua New Guinean heritage. Kaiit grew up in New Guinea for significant part of her younger life.
She says when people listen to her music, she wants them to hear they’re not alone. She travels with a live band & along with most WhoToldYou faves only delivers live fire vocals on stage.
Kaiit says her dream collaboration would be with her many faves like; SZA or Noname. Fun fact: she has a twin brother & he appears in her music video…guess which one. Support the artist.
