Meet Kaiit

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.

Meet Samm Henshaw

Iniabasi Samuel Henshaw would be described by some people as Johnlengend-GavinDegraw-SamSmith mishmash. However a preview of  Sam’s art would help you know why he’s very much his own person & hard to box Samm Henshaw in. Just how we like it !
Broke – Samm Henshaw was our first introduction to this versatile creative. We immediately understood why he was on to something.
 
24 year-old Samm Henshaw has been on the musical grind for a while now. Samm Henshaw released his debut Ep; The Sound Experiment in 2015, during his last year of college. Only Wanna Be With You – Samm Henshaw;from this Ep, was a beautifully written melodic love letter. Samm Henshaww also produces & writes his own music.

Samm Henshaw is already on most of your faves radars & may have even already worked with them. From Pharrell Williams to ChanceTheRapper
This brought about How Does It Feel – Samm Henshaw a collaborative effort with Pharrell. https://youtu.be/uRillMJ07ag

 

He says working with the legendary producer brought him out of his shell & made him open to more experiments with his music. 
Samm say’s he still gets nervous every time he’s about to perform live on stage, although as a fan you probably could never hear this. Just the smooth bass in his cool baritone voice.
 
 
Samm Henshaw is British-Nigerian. Born in South London to Nigerian parents & yes, yes he loves Jollof rice. He says he grew up listening to Michael Jackson, Usher, Stevie Wonder & the Spice girls.
