Loving fans and new listeners alike seem to agree that the individuality of Kaia Vieira’s sound is the most compelling element of her emerging artist allure. Summed up by LA-based journalist Jackson Liguori as ‘ominous jazz/soul vocals and crackling hip-hop/DnB beats’, Kaia’s music is clearly born from and contributing to the evolutionary electro-jazz age, forging its mark in new ground somewhere between the soul, hip-hop and electronic movements of the modern UK music scene.
After a few years of developing her live performance at local venues and festivals in home county Dorset, Kaia’s audience began to grow to wider national and international audiences in 2017 when she was invited to perform on globally renowned Sofar Sounds. Since then, 2018 proved to be a pivotal year for Kaia as she released her debut EP Raw in July, followed by spending the summer travelling USA’s West Coast and performing with local musicians on Venice Beach, LA. She then went on to relocate to London in September in pursuit of her music. With plans for new releases and a European tour in the coming year, Kaia is certainly an emerging artist to watch.
