Sunday Buzz: Kaia Vieira
Ominous jazz-soul vocals meet 90’s-inspired trip-hop and DnB beats in Kaia Vieira’s world of groove and grit. Influenced by the UK movements in modern soul, electro-jazz and DnB/dubstep, Kaia crafts the range of her influences into a strikingly unique sound whilst rebelling relentlessly against genre boundaries. Fans talk of connecting to Kaia’s conscious and authentic song-writing as well as her defining tone, likening her music to the realms of Portishead, Erykah Badu and James Blake.
Kaia spent her teenage years making a name for herself in hometown Bournemouth and releasing her mainly self-written and produced debut EP ‘Raw’ in July 18. She has since relocated to London, studying at BIMM and building a following gigging and busking. With a sell-out launch night at The Troubadour for new single ‘Make It Your Own Way’, collaborating with UK beatbox champion Bass Ventura and currently in the studio working on her upcoming EP, Kaia is certainly an emerging artist to keep an eye on.
