In 2007, Kina wrote “Message From Your Heart,” filmed a video and uploaded it to YouTube. A few months later, her song and video earned her a major label recording contract and aired during the SUPER BOWL in front of its 97 million viewers. Kina soon forfeited the record deal, choosing instead to self-release her album and keep creative control. Her debut album – Stairwells – debuted on BILLBOARD’S TOP 200 chart (and #2 on its new artist chart) due in large part to her devoted online following. Kina’s sophomore album – Elements – written entirely by Kina and produced by Matt Hales (Aqualung), was released in May, 2014 and debuted in the TOP 50 on Billboard’s Top 200 Chart (and top 5 on its Folk Chart). Elements marks an undeniable maturity in songwriting and artistry and documents a period of growth and change in Kina’s personal life, complete with an honesty and a vulnerability that she’s excited to share with the universe. Kina’s music is dark and driving, sweet and soaring, melancholy, humble, heartfelt and hopeful.
