Bio

Kymie is an artist from Western Sydney whose vocal stylings have caught the attention
of such acts as B-Wise​, Kwame and Ja Rule​. Like many great artists, Kymie was deeply
influenced by the records her parents used to play around the house - her all-time
favourites include Ella Fitzgerald and Stevie Wonder​, but her biggest inspiration is Alicia
Keys - "I have this real connection with Alicia. It's her lyrics and stripped back style; it
mirrors who I am." - She cites her parents as a source of passion for music, whose love
of the art made an impact on Kymie at a young age.

She grew up watching her mother worship and began singing in church alongside her,
providing an outlet to sing from the heart, but slowly she began to branch out from
church music and built a presence in her local scene; in small cafes at first, then
restaurants and festivals by age 15. In 2014, Kymie had the opportunity to open for
legendary hip-hop artist Ja Rule on his Australian Tour, going on to release a charity
Christmas single titled 'Christmas Alone' and donating all proceeds to UNICEF.
In 2015 she released a single with local act Korky Buchek 'Wrapped Around', shortly
followed by a self-imposed hiatus - feeling the need to conduct some soul-searching
and find her voice. Fast forward to 2017, Kymie returns to work with exceptional artists
Kwame​, Domba and Korky Buchek​, fine-tuning her sound in the studio and finally joining
Bodega Collective - host to such acts as ​Lauren​ and ​Raj Mahal​.

This comeback proves to be a signal of intent for the RnB and soul vocalist; first
releasing single 'Suffering From You' in December, then blowing audiences away at a
sold-out World Bar show and appearing as a backup vocalist for B-Wise on his recent
triple j Like A Version​. Kymie shows no signs of slowing down this year, so keep your
eyes and ears peeled for some new music from this promising young artist!

When you said 'pussy power to the ceiling' I felt that. Can confirm it has as much, if not more, bite live. V excited for more from you!
