Meet Our Feature Artist For November | KYMIE

31 Oct 2018

We’re heading towards the hotter end of the year, and there’s more than just the weather that’s bringing some heat. Our feature artist for November is Kymie, and she’s just released one of the grooviest R&B tracks of the year. ‘NEEDS’ was produced by none other than rising hip-hop star Kwame, and has solidified Kymie as one of the best up and comers in the Australian scene. The track was premiered on Acclaim and Good Nights on triple j, and has been added to rotation on triple j Unearthed.

Kymie cites Stevie Wonder and Ella Fitzgerald as her influences, having been exposed to them by her parents, but names Alicia Keys as her numero uno. She began singing at a young age with her local church, branching out into her local scene at 15. In 2014, she opened for legendary MC Ja Rule and went on to release tunes into 2015, such as ‘Wrapped Around, before going on a hiatus. 

Returning stronger than ever, Kymie is ready to take Australia by storm, having featured heavily in B Wise’s Like a Version and dropped three incredible singles just this year alone. There’s some real promise in Kymie’s future, and we can’t wait to see what she achieves in 2019.
