Singer, Songwriter, Entertainer, Creator of hit Songs, Business Professional
Born and raised in Queens NY, Kitami fell in love with music at a very young age. Influenced by her Jamaican and British roots, she wrote her first song entitled “Time” At age 5. At age 9, she founded “Paradyce”, an all girl R&B group that toured the US, UK, and appeared at the Apollo. Artists such as Ne-Yo, Sade, Bob Marley, Nas, and Alicia Keys, fueled Kitami's focus to become a songwriter. Becoming a solo artist was never really a dream of her’s, but she quickly got used to the idea when she realized the freedom she had creatively and she began exploring wider horizons with her writing and in her performances.
Inspired by artists such as Lauren Hill and Jill Scott, Kitami promised herself that she would always stay true to her roots, sing from the heart, and never apologize in the process. Life without music was definitely not an option. Kitami formed her own four-piece band and began making appearances all over the New York City area. She then teamed up with a young up and coming local producer by the name of “Touch Tone” who introduced her to his friend, the super-talented producer “Mike Mayhem”. With the engineering skills of her peer and friend Kay'vion, the four worked to create her EP, THE FUNERAL “Laying Love to rest”. Videos for the singles “Shady”, “Love My Love” and “Come Around” are available on YouTube.
Her style is described as modern R&B with a hip hop backdrop and a dash of pop, rock and jazz as well.
It's a new day and Kitami is ready to take on the world with a fresh new sound. Kitami is extremely passionate about her music; she goes hard and always gives more than 100%! Her work speaks for itself and her thrilling live performances are not to be missed.
Her brand new LIVE mixtape called “Early Birds” which contains three original tracks, was recently released and is already creating major buzz.
