Get set to be captivated by the honeyed vocals, fierce, contemporary rhymes and shimmery feel-good vibes of Kaiit.

Naarm-based ARIA award winning artist Kaiit (pronounced Ky-yeet) burst onto the scene in 2017 with her debut single ‘Natural Woman’. Creating waves online and commanding the attention of soul and hip-hop tastemakers, the subsequent release of her debut EP Live From Her Room (and, in particular, the smoother-than-smooth love ballad ‘OG Luv Kush Pt 2’) fuelled her first sold out national tour and established her as a must-see act at.

Kaiit’s passion for jazz and soul is evident in her music, and was confirmed by neo-soul queens Jill Scott and Erykah Badu who personally claimed her as their ‘musical love child from Down Under’. She draws musical inspiration from her idols Amy Winehouse and Lauryn Hill, as well as contemporary peers Noname and SZA.

Kaiit is an artist in every sense of the word, with a creative vision sustained by a deep spiritual connection with her ancestors. Her music is timeless but the contrast between her old soul voice and fierce, contemporary rhymes set her apart, painting a vibrant picture of gratitude and community, amidst honest and relatable storytelling. Kaiit’s infectiously positive demeanour shines through in everything she creates; everything about her aesthetic is bold, beautiful and awake with colour and experimentation.

Join Kaiit as she performs songs from her highly anticipated new album.
