Kia is about love, beauty, human nature, and God. Her music reflects all those things. She quotes, “I want you to feel high without the feeling of a superficial one. Through my music, I want to create and redefine an atmosphere of love and beauty in all forms and on all levels, embracing you as you embark upon a new but classic feeling. It's all about the beauty of elevation. My music is universal and for all seasons. You can make love, clean the house, cook, dance, entertain, drive, sleep, relax, get motivated, be vulnerable, and even get lost in it! The gimmick here... is to not have one. Just be true, be able to relate, and know that there is someone out there who feels the way you do."
A native of Richmond,Virginia and a product of Howard University, Kia made her introduction into the entertainment world while singing with former Washington, D.C. group “Entyme” along with other respected soul artists Geno Young, Sy Smith, and Yahzarah. Kia is a member of the new school RAMP (Roy Ayers Music Production) whose musical contributions provided the world with samples for hits like A Tribe Called Quest’s “Bonita Applebum”, Mary J. Blige’s “My Life” and Erykah Badu’s “Amerykah’s Promise”. Ms. Bennett is best noted for her soothing background vocals which blessed international recording artists such as D’Angelo, Ledisi, Michael Bolton, Julie Dexter, and Deborah Bond. She has collaborated with Osunlade, Kindred The Family Soul, Raheem DeVaughn, Sy Smith, Bilal Salaam, W. Ellington Felton, Sol Edler, Kia El Amin, Ginger Bleu, Wayna, Ayanna Gregory, Afi, Carlos Mena, Tamara Wellons, Ave To, Shambahala, Ezel, SoulPersona, Twin Cities, and Nick Van Gelder out of London. Kia also writes for other artists.
This exclusive EP is a collection of songs that are collaborations on other artists and producers albums from the U.K., Greece, Spain, and the U.S.
From seeds carefully chosen and planted, I share with you the beauty and soulfulness of my bloom...
