Kimie is a singer/songwriter from Hawaii who blends jazz, folk, and Hawaiian music together to create her signature sound. Her parents, of Hawaiian and Portugese decent, noticed her unmistakable talent at a very young age. “I fell in love with music as a child and it naturally just became apart of my life. "No matter where I am in my life, I know I can always turn to music.
“My music is very personal to me and it was something I liked to keep to myself. I guess you could say I was a kind of a closet musician at first,” admits Kimie, who taught herself
to play her dad's old guitar in high school. “I think meeting reggae singer Barrington Levy changed that for me. The experience of being on stage and on the road with him really inspired me to
pursue my own musical career.”
