About the artist
Kina started playing shows at the age of 4 in front of her stuffed animals. Now she plays in front of people. In 2007, Kina joined YouTube, made a music video and entered herself into a contest. A few months later, her video for "Message From Your Heart" aired during the Super Bowl and its 97 million viewers (or 194 million eyeballs, depending on how you're keeping track) and she walked away with a record deal. Since then, Kina has regularly posted her songs on YouTube, amassing many millions of views, and toured throughout North America, UK, Europe, Asia and Australia. She self-released her debut full-length Stairwells in February of 2010, debuting on Billboard’s Top 200 and #5 on iTunes’ Pop Chart. In 2011, she released a remixed and remastered version of Stairwells featuring new songs and exclusive videos, again appearing on Billboard’s Top 200 and #2 on its New Artist Chart. To date, Kina’s videos have been viewed more than 100 million times on YouTube and massively featured online, on television and in print. The original video for “Valentine” has surpassed 14 million views and “In Your Arms” (a stop-motion video constructed with 288,000 jelly beans) has been added across MTV and VH1 networks and earned Kina performances on Ellen, Jimmy Kimmel Live, an iTunes feature and countless television and press mentions, including Good Morning America, The Today Show, The Huffington Post, USA Today, New York Post and E! News. Kina’s music is both sweet and melancholy, but always filled with hope. She’d want you to know that she saves drowning honeybees from pools whenever she gets the chance.
