Singer-songwriter Kimié Miner creates an inimitable musical style that dresses the listener in a flowing mu‘umu‘u at sunset on a cool, Hawaiian beach. Growing up on an island, surrounded by the ocean is a formative experience which can be heard throughout her work; giving her songs a loose, down-to-earth feel, and imbuing her lyrics with natural imagery. Her parents, of Hawaiian and Portuguese decent, noticed her affinity for music at a very young age – in Kimié’s words, “It is my mother, my brother, my best friend, and my first love. No matter where I am in my life, I know I can always turn to music.” Inspired by jazz and R&B-influenced individualists like India Arie, Lauryn Hill, and Erykah Badu, Kimié taught herself guitar at age 14, and began writing songs as a form of self-expression that also taps into themes which transcend ethnicity, gender, and age.
