Kina started playing shows at the age of four 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 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.
Her songs have been heard on television shows such as ABC’s General Hospital and MTV’s College Life. She has self-released three EPs, and in February of 2010, Kina independently released her debut full-length album, Stairwells, which debuted on Billboard’s Top 200 and #5 on iTunes’ Pop Chart. Her 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.
Today, Kina is among the top subscribed-to musicians on YouTube with over 302K subscribers and 60.3 million total video plays. Her official music video for ‘Valentine’ has amassed over 6.9 million views alone. She was also named SiriusXM Coffee House’s Singer-Songwriter Discovery of 2010.
