Welcome - Kiiara

Slightly left-of-center pop artist Kiiara is a breathy vocalist whose output falls somewhere between that of Jhene Aiko and Lorde. The Illinois native previously recorded as Kiara Saulters and independently issued the homey acoustic pop song "Bring Me Back" in 2013. Eventually signed to major-label Atlantic, she worked with the Cataracs' Niles Hollowell-Dhar and David Singer-Vine, as well as Brenton Duvall and Felix Snow, and recorded "Low Kii Savage." The EP, which alternated between downcast electronic pop and bass-heavy, trap-style rap production, was a radical change in direction.

After being signed under Atlantic Records, Kiiara released her debut single "Gold" in June 2015. It peaked at number five in Australia, where it was certified Platinum. Her debut EP, low kii savage, was released on March 22, 2016. The official music video for "Gold," released in March, quickly garnered popularity and reached five million views by mid-May 2016.

"Gold" was chosen as background music of a 15-second Apple Watch commercial titled "Style" in 2015. There were a range of Apple Watch ads released at a similar time all relating to different features of the watch.

Kiiara also has a SoundCloud page where she posts her songs. She often releases new songs on the site before on iTunes, Apple Music or Spotify.

With her unique sound and enticing vocals, Kiiara is taking the music world by storm. She is definitely doin' it
