Kiah Victoria (NYC) On The Main Ingredient January 28th!

Kiah Victoria, who’s excellent Gravitate EP, has been featured heavily on the show in recent weeks, will come to the studio next week to talk about her music and also share some tracks from her personal collection.

About Kiah Victoria :

Blending intimate vocal performance with the obscure synthetic textures of alt-R&B producer Toulouse, Kiah emerges from the great city of New York. Having garnered the attention of NYC’s Broadway stages- starring in The Lion King as young Nala at age ten, MTV, and now the world renowned Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music at New York University, the powerhouse songstress is steadily building on her young career. After singing her way into a feature in Jay Z’s “Picasso Baby”, Kiah released her sophomore EP Gravitate, which is now available for your enjoyment on Spotify and iTunes.

Webisode

On my last (Best Songs of 2013) radio show I mentioned doing a “webisode” of the songs that I didn’t get to play, but after going back the list (before I whittled it down 3-4 times), I decided there was so much I wanted to still play that I decided to do “The Best Songs of 2013 – Part 2” next week instead. There will be some themed, downloadable 2013 mixes coming soon as well!
