Inspired by epic nights out at NYC hotspots like Body & Soul, her debut EP 'Hideaway' is packed with deep house grooves and shimmering pop melodies.

Top it all off with an unexpectedly moving version of Haddaway's 'What Is Love?' and you've got a fascinating polymath whose music is as colourful, diverse and surprising as the twists and turns that led her where she is today.

Having only recently turned her hand to writing songs, 25 year old Kiesza is a trained ballerina who spent her teens in the Navy, where her shooting skills had such precision the Army tried to recruit her as a sniper; instead, Kiesza sailed to Hawaii then stumbled in to competing in Miss Universe Canada.
