Kanisha K releases new Single
I love being able to do what I love and to inspire people who think that their dreams can’t come true. All of this is hard for me to believe sometimes, but I think everything boils down to focusing on your passion and working hard. I’m excited about the way music travels.
That’s the vision of up-and-coming singer Kanisha K and it resonates well beyond her years. The Holland, Michigan native has embraced hit music from the past as well as the current music scene, forging a combination that allows her creative style to shine.
With a continuing cadre of success at radio, Kanisha K released a radio single Oh Damn Yeah. The song was written and produced by uber Producer Joe Vulpis (Lady Gaga, Lindsay Lohan, Richie Blackmore, Jennifer Love Hewitt etc.) and mastered by Tom Coyne (Adele, Beyonce, Sam Smith, Taylor Swift, Pink, Ariana Grande.) Kanisha recorded both “Oh Damn Yeah” and “Never Stopped Loving You” at Vulpis’ studios in Nashville. The success of the track prompted a permanent move to Nashville where she met Veteran songwriter Jane Bach. Bach is a Grammy-nominated, multiple award winning songwriter and producer. Some of the artists that have recorded Jane’s songs include Reba McEntire, Tammy Wynette, JoDee Messina, and Charles Esten to name a few.
Kanisha has earned national endorsements from Sennheiser, Forever 21 and Abercrombie & Fitch. Her seasonal tribute song, “(I Found Love,) Just In Time For Christmas” recently spread the holiday cheer in both Victoria’s Secret and Kohls stores throughout the nation.
But as every artist knows, every story has a beginning and Kanisha’s begins at home. At a very young age, the singer was introduced to a wide array of music from her supportive parents. She credits her musical influences to Etta James, Alicia Keys and Aretha Franklin and let’s be honest, if you are going to have musical influences, it’s hard to argue with those.
From singing and playing piano at age four to joining a band and playing the sax and guitar in sixth grade, Kanisha knew that vocal lessons would be the next step in her musical education. Beginning those lessons in eighth grade she went on to join her High School choir the next year and also became involved in local community theater. Her participation in an award-winning choir ultimately took her into the studio with Robyn Robins from The Silver Bullet Band and eventually headed to Los Angeles where she recorded two songs at the legendary Capitol Records studios.
Her latest release is a co-write with Bach entitled Talk is Cheap. The single releases nationally August 10, 2018.
Well-rounded and grounded, dedicated to making meaningful music and a never give up attitude translates to a future with endless possibilities for Kanisha K.
