Beginning as a fleeting summer camp friendship, synth pop trio,
Moon Kissed's genre-bending approach fuses elements of indie, pop,
electronic, and jazz to create an avant-garde sound all their own.
Each having grown up in New York, Khaya, Emily, and Leah pride
themselves on their honest outlook and independent mindset. The
conventions of pop music typically call for formulaic compositions
constructed by hired songwriters. Instead, the trio prefers to
keep things personal by writing, recording, and producing all of
their own music.
Lead vocalist and producer, Khaya, felt her soulful voice emerge
at a young age. At 15, she was a finalist on The X Factor, but
quickly realized the pop star archetype was not made for her. Now
a matured college student, she realizes her artistic vision
extends far beyond easy-listening pop. Coming from a background of
jazz and classical music, instrumentalist Emily and drummer Leah
are determined to revolutionize these long-established sounds and
popularize them in modern context. Together, Khaya, Emily and Leah
are marrying their divergent musical experiences and inspirations
to define Moon Kissed.
Channeling acts such as St. Vincent, Chairlift, Phantogram,
Grimes, Lorde, and Charli XCX, Moon Kissed is stepping out of the
box of defined genre, striving to make their listeners a little
uncomfortable. Ultimately, Moon Kissed wants to submerge
contemporary pop music into a slightly darker world and showcase
the moody sound that they’ve created.
