A native of “Kentuckiana”, the place where Indiana and Kentucky’s borders meet the Ohio River, 19 year old KÊTA is a young woman with roots and wings. In Spring of 2014, her musical pursuits put her on a fast track out of the Midwest and landed her right into the heart of the music industry: Los Angeles, California.
Within the first 3 months of landing in LA, 16 year old KÊTA's freshman Album, 'Generation Call' got the attention of music industry executives affording her the opportunity to open for Sam Smith’s West Coast tour, signing with CAA (Creative Artist’s Agency) and landing her a publishing deal with Sony/ATV.
KÊTA achieved a singular sound and sensibility right from the start. A refined vision guided even the earliest stages of her songwriting as she drew from inspiration from the music she grew up on (“everything from the Supremes to Elvis to Rachmaninoff to Fugazi”) as well as from newer influences like the atmospheric alt-pop of Imogen Heap and Kimbra’s dance-infused indie-rock. Another key factor that set KÊTA apart as a singer and songwriter: the intensely inspiring mix of honesty and optimism that is the golden thread running through all her songs.
“My music is driven by the things I’ve personally gone through. My goal is always to recognize the negative to bring out the positive, because I believe that life is what you make it.”
Fast Forward two years later, KÊTA, in her 19th year of life, has already accomplished things in the music industry that some people work a lifetime to achieve.
KÊTA did a collaborative work with Universal Music Group EDM artist Schiller for his most recent album, "The Future". Within a week of this album’s release, which included three tracks that KÊTA co-wrote and recorded vocals on, the album went #1 on the German iTunes charts. The title track to the album, "The Future" ( co-written and sung by KÊTA ) made it's global debut with a stunning cinematic music video, featuring KÊTA in an astronaut suit, with an honest and optimistic appeal to the world for 'More love and less hate'.
January 1st of 2017, KÊTA signed as a content creator with AwesomenessTV and launched a YouTube channel that will feature weekly uploads on Wednesdays, with a wide variety of Lifestyle, Music Industry and Inspirational Content.
