Artiste Biogrphy
It is said the eyes are windows to the soul. But the windows to Kaysha Lee’s soul are her powerful voice, introspective lyrics and harmonious melodies.
From learning to play piano at age six, to hearing her dad sing tunes from their native Jamaica, music has always been in Kaysha’s life. It might have been destined then that, at 15, Kaysha began to nurture her singing talent through participation in gospel choirs. Eventually, she toured Canada, the U.S. and France with the Nathaniel Dett Chorale, received a Gemini award as part of the Sharon Riley and Faith Chorale and performed at Barack Obama’s inauguration. At that time, Kaysha was also a vocal, piano & theory teacher. She credits these experiences with helping her to embark, in summer 2009, on a solo career.
The journey hasn’t always been easy. Aside from vocal precautions, Kaysha faces a different battle. In 2003, following two car accidents that resulted in neck and lower back disc injuries, she was diagnosed with fibromyalgia, which causes widespread chronic pain. The outcome saw Kaysha on medications until she decided on a natural route, which now includes the healing methods of Jamaica and a vegan lifestyle. Passion for music also allows Kaysha to persevere.
Since going solo, Kaysha released the singles Pirates in the Ship, (featuring rapper QuandoN) and My Hearts Crying For You, which is available through iTunes and most digital outlets. She followed up with her demo mixtape, Undefined, which was released in London, England and Toronto last year.
Two copies are available, one with DJ Kenny and Lindo P mix & sound effects also one without. With a fusion of mid to up-tempo reggae and soul-influenced R&B, Kaysha’s song topics range from the ups and downs of life to love. She will also incorporate her classical piano training and eventually guitar, into new material.
Kaysha also recognizes the importance of stage presence. As a mesmerizing live entertainer, she’s performed at Toronto outlets such as Afrofest, Trane Studio jazz lounge and Follow Your Instinct’s talent showcase as well as New York City’s most well known open mic nights at the Village Underground. In September 2010, Kaysha staged a successful showcase in England. During the trip, she also conducted media interviews and collaborated with British artists.
However, it was a late-2010 move to Jamaica that saw Kaysha throw herself vigorously into the music scene and recording process. Having settled in Kingston, she has since released two tracks (Take Me From Disgrace and 3 Weeks) that are in rotation on Carribean radio stations such as Irie Fm. In addition, Kaysha has re-released Just to Be With You and Heart of a NinJah, both from Undefined and has released a video for Just To Be With You. Just To Be With You video can now be viewed on various tv stations in Jamaica the Carribean and online music mixes worldwide.
It seems this young musicians heart for music cannot be contained because she has recently pre-released two more singles "Breathe" produced by Spragga Roots and a reggae remix to outkast's "Prototype" Produced by Dia of Builders Music for Life Felt Music Group.
Kaysha had special guest artist join her for an intimate 2 sets at Suzie’s Bakery in Kingston. She has also since opened for controversial poet Mutabaruka in Portland and celebrated Emperor Haile Selassie I’s visit to Ja by singing at Tuff Gong Studios Friday April 29th 2011.
Kaysha continues to get involved in local events and spread her eclectic, undefined sounds across the nation to all who will take the time to discover this blossoming ariste.
With an infectious sound, stunning looks and a charming personality, Kaysha Lee is letting the world see her soul, one lyric at a time.
