Feeling a bit camera shy


"Sexy, androgynous, and full of 'tude, Kinnie Starr is a hip hop, trip-hop diva with tastes that run from the Dream Warriors and De La Soul to PJ Harvey and Tricky."-L.A. Buzz Weekly

Moving effortlessly from spoken word to trip hop, funk and pop, from silk screening to graffiti to acting, Vancouver-based Kinnie Starr has been a member of Canada's creative community since she emerged on the music scene in 1995.

Her songs have been featured in HBO's The L Word and the motion picture, Thirteen.

"Hip hop aggro-groove," wrote the L.A. Weekly after the release of her debut album Tidy in 1996. Her follow-up disc Tune Up came out in 2000 and had Toronto's NOW magazine describing it as rich with "visceral rhymes, napalm delivery, spoken word montages and eagle-eyed surveillance of the three S's-sexuality, spirituality and society." Starr's 2003 recording Sun Again, (Violet Inch), places more emphasis on the music and less on pointed political statements. Intelligent and sensual, it's head-nodding pop reminiscent of the lazy pace of Sade, India.Arie and the playful musings of De La Soul. Adding to the session are the voices of collaborators Kia Kadiri, Moka Only, Spek (Dream Warriors) and Coco Love Alcorn. Next up her latest album Anything (release date May 30th, 2006) that combines all of Kinnie’s strongest talents translating them into a dynamic album of killer songs Kinnie’s song la le la la from the Anything album was recently featured nationwide in a Zeller’s commercial.
