Having heard kp.'s first upload on SoundCloud towards the end of summer last year, I was suitably impressed with her soft vocals embraced by a rich production. It sounded so good in the waning sunlight reminiscing of flip-flop days gone by. However, as is the crowded marketplace for female-fronted future R&B music, I wasn't certain the Los Angeles artist would be able to break through the saturated blogosphere later on in her career. Thankfully, she's far more than just a one-stream wonder.
Offering a far more palatable offering for the pop market than Banks, but with more alternative thrust than the likes of Ellie Goulding, "Never On" has managed to stay just on the outskirts of the mainstream scene and retain its underground prestige.
If you follow her on social media, you'll know she's got some powerful friends in the music industry, but doesn't seem to be rushing to put pen to paper to release a debut EP just yet. That's a great sign she'll continue generating her unique style of music without the dictation of major label seniors... for now.
Proudly leaving her status as session singer, and banjo/guitar performer on SoundCloud, those passing through the Internet for new acts may miss this talent. Luckily for you, it didn't pass Indie Shuffle's ears so easily.
