Biography

With her beguiling, airy voice and robust blend of cosmic jazz, R&B, folk, and classical, singer/songwriter Kadhja Bonet quietly made waves in the Los Angeles underground prior to releasing the mini-album The Visitor (2016) and full-length Childqueen (2018). A multi-instrumentalist with a background in classical violin dating back to childhood, Bonet seriously pursued music as an adult following an unfulfilling period in film school. She began collaborating with L.A. producer Itai Shapira, resulting in her soulful debut single "Tears for Lamont" in 2014. Later that year Bonet participated in the Red Bull Music Academy program in Tokyo, working with German producer RJ and Australian producer Max Maxwell on the electronic-laced single "Late Night Munchies." Throughout early 2015, she continued to release singles via her Bandcamp page, each one expanding her range and developing her elegant, occasionally cinematic sound. In September of that year, Bonet delivered her first collection of music, The Visitor, a mini-album released through Fresh Selects and Fat Possum. Less than two years later, she followed it up with the full-length Childqueen, an even more transportive and mystical set of songs for which she provided most of the instrumentation. ~ Timothy Monger
