Kilo Kish is a vocalist, songwriter, painter, fashion and textile designer, model, and actress. Creativity flows out of this girl like no other. We met up with Kilo Kish in her dreamy Laurel Canyon home, where she's been living the past year since moving to Los Angeles from New York. She was born in Orlando, Florida and moved to New York on a scholarship to the Pratt Institute.
Her talent as a painter took her to the city -- seriously, this girl's art is impressive! -- but it was the people and experiences around New York that helped define her path. She worked multiple jobs -- at a salon, as an intern, at restaurants like La Esquina and Miss Lily's, as a model for various brands -- establishing relationships, friendships and cultivating ideas. Kish expanded upon her passion for art and fashion by enrolling at FIT, for textile design, and graduated in 2012.
She began to dabble in music when her roommates introduced her to Matt Martians, a producer from the Odd Future crew. They collaborated on Matt's spaced-out, electronica project The Jet Age of Tomorrow's "Want you Still", and his soul band The Internet's "Ode to a Dream." Today she's honed her own style, and is killing it as a new and unique female artist of our generation. She's worked alongside A$AP Mob, Childish Gambino, and has modeled some incredible campaigns including Levi's.
Kish is definitely on the up & up, and there's so much more GLOW in her future. Watch out.
