Still working on that hot first release.


Feeling a bit camera shy



With a sweet, soulful voice and fresh, yet timeless songwriting style, 17 year-old singer Kêta is positioned to be a powerful new force in the world of pop. This Indiana-bred artist landed a record deal from the first batch of songs she had ever written and recorded — a dreamy brand of deeply melodic dance-pop that merges magnetic beats with organic instrumentation. Making her live debut by opening for fast-rising UK singer/songwriter Sam Smith on his West Coast tour in March 2014, and releasing her debut EP this past summer "Generation Call", Kêta seems positioned to take the music industry by storm. 

Kêta’s debut EP features deep-reaching lyrics, masterly vocals and strong lyrical sensibility, featuring hypnotic tracks that perfectly capture Kêta’s intricate and beautifully layered approach to songwriting. 


Kêta first brought her vocal performance to the stage as a little girl, singing for audiences at local civic events, county fairs and church services. But at age ten, Kêta’s singing ambitions were derailed when a case of Lyme disease triggered a fast and drastic decline in her health Misdiagnosed for a year, Kêta entered an advanced stage of the disease and a challenging health crisis. “My life was all doctor’s appointments, tests, needles and experiments with different medications,” recalls Kêta. “I remember lying in bed thinking that I needed to rethink my entire life and who I was going to be. ” Thanks to successfuL treatments and her own determination to overcome her disease, Kêta began her recovery at age 12. As she regained more strength and health back, she returned again to music.

Despite her novice status as a songwriter, Kêta has achieved a singular sound and sensibility right from the start of her music career. A refined vision has guided even the earliest stages of her songwriting as she draws from inspiration from the music she grew up on (“everything from the Supremes to Elvis to Rachmaninoff to Fugazi”) as well as from newer influences like the atmospheric alt-pop of Imogen Heap and Kimbra’s dance-infused indie-rock. Another key factor in Kêta setting herself apart as a singer and songwriter: the intensely inspiring mix of honesty and optimism that informs all of the songs on her debut.

“My music is driven from things I’ve personally gone through. My goal is always to recognize the negative to bring out the positive, because I believe that life is what you make it”
