Kimie Miner
Kimie Miner
Born Kimie (pronounced Kimi-ay) Kauikeolani Miner, in Hawaii, this 25 year old singer/songwriter has developed an eclectic musical style all her own. Her parents, of Hawaiian and Portugese decent, noticed her unmistakable talent at a very young age. "I fell in love with music as a child and it naturally just became apart of my life. It is my mother, my brother, my best friend, and my first love. No matter where I am in my life, I know I can always turn to music."

A self taught guitarist and song writer, Kimie grew as a musical artist while boarding at Kamehameha Schools in Honolulu, HI. "India.Arie inspired me to pick up a guitar when I was 14 years old and write from my heart. Other artists like Lauryn Hill and Erykah Badu showed me how to be an individualist and remain true to myself."

Kimie's signature style weaves acoustic soul, reggae, hawaiian with a touch of R&B and funk, into cool sultry melodies. Her free spirit can be heard through her lyrics touching on love, life, and relationships. "When something happens in my life, whether good or bad, I can almost immediately hear it being sung to a melody. Each situation creates a different mood. The words follow." Her lyrics prove universal, spanning race, gender, and age.

Kimie has toured the west coast opening for reggae pioneer Barrington Levy. She has also collaborated with reggae's most prolific production team, Sly and Robbie, She has traveled the world, living and recording in Jamaica, Hong Kong, Tahiti and Hawai'i.
Tenelle
Tenelle
Tenelle isn't exactly sure of when her love for singing first started, but suggests that "growing up in Carson CA, with a big family, where talent shows are more competitive than the X-Factor itself." As a child, Tenelle recalls listening to artists such as Lauryn Hill, Betty Wright, and Joss Stone, while watching films such as the original Sparkle, dreaming of the big stage. Years later she would find herself on that stage performing her #1 hit singles "Flava" and "Get Some" in front of hundreds and thousands of people all over the world including Japan, New Zealand, Australia, the Pacific Islands, and the U.S.
