Talented Bahamian singer, songwriter and visual artist Keeya dropped her catchy debut EP ‘Paradise’.
Written and recorded in LA and at Keeya’s home in Nassau – Bahamas, the four-track EP tells stories which celebrate female empowerment, soulful vocals, wavy synths, crispy 808s and enough bottom end to satisfy all lovers of bass genres. She explains: “Right now in music, I see women having fun again, and that makes me so happy. Women should have the space to be upfront about the things they like and the things they desire. As soon as we finished the demo it felt like a party. Everyone was dancing and vibing.”
“”I Got You” is about striving. It’s about how we take care of each other. If nobody else got us, we got us.”
Keeya’s musical journey started when she finished art school and returned home to Nassau after her mom sadly passed away, leaving her feeling lost and falling into a dark place. During this period she got offered a background singing spot with a local singer and everything took off from there. Eventually, she built up her own solo project, with music becoming her salvation in a way, she explains: “Music was the only thing that made me feel alive. It helped me figure out who I was at a time where I felt really lost.”
