With influences ranging from classic rock and jazz to Amy Winehouse and Lauryn Hill, Klio has learned to translate her musical upbringings into a sound all her own. By experimenting with different styles, she’s proud to have developed a vocal delivery that is at once enticing and powerful.

Growing up singing everything from opera to jazz, King Klio has been a musician for as long as she can remember. Having always felt that music was more than simply therapeutic, she needs to sing in order to function. Talking about times in her life where that creativity has been stifled, she jokes: “I’m hell to be around.”

By embracing the DIY aesthetic of today’s music scene, she has learned to take charge of her own music and to forge a path where she is in control.

‘Old Me’ is available now via all major digital outlets.
