Kinny

Caitlin ‘Kinny’ Simpson is half Jamaican and half Native Indian and was born in Canada. She is a classically trained Opera singer, but her love for reggae and jazz always came first and touring with a reggae band resulted in her visiting Norway and deciding to live there. This is where she met Espen and beautiful music began! After the release of the album, Kinny became a regular visitor to the UK with gigs at The Big Chill, Cargo, Jazz Café, Concorde 2, Native, and across Europe. From these travels she hooked up with a variety of producers and started making some fine, fine music. Her track with TM Juke on his Forward album was a sign of things to come. Since then she has worked with Nostalgia 77, Hint, Diesler, Quantic as well as being asked to write lyrics and record for Massive Attack. From befriending and working with the musicians and producers around her, her songwriting and collaborations excel from the warmth and personality she puts into the music (along with a special talent) and she delivers some wonderful music.
