The Story of Polish-American Artist KINGA

Published

on

Kinga Lewandowski, professionally known as KINGA, is a Polish-American artist based in San Francisco. Her genre in music ranges from pop, indie, folk, electronic, and hip-hop because of her talent in both singing and rapping. 

In a video interview, Kinga shares with us how she is developing herself as the artist she is becoming. Here’s how it went:  

Q: Give us a short 1- 2 paragraph bio about yourself. 

My name is Kinga Lewandowski. I go by the stage name KINGA, I’m 21, and I am an upcoming artist from the Bay Area, California. I am a first-generation Polish-American. Both my father and my mother grew up in Warsaw and Wloclawek under difficult circumstances. I was raised in the Roman Catholic faith but I now consider myself as a Christian. I am trilingual, fluent in Polish, English and Italian. I can also speak a little bit of Chinese, Portuguese and Spanish. 

Music is my religion, whenever I feel a certain way I just let my ideas flow out while playing the piano. I think I was given a gift and I use it to fine-tune my skills and talents in music. I used to be in a band at Marin Catholic High School, that’s kind of how it all started. I have been learning music production ever since I turned 13 but it all started when I was just a little kid. I am a self-taught guitar, ukulele, drum, and bass player. I have been classically trained on the piano since I was 4.

Q: How did you start your career? 

Ever since I was four, I started learning piano and I participated in many competitions throughout my life. I had a band in 7th grade and then I started making music when I was 13, and had a home studio since my 15th birthday. When I went to college, I was lucky enough to be one of the few recipients of a piano performance scholarship for the University of San Diego.

I just always wanted to be a musician. I remember in eighth grade when I was 12, I had this project where we were asked where we see ourselves in 10 years, and I answered, “being a musician and sharing my music”, which 9 years later, is what I’m doing. That’s just crazy to me. My whole point in writing music is to inspire other people, especially children who get an early start with music. I’d also like to help people understand that they are not alone in what they are going through and it doesn’t matter your age.

Q: List the successes that you would like to highlight for this article

My biggest success so far in my music career was receiving first place in a piano competition. Another has been playing in two showcases both in Brooklyn, New York, which was pretty grand, the crowd always had a good energy. The greatest accomplishments have definitely been in the past two years of my music career. I was my own manager, I made my own merchandise, and I got my own shows. I think that’s been my biggest success so far: playing in front of thousands of different people in different cities. 

I’ve been performing for the past two years and I started performing since I was 19. I’ve played in L.A, in San Diego, and I even performed privately in Poland many times, as well as in Italy, New York, and most of the time in San Francisco. I’ve also played all over Europe, Tenerife, and California. I have a new single coming out on Monday, 2.1.2021 and my first showcase of this year will be in Los Angeles on 4.19.2021. 

Q: If TMZ interviews you today, how do you want to be perceived and positioned? 

If TMZ interviewed me today, I’d like to be perceived as a humble artist. I feel like I have had a lot of success in my life but everything is a blessing. I feel like I have found greater meaning and purpose in life and the connections that I have been making have been really good for me and good for other people.

Q: What key projects are you working on and what are your key goals for the coming year?

The main project I’m working on is an EP that brings many artists together from all over the world. I’m creatively directing this project that involves these different artists from Brazil, Poland, Italy…etc. I’m also working towards completing a stripped-down album that requires me to go back to older projects. My key goal for the coming year is to start doing shows again and to do many collaborations with as many artists as I can. 

Q: What principles and values have you learned so far on your journey to success?

I like to live in virtue. I’m a very straightforward, authentic and honest person–I say it as it is. I don’t sugar coat things, if a friend asks me for help with a project, I’ll tell them what I honestly think. I’ll give them some constructive criticism which is helpful to know what to improve and what to keep or take out. It doesn’t help to tell someone what they want to hear because they might not be able to improve their craft or work. I tell them my honest opinion.

Q: What aspects of life do you think anyone striving to follow your career path should focus on? 

Mental health is a really, really big thing. My whole life I’ve always been a true firm believer to care about your mental health first, then care about school, music, passions, or hobbies. For me, the order is mental health, school, career, love, family and friends. I feel like attacking each one individually until the first one is good. I had so many issues with my mental health then I got help. I’ve gone through enough things to understand that this should be the order for myself. I’m focusing on my mental health right now and music really heals me. I then focus on school and being up-to-date on projects, assignments and classes, and then relationships.

CeCe has a new album on release in the upcoming days.

CeCe’s Recent Work

Cece began her career as a talent manager, eventually moving into production because she knows how tough it can be for outsiders to get into the business and see the genuine potential for growth at the micro-scale. Her album brought together up-and-coming musicians and well-known artists with a larger target audience on the same platform. This album provided her with the opportunity to encourage up-and-coming artists to do their finest work, which could compete with a more known artist. Her album and tracklist were recently released, and the lineup is incredible. There will be performances by some of our favorite American artists, such as yungtory and K camp, as well as Afrobeat stars like Bella Shmurda, Bad Boy Timz Ayo Jay, and others, as well as some of the country’s most exciting up-and-comers.

“NY Love Story,” her latest song, is out now.

CeCe teamed up with a number of New York City-based organizations and producers to bring you a heartfelt message about how millennials’ romantic desires could change in 2020. As you might be aware, love may have a positive or negative impact; if you live in New York City, you are also aware of the many challenges that relationships face.

Amber Simone, Vino, and Capella Grey are featured on the new single “A NY Love Story.”

“Everything I Know,” a new single featuring Dermo and K Camp, is out now.

The album is a heartfelt, no-holds-barred declaration of passion for anyone unique. A warm, welcoming rhythm complements the development, making it ideal for a romantic weekend between two people. Dremo sets the tone for the rest of the album with his silky melodic vocal delivery, alternating between pidgin English and Yoruba. With his seductive vocals and a short tale about finding the love of his life, K Camp follows suit. I never expected to see these two collaborate on a project, but their personalities are so complimentary.

CeCe’s track “All I Need” is taken from her upcoming album, including Dremo and K Camp. The Bronx native has also founded her talent management firm, Ataria Inc, and is set to release her official debut album in the near future.

CeCe’s Background

This executive producer/singer, who was born in Nigeria and raised in New York City, is one of the music industry’s newest entrants. On the other hand, CeCe is no stranger to the music world, having made a name for herself for her Ataria NYC clothing line and Afrobeat-infused fashion shows.

Her experience as a recording promoter, talent manager, retail magnate, and retailer allows her to follow in the footprints of these legendary forefathers.

How DmtDream Expresses His Psychedelic World Through Music

Published

on

There are instances when the physical world becomes too much to handle. As a result, many of us try to find refuge in something intangible like the spiritual or mental to give us respite from the daily trappings of life. 

For rapper and influencer DmtDream, psychedelics became his escape from the mundane. It also serves as a heavy influence on his music. 

As a conscious artist, DmtDream is also known as Dmt, Lsd, Dosed, and Dream. He grew up on the outskirts of Flint, Michigan in her late teens. After high school, he moved to the East Side where he dove into psychedelics and music. 

DmtDreamused music to get through some of the hardest moments in his life, and with the help of psychedelics, he was also able to see a better picture of how he wanted to live out his life. 

“Trying to show the good and positive sides of psychedelic and how they can teach you how to understand yourself so you can help the ones around elevate their level of thinking, movements, and overall vibrational patterns,” he said. 

Currently, the psychedelic artist has been recognized by publications Elevator, Apple News, and Medium. He’s also a Google verified artist. He also amassed a total of 15,000 listeners on Apple Music, 25,000 on Spotify, and 11,500 on YouTube. 

Getting Involved In The Community

Even though DmtDream is known for his music, he prefers to be recognized as an influencer who leaves a positive mark in his community. 

His most recent project is more of a medical mission than a musical journey. He was part of a medical takeback that they do once a year in Flint where people like DmtDream take expired medicine to be disposed of properly and safely to keep these dangerous drugs from getting in the hands of the youth.

This way, not only does DmtDream promote the safe use of pharmaceuticals, but he also keeps the younger generation from abusing said substances which could lead to adverse effects. 

Being His Genuine Self 

Throughout his career in music and as an influencer, DmtDream realized that he should stick to his authentic self rather than try to be someone he’s not. 

By being true to himself, the psychedelic artist believes that he can best fight for what he truly believes in and be able to start the change that he wants to see in his community. 

Plus, authenticity, according to DmtDream, can get anyone farther in the music industry since people can connect as well as relate to artists who are to their feelings and beliefs.
