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.

He went from sleeping inside a Recording Studio to Working on Justin Bieber’s song purpose. Meet Gemini Muziq

Published

Hagay Mizrahi, also known by his stage name Gemini Muziq is an American-Israeli songwriter, musician and record producer. When Hagay was six-years-old, his father’s work relocated his family to Taiwan, where they stayed until he was ten. This early exposure to travel and culture set him up for a fascinating life exploring the globe through his own career. He studied piano as a young child and continued this until he enrolled in the military at age 18. 

Upon being dispatched from the army, Hagay enrolled in the Rimon School of Music, where he studied composition and arrangement. During these years, young Hagay traveled to Kingston, Jamaica, where he was first introduced to life as a music producer. During his time in Jamaica, Hagay worked with Ras Daniel, Bob Marley’s percussionist Skully, and Shaggy’s drummer Paul Kastic. 

He collaborated with Dean Fraser and Yossi Fine and worked with some of Israel’s top artists after graduating. These were exciting acts to work with, but there was even more success on the horizon.

A defining moment in Hagay’s career 

The Israeli producer says the defining moment in his career came while working in Pacifique Studios in North Hollywood. During this time, Hagay recorded with many incredible and influential artists such as Christina Aguilera, Lil Wayne and, most notably to him, producer and songwriter Poo Bear. 

Hagay and Poo Bear worked on several songs together, but the most memorable moment came when the two were working on a piano riff in the studio. Hagay didn’t know which artist they were writing for, but he knew it sounded good. That session finished late, and the next day at the studio, Poo Bear told him Justin Bieber loves this song and wanted to use it on his next album. That track ended up being the title song for an album that sold four times platinum, and that evening Hagay knew that he’d been in the right place at the right time.  

A producer’s process 

Hagay believes that properly producing a song takes time, patience and a willingness to take a break. He notes that if he can’t trust his ears after three or four hours of work, it’s important to go away and come back the next day with a “fresh set of ears.” He says that a song should take at least four passes or days before it’s ready to go. Everything needs to sit just right in the mix and should sound good on any sound system. 

Hagay Mizrahi has overcome many obstacles in his lifetime, from clients falling out with investors and leaving him stranded to having to pay back debts and loans he had taken out in Israel. He believes that a willingness to work hard and invest time into his craft is what got him this far, which certainly shows. Hagay has already worked with Justin Beiber, Mario Barret, Common Kings and Christina Millian. It’s exciting to imagine which incredible artists he plans to team up with next.
