Rapping and performing since she was a teenager, 22 year-old Kay has gained a reputation in Newcastle as one of the hardest working artists there is. Her sound fuses the flair and style of modern hip-hop with the skill and sensibilities of the golden era, hitting with the vube of Lil Uzi Vert and the substance of Mos Def. Having already supported hip-hop legends like The Game, KRS One, DJ Yella and Akala, to name but a few, Kay continues to create her own legend.
Kay’s exuberant live performances, including one at The Royal Albert Hall for the MYF Youth Proms, another at BBC Introducing Live in London, a packed out performance at Hit The North music festival and a string of top-drawer singles earned her the award of Newcomer of the Year at the 2019 Journal Culture Awards. ‘Over and Over’ is her third release on Soul Kitchen Recordings (Jake Bugg) and follows previous releases ‘Paris’ and the fashion victim expose ‘Out of Time’.
