Her debut album - Stairwells - debuted on Billboard's Top 200 chart (and #2 on its new artist chart) due in large part to her devoted online following.  To date, Kina has amassed nearly 180 million video views, accruing nearly 1.2 million subscribers on her YouTube channel, thanks to unforgettable videos for her original music, including "Valentine" and "In Your Arms."  The latter earned Kina visits to The Ellen Show and Jimmy Kimmel Live and was named one of the Top 10 videos of the year by Time Magazine.  Kina has headlined tours around the world, selling out shows from New York to Los Angeles, London to Berlin and Sydney to Tokyo.


Kina's sophomore album - Elements (via Kina Grannis Records) - written entirely by Kina and produced by Matt Hales (Aqualung), marks an undeniable maturity in songwriting and artistry and documents a period of growth and change in Kina's personal life, complete with an honesty and a vulnerability that she's excited to share with her fans.
