Kiesza is just 25, but she’s already experienced more than many of us do in a lifetime. Born in Calgary, Canada, and now based in New York, she’s a trained ballerina, she spent her teenage years in the Royal Canadian Navy and such a keen shot, the Army tried to recruit her as a sniper! And now, she’s on the brink of major music stardom.<br /><br />The electro-pop singer songwriter’s debut single, ‘Hideaway’, is packed with deep house grooves and shimmering soulful melodies, reflecting a hybrid of musical influences. It bowed at No. 1 on the UK singles chart in April. This former queen of the high seas is now plotting a course to the epicentre of pop. In 2014, her voyage is just beginning, and everyone is welcome along for the ride!
