Kanisha K - Reared in a small town two hours outside of Detroit Kanisha K has been exposed to all of Motown’s finest as well as the best of Chicagoan traditions; from an urban, sultry-lushness that goes ‘pop’ to rock that dances amidst songs of ill-fated lovers. Kanisha K, for all intents and purposes, is living [chasing] the dream of every small town girl with uptown talent. However, that’s where Kanisha’s normalcy ends. After all, not every small town girl (let alone any girl) has already been produced by Grammy-winning producers (Jason Miles/Craig Bauer), had two high-charting hit singles – “My Another Day” and “I Found Love (Just In Time For Christmas)” – and is still relatively unknown.
