Career

In her childhood days, Kina Grannis used to compose songs and practice alone. At the age of fifteen, she started learning guitar by herself. She was very shy to let others know about her passion for music. When she was in University of Southern California (USC), her talent started getting noticed. She was chosen by the Thornton School of Music in her university to compose a six-song Extended Play (EP). It was released in 2005. She also sang in bars and coffee shops in her teens.

In 2006, she started posting videos on YouTube, and in 2008, she competed for an online musical competition organized by Frito-Lay for their Doritos Crash the Super Bowl contest. She sang a 60-second part of her original song ‘Message From Your Heart’ which was viewed by 100 million viewers and received the maximum voting, turning the tables in her favor. Apart from receiving a cash prize of $10,000, she also won the opportunity to sign a deal with the renowned recording house Interscope Geffen A&M Records. However, she felt that the terms of the deal were interfering with her freedom as a composer and artist. So she left the deal in the beginning of 2009.

In 2010, she self-released her new album ‘Stairwells’, which hit the Billboard 200. She received the title of Sirius/XM CoffeeHouse's 2010 Singer-Songwriter Discovery of the Year. In 2011 she was chosen as the ‘Best Web-Born’ singer by MTV O Music. In April 2011, she embarked on a music tour to Canada, parts of Europe and south-east Asia with her single ‘World in front of Me’ as the theme song. Later that year, she sprang into action again with another world tour covering Europe, Australia, Asia and North America for her music video ‘In your Arms’, which was released in November 2011.

Some of Kina’s popular hit albums are ‘In Memory of the Singing Bridge’ (2006), ‘One More in the Attic’ (2006), ‘Stairwells’ (2010), and ‘Elements’ (2014). Her best known singles include ‘Message From Your Heart’ (2008), ‘In Your Arms’ (2011), ‘Valentine’ (2011), ‘The One You Say Goodnight To’ (2012).

Kina Grannis also has a slight interest in acting. She appeared in a short tele-series ‘Funemployed’ (2010), romantic short film ‘The Last’ (2012), and web series ‘Single by 30’ (2016).
