The critically-acclaimed debut single, VIGILANTE, recently launched Kai Exos into a three-week mini tour this Spring. Packed houses in Tokyo, Berlin and Ireland; alongside intimate showcases in London, LA and Toronto have garnered praise for Kai’s powerhouse vocals and earnest lyrics.
Kai Exos is an American-bred, Canadian-born singer with deeply rooted foundations in gospel music. As a young songwriter, a grade school teacher discovered his misplaced notebook scrawled with poetry and piano notation. Kai, encouraged by his own musically-talented Mother, began performing in church, rattling through his teenage years doing lo-fi rock covers in Miami, Seattle, Chicago and NYC. Collaborating in Toronto and Vancouver with award-winning producers and fellow musicians over a whirlwind Summer gave way to his first independent studio album, TELEGRAPH.
“These stories are about fighting off heartbreak, ’cause I tend to throw myself into anything new,” says Kai, recalling his defiant upbringing as a youngster. “So many of my early influences are in these 11 tracks,” he adds with a nod to motown-era soul.
