who is she? Kai brant
“It was Mystery Lady [Etta James tribute to Billie Holiday] that made me want to dive deep into the world of jazz.”
KAI BRANT is an American singer/songwriter residing in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Kai's jazz and blues influences are American legends Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, and Etta James, but she also pulls from British artists such as Skye Edwards (Morcheeba) and Beth Gibbons (Portishead). Her upcoming debut with The Las Vegas Jazz Trio (Release date: October 3, 2019) combines her sultry vocal style with dixieland-vibes and unique arrangements of songs like "Comes Love", "Back to Black", and "Me, Myself, and I".
Deemed the "Iroquois Princess", her family comes from the Oneida Tribe within the Iroquois Nation, and her surname is after the Mohawk Chief, Joseph Brant. "Singing provides me the unique opportunity to be a modern-day Peacemaker, performing for people of all nations, backgrounds, and beliefs... celebrating and being one, if even for a brief moment in time."
Performances include those at Aria, Bellagio, Caesars Palace, MGM Grand, Palazzo, Planet Hollywood, Treasure Island, Tropicana, Venetian, Waldorf Astoria, and Wynn.
After a long and eventful journey of studying music, voice, and the art of entertainment, her passion for jazz is now being fully realized with The Las Vegas Jazz Trio. "I cannot think of a better way to enter the next decade... creating music, sharing my voice, and meeting some amazing people along the way. I am grateful in this moment to share my passion with you, and grateful to my audience for being open to the power of music and to the power of spirit."
