Los Angeles-based indie songstress Kina Grannis is proud to announce the upcoming release of her sophomore album ELEMENTS. Produced and recorded by Matt Hales (aka Aqualung), the new album follows Kina's breakout 2011 debut STAIRWELLS and showcases a decidedly more mature sound. Aided by Hales, whose recent credits include with Paloma Faith, Alex Clare, Lianne La Havas, Kina's newest songs are filled with layered vocals and harmonies and lush, intricate soundscapes, while documenting a period of growth and change in her personal life, complete with an honesty and a vulnerability that she's excited to share with her fans. Kina's story would not be complete without mentioning how she got to where she is today. In 2007, Kina wrote 'Message from Your Heart,' filmed a video and uploaded it to YouTube. A few months later, her song and video earned her a major label recording contract and aired during the Super Bowl in front of it's 97 million viewers. Kina soon forfeited the record deal, choosing instead to self-release her album and keep creative control.
