Singer, songwriter and producer, Kali Claire, spills on her musical firsts - from obstacles faced to meeting Tinie Tempah and more.
Hackney girl, Kali Claire, has just dropped her new track “Temporary Feels” with fellow East Londoner, Jvck James. Produced by Loner Beats, the contemporary R&B tune showcases Kali and Jvck’s smooth vocals as they intertwine smoothly throughout the song.
The new number follows on from Kali’s previous singles, “Wild” and “Disrespekt”, which were released earlier this year. In 2020, Kali sjared her second EP ‘Songs By The Pool’, whilst her debut EP, ‘Symptoms of a Teen’, came out in 2019. In the past two years, Kali Claire has been going from strength to strength.
Growing up, Kali Claire was exposed to a range of influences – from the psychedelic leanings of The Beatles, played by her grandmother, to pulsing jungle, R&B, and hip-hop from her mother. Kali tells Notion that she “always wanted to be an artist”, but “it just took me so long to work up some confidence”. Having thrown herself in at the deep end, it looks like Kali is mastering her swimming technique.
