Kissie Lee got her start in music in the heart of Atlanta. Her songwriting and singing abilities led her to join singer-songwriter Keke Wyatt on tour. The journey started after that, which she was kind enough to share with rolling out. Needless to mention, she hasn’t turned around yet.
What made you want to pursue music?
When I was 6-years-old, I went to a birthday party at a theater where they did improv singing and dancing. I went home after and told my mom I liked it so much that I wanted to do it. From there my path was music.
Who or what has influenced you the most?
My inspiration for music is probably my love for it. Artists that I really draw a lot of inspiration from are Aaliyah, Mary J Blige, Babyface and the Isley Brothers.
Let’s talk about your most recent project. What was the source of inspiration?
The single “Sheesh,” featuring LightSkinnKeisha, comes from when you break up from a relationship. Then you get real cute and post the best pics on the gram and put a Drake caption under it… just to show him what he lost.
The majority of artists have a mentor. Who are the ones you have?
Musical icon Keke Wyatt has been very important in my musical journey.
What affirmations do you repeat to yourself that contribute to your success?
I don’t really have that many affirmations I just stay positive. I remind myself that everything is how it is supposed to be.
What do you want to listen to when you’re not singing?
I listen to so many different artists and songs but lately, it’s been Bruno Mars, Ty Dolla Sign and Instrumentals.
What is next for you?
Releasing my new project “Let You In” and touring. I love people and cannot wait to get back to sharing my gift with the world.
