Kali Uchis is a star in every sense of the word. The Colombian-born, Virginia-bred artist has only one body of work to her name: Drunken Babble. Nonetheless, the loose collection of songs she recorded in her bedroom began to dabble in the soulful 70s meets new age R&B sound that she has since perfected. Both musically and stylistically, Kali embodies a West coast artist. Her bubbly sound and stunning wardrobe can catch the eye of any Californian and instantly turn him or her to a fan. In fact, a few of those wandering glances have been from California
natives Snoop Dogg and Tyler the Creator, both of whom Uchis has collaborated with. Feeding off these co-signs, Kali played numerous shows up and down the coast and logged studio time with more notable names including Mad Decent figurehead, Diplo.Her confidence is evident, holding her own on the stage as well as in the studio alongside stars and legends alike.
