Kaye-Ree: Cosmopolitan Soul

Based in Frankfurt, Germany, travels to Miami, Atlanta, Philly, NYC and Africa. International Mystery Woman, double agent? Nope, globetrotting performer. Green eyed Persian/German siren Kaye-Ree blends soul, hip hop, R&B and classical guitar and comes up with songs that recall Alica Keys, Goapele, Corrine Bailey Rae, Sade and Erykah Badu. A debut album entitled "Endless Melody" as well as a single of the same name were released on Amazon in Germany this year.

The Nightfly's favorite track: "Endless Melody": pure, effortless Alica Keys/Goapele vocals circle above a landscape of sundrenched Spanish guitar.
