A Trinidad-born artist with rhythm in her blood, Keba’s soul-flavored songs are an exploration of becoming a self-made American woman. Her playful yet powerful lyrics are an anthem of empowerment and inner strength.
Reminiscent of classic artists like Whitney Houston, Aretha Franklin and Chaka Khan, Keba’s voice has captivated audiences around the world. Her songs are a sensual fusion of Pop, R&B and Soul, accented with exotic rhythms and cinematic climaxes. Her lyrics combine raw vulnerability with a playful exploration of love, femininity and identity as a first-generation immigrant and millennial.
Keba’s powerful vocals and electrifying stage presence deliver live shows that move audiences to their feet. She regularly headlines prestigious venues in South Florida with her band and made her international stage debut as an opening act for Jill Scott and Kool & the Gang at the 2015 Tobago Jazz Experience. In 2016, Keba embarked on a European tour of Portugal, France, England and Spain.
As an independent artist determined to blaze her own trail, Keba’s songs inspire others to express themselves and make their own dreams come true. In 2018, she released the original EP, FILMSTRIP to mark the eve of her transformation from a girl into a woman. As Keba evolves, so does her unfiltered honesty about the complexities and power of being a woman. In her 2019 video album: Keba & The Usual Suspects, Live from the Dungeon, she continues to push the envelope, leading her all male band in a live studio session captured on film. With each song, Keba & The Usual Suspects deliver real, raw and palpable sounds and visuals to create the ultimate sensory experience of their music.
