Kiana Valenciano wants to be seen and everyone has taken notice.
The release of her first full-length album See Me, which dropped earlier this year via Tarsier Records, was just a little bit of a sneak peek of what she has to offer the world.
It's truly under the spotlight where she shines the brightest. Kiana has reigned over multiple stages across the globe, recently dominating Music Matters in Singapore last week. Next up, she will be taking over the ABS-CBN Vertis Tent with Jeremy Zucker at Karpos Live Mix 8 tonight (09/24).
In this edition of our Roll Call series, Kiana answers a few random questions with photos from her camera roll.
What's the one thing you can't live without?
My passport. If you can’t already tell by the state of my passport, I love to travel. I love immersing myself in different cultures and seeing as much of the world as I possibly can.
Show us your most recent OOTD.
I had just come home from an event called Suit Social. Fun night!
Show us a photo of your most memorable gig.
This was the night I opened for Mahalia. I am such a huge fan of hers, so to open for her felt like a dream.
Show us a photo from the last time you hit the studio.
Billy Davis hard at work. We worked on 2 tracks that day.
What's the last thing you listened to?
Listening to this right now. Love me some Nina Simone.
What's the last album you bought?
UGH. THOSE. FEELS. AGAIN.
Who are your most favorite people in the world?
My family, forever.
Show us a photo of you and your dog.
This is my favorite photo of us. It’s been 3 years since I took him home and this photo was taken the first time I took him to the beach with me. I was so relieved to find out he loves the water as much as I do.
What did you dress up as last Halloween?
Tim Burton’s Catwoman. Because Michelle Pfieffer killed it and I love her.
What are you reading right now?
Show us a photo from your last holiday/vacation.
Went to the beach with a few friends. Here’s a photo of my friend Lauren and me.
Show us your favorite family photo.
100% this hilarious photo of us in the paper. I also think it’s super crazy how much I look like my mom.
