HerStory

Kia is a product of Harlemworld, NYC, and spent most of her childhood split between Washington D.C. and Atlanta.   She spent many years working in entertainment in Los Angeles, but has returned to NYC because there is no place like home.

 Kia Muze's career has rounded its first circle.  She started out as a 5 year old Suzuki violinist, added oboe and percussion (with questionable rhythm) to the mix for a time, then moved on to classical voice at Duke University.  College yielded an internship at Rowdy Records/Arista under the helm of Dallas Austin and Clive Davis when she joined the girl duo 3rd of July.  They were quickly picked up by the indie label Outhouse Records, but unfortunately, the group broke up before that album could be released.  

Kia Muze spent several years in NYC and traveling the country working onstage in musicals, most notably with Motown founder Berry Gordy and director of NBC's The Wiz and Hairspray Live!, Kenny Leon,  then moved to Los Angeles and worked in television, working with Martin Sheen on The West Wing,  and on several soaps and other cable shows.  Never departing far from her musical roots, Kia started the label 1 Nation World Groove which provides pop and contemporary music for artists as well as film and tv cues to libraries, music supervisors and publishers. She has also worked as a Client Manager at music software companies such as East West and Native Instruments with artists such as Kid Capri, Bryan-Michael Cox, Sugarland, and BT just to name a few. Kia's latest releases are the Flood EP in collaboration with Leisure Sports Records as well as her new singles, No More Mr. Nice Girl on 1 Nation and Speaking My Language with DJ Abby AB.  Her second EP was released on July 3, titled 3 Piece 'N A Biscuit.  Her most recent single Accordian was released fourth quarter 2018.  In 2018 she also founded ONA Sounds to distribute her royalty free vocal and found sound packs as well as #SongsThatWork, a live coaching and online course that helps indie artists, write THEIR best song, distribute elegantly and inexpensively and gives them the turn key systems to market their songs daily or weekly to the platforms and people that will use their songs in media and enterprise businesses yielding earnings well above Spotify and Apple Music streams.  She has created a vehicle to share the success methods she uncovered while Client Managing Tier 1 Artists and bedroom producers during her employment at music tech firms in Hollywood.
