Born in Amsterdam, with roots in California and living in Reykjavik for most of her live, she draws inspiration from her different backgrounds.
Starting on classical piano, she later moved over to singing jazz and pop music. Playing with the band FOSS since 2016 they played various venues in the Netherlands. With her bandmates she produces in their studio in Utrecht moody and dreamy songs to listen to late at night.
Her newest music is released under the name of Kai Needie. In her colourful home studio she melts together wobbly synths, catchy guitars and melodic vocals to create her own carefree, dreamlike world.
