British singer and multi-instrumentalist Kianja releases her brand new song ‘There’s Nothing More’, via Best Laid Plans. The 20 year-old artist has released two songs already this year, and will drop her debut EP ‘Glory’ in the coming months.
Making an impressive start to her career, Kianja has already received support from BBC 1Xtra who made her debut single ‘I Can’t Make You Love Me’ the ‘Introducing’ track of the week. She’s also been played on Radio 1 by Huw Stephens.
‘There’s Nothing More’ is a song Kianja has been working on for many years, originally having started it at the age of 14 and developing and growing it into the beautiful soul-pop song you hear today. “It’s about longing for love that you can’t fix,” she explains, “It’s gone, but you constantly wish you could repair it.”
Kianja wrote the song, co-written by Dan Smith (Bastille) and produced by Mark Crew and Dan Priddy (Rag’n’Bone Man, James Arthur).
Kianja’s upbringing pointed her directly to a life of creativity. Her mother is a performance poet and scriptwriter, while her father is a gigging guitarist, and her stepfather is a producer and sound engineer. “My dad played a lot of reggae, while my mum was more into R&B and soul. Watching my stepfather in the studio has led me towards the production route too” says Kianja.
