Kina was born on August 4, 1985 in Mission Viejo, California. In high school, she used to mess around on her aunt’s too-big Martin. Then, for her 16th birthday, she got her very own Kina-sized guitar, started learning chords and writing songs. Her first gig was at Diedrich Coffee in Mission Viejo, where she was also employed dispensing caffeinated beverages to bleary-eyed commuters. Since then she’s performed at a variety of venues around Orange County. Now a student at the University of Southern California, she’s also played at various LA venues, including USC, the Ragazzi Room, Genghis Cohen, The Cat Club, and the Knitting Factory.

In her sophomore year she was lucky enough to be selected by the Thornton School of Music to produce a CD, the result of which is the 6-song EP available for purchase from the media page. This (2006-2007) is Kina’s last year at USC. Until graduation, you can still find her playing gigs in both Los Angeles and Orange County, raising money for textbooks and trying to catch the ear of a label scout. She especially loves when little kids dance to her music, so come out to the shows to show your support, and bring the whole family!

Kina has two parents, two sisters, two snakes, and a dog that sleeps a lot.
