Biography

K*WHY is a uniquely urban sounding rap/RnB duo of UEC and Karla Maxim. Appealing to fans of progressive, modern hip hop, UEC’s intricately crafted rhyme patterns are sweetened by Karla’s crisp, powerful vocal delivery and immersed in a fresh blend of edgy sound.

Both UEC (real name Yui See) and Karla Maxim (real name Karla…Maxim) grew up surrounded by music from a very early age. While UEC improved his abilities by studying theory and refining his piano playing, Karla started by singing along to her favorite Disney cartoons before moving on to more serious solo performances. Finding their own styles as they grew up, UEC took to writing and producing hip hop music while Karla explored various vocal-heavy music genres.

***

A year and a half before K*WHY was formed, Karla and UEC were the lead performers of a Toronto band called Soul Plane. You might remember the band from the third episode of MuchMusic’s Disband where the group became the first ever to win over the show’s notoriously stubborn judges. Known by their fans for their extremely diverse tastes in music (which clearly showed in the writing style) the band had continued to play and put out music for the last couple of years – drawing audiences from all over the city and performing at some of Toronto’s biggest concert venues.
