She also serves on the Board of Governors for the Hawaiʻi Academy of Recording Arts (HARA) and the Recording Academyʻs Pacific NorthWest Chapter.
Kimié’s parents, who are of Hawaiian and Portuguese descent, noticed her affinity for music at a very young age, and at 14-years-old she taught herself to play guitar and began writing her own original songs. While attending Kamehameha Schools as a boarding student on Oʻahu, she honed in on her songwriting. She found inspiration in a wide range of music from Hawaiian, Jazz and R&B-influenced individuals such as Israel Kamakawiwo'ole, India.Arie, Lauryn Hill, and Eva Cassidy.
