R&B-inflected pop singer-songwriter Kingsley made the jump from Chi-Town to P-Town a year and a half ago. A week after graduating from Northern Illinois University, she followed a romantic relationship out west (it didn't work out but don't stress, it was for the best) and found a fresh love for making music and being a part of the local music scene.
After landing a job as an artist liaison for The Old Church concert hall, she "dove right back into the music world," Kingsley says. Her new single "Ghost" is a fresh debut for her and "my first single released since 2011!" she exclaims.
“'Ghost' was written because of a stupid boy (of course) who left my life just as quick as he came," she explains. "Ghosting is a slang term used when someone disappears from your life suddenly, [no longer] texting and calling every day like they used to, for no reason at all. It’s a haunting feeling being left in the dark, something lots of people can relate to. I just hope the ghoster I wrote this about hears me loud and clear... I found another!”
Recorded in SE Portland, Kingsley's newfound music community provided support to create this song. Co-written by Ashley Kervabon (aka Ashley Xtina), "Ghost" also features production by Jack Kennedy of Zarr Studios and backup vocals by rising Portland pop-folk singer Laryssa Birdseye.
"This track is only the start!" Kingsley proclaims. "I plan on releasing my EP one single at a time over the course of the next few months. This EP is a project of the collections of amazing, talented Portland musicians and I am so very excited to share it with the world."
