Kali Uchis

Kali Uchis is one of my favorite singers ever. Her voice gets me high & I start daydreaming like it’ll be summer forever. According to Billboard:

Kali Uchis is a soul singer for the modern era. The Colombian-born artist builds songs from well-chosen samples, and draws on a wide variety of sounds & influences {…}

Uchis loves instrumental backdrops scavenged from the sweet sounds of the ’60s & ’70s — reggae, R&B & jazz. {…} Uchis’s vocals channel the tender pain of Billie Holiday over Ralfi Pagan’s pleasant vibraphones & sugary doo-wop. “Music nowadays is all about having no feelings & being too cool,” Uchis tells Billboard. “I wanted to reference classic shit from times when people let themselves be raw & vulnerable.” {…}

Uchis is releasing more music soon: an EP titled Por Vida is coming in 2015. It will include production from Bunx, who produced bass-heavy “Know What I Want,” and Tyler, The Creator.

I decided to make a simple illustration inspired by one of my favorite pictures of her {I had an urge to draw these past days & since I was listening to her music non-stop I decided to portrait her as well}. I loved the result, Kali herself is cute but the Teresa de Lisieux’s portrait is shitty, I admit I was too tired to do a better work. Anyway, I hope you guys get to know her music & love it as much as I do.
