Kiesza

This Canadian-born singer started out as a folk artist but later cut her teeth on the London and New York club scenes. She's accomplished the rare trick of pulling those underground sounds into the bona fide mainstream: Her breakout single "Hideaway" brought bubbling, R&B-inflected deep house to the Top 40, taking off so meteorically that it landed Kiesza on hit-parade bills like the Jingle Ball tour. Fans can likely expect the reveal of a few new — and probably unapologetically poppier — songs at her Ultra show. It comes just before the release of her forthcoming album, which features work from Swedish Eurovision finalist Loreen.
