One of Atlanta’s freshest and fiercest voices, Kodie Shane has quickly become a unanimous fan and critical favourite. She offers a fresh take on Hip Hop and Pop, with tightly-wound rhymes, clever lyrics and ear-worm melodies over buoyant, genre-blurring beats that have become her calling card. Across 2016 and 2017, she made a name for herself by serving up a series of hits and critically adored projects. 2016’s debut EP Zero Gravity includes the fan-favorite “Sad” [feat. Lil Yachty], which generated millions of Spotify streams, followed by the runaway success of “Drip On My Walk.” Shane spent 2017 creating even more music, with the ten-track Big Trouble Little Jupiter mixtape and seven-track Back From The Future EP.
Across her releases, the artist has garnered praise from The Fader, Pitchfork, Complex, Noisey, Vogue, Pigeons and Planes, Paper, Nylon, W Magazine, Interview Magazine, Mass Appeal and more, with Billboard recently calling her one of 2018’s biggest Pop Stars to watch and she recently covered Teen Vogue’s coveted 21 Under 21 Most Influential issue and Galore’s Music issue. The budding star has also drawn rave reviews on the stage, having spent much of the past few years on the road, headlining shows around the world as well as opening for the likes of Lil Yachty, Lil Uzi Vert, The Internet, Jhené Aiko, Snakehips, Billie Eilish and more. With her debut album ‚Young HeartThrob‘ and now the release of ’NO RAP KAP‘, Kodie Shane remains one of the most exciting new artists to watch out for.
