Kaciny Singer Songwriter

Music has always been a part of Kaciny’s story.

A child of legacy, Kaciny grew up surrounded by eclectic sounds spanning from the bombastic hip hop of her native Brooklyn, New York to the tender Bossa Nova of Brazil and everything in between. It's no wonder: her father is Haitian Jazz musician/composer Dernst Emile. Her mother is vocalist Yanick Etienne, best known for her work with Bryan Ferry and Roxy Music. Her brother is Grammy and Academy award winning producer, Dernst Emile II (D’Mile).

Since the age of 12, Kaciny synthesized all of those influences and began putting pen to page writing her own songs. Since then, she has produced and written songs for artists like Jordin Sparks and Chris Brown. 

Now she’s ready to tell her own story. With music firmly in the crossroads where indie, soul, and pop meet, she writes every song with her heart on her sleeve. Sweet, yet resolute, Kaciny’s voice is not one to be missed. Her debut EP is set for release in 2023.
