G.O.O.D. Music‘s latest female protegé is a 21-year old singer/songwriter by the name of Kacy Hill. Shot by Anthony Trevino, RSVP Gallery speaks to the Yeezy co-signed artist about her choice to make music, musical preferences, and loving Gucci’s aesthetic.
RSVP: What made you decide to make music?
K: I grew up playing classical music. I played the oboe and the saxophone. I also sang in choirs. That was something I’ve always enjoyed but I didn’t really have the opportunity to explore music outside of that kind of world. By growing up in AZ, I don’t think I realized I could do music on any other level. I didn’t write songs or aspire to do any of that. Just by the fact that I figured that was the only thing I really connected with. Then I moved out to LA when I was 18. Didn’t really know anyone but wanted to take a gap year from school. I ended up meeting a producer and a photographer. I started making stuff with them. That felt really cool and it was the first time I really wrote songs. Something really clicked and I thought… this was something I am supposed to be doing. Probably two months after starting to write my songs while I was touring with Kanye as a dancer, he heard my songs, and I was signed soon after that.
RSVP: Do you remember the first album you purchased?
K: Yeah! It was ‘…Baby One More Time’ by Britney Spears. It’s such a good album.
RSVP: Do you have a favorite brand? Or do you find yourself wearing some designers more than others?
K: I really like the aesthetic of Gucci right now. Alessandro Michele is such a god in recreating Gucci. I really like Mary Katrantzou. She made a whimsical collection with some kind of psychedelic inspired pieces. I like more whimsical stuff. I’ve always been a fan of Prada because I’ve always thought it to be so fun. There are a lot of brands who do elevated basics but I really do like the retro stuff more.
