About Kay.Tunes | New Single, “It Ain’t Love”


Sometimes stars are made, and sometimes stars are born.  Rising R&B star Kaneik Tune’s last name is no coincidence; she was born to sing. 

“My last name didn’t happen by chance. This is my destiny,” says the soulful performer who is better known by her stage name Kay.Tunes.

Born and raised in Richmond, Virginia, Kay.Tunes began singing at an early age.  The first song she learned to sing was, “This Little Light of Mine” in daycare when she was three. She came home later that day and belted it out for her mother.

At the age of six, Kay.Tunes won her first talent show singing, “This House” by Tracey Spencer. The win further ignited her passion for performing as she continued to compete and win local talent shows throughout Virginia. At 13 years old, she won a chance to compete at the world famous Apollo Theater in Harlem, where she blew the audience away.

As a teenager Kay.Tunes realized that she wanted to pursue a career in music full-time. However, after high school she was encouraged to go to college and get a degree so she would “have something to fall back on.”  Kay.Tunes attended Old Dominion College but her heart was not in it, so she left school to pursue a career in music.

While holding up to three different part-time jobs at a time, Kay.Tunes honed her skills as a songwriter by developing songs for other artists as she continued create a buzz for herself a singer and performer in the Virginia music scene.

Upon chance meeting at a friend’s recording studio, Tunes met producer/songwriter Demario “Rio” Bridges who had been hearing about the talented singer for some time.  Rio, the founder of SavantSoundz. LLC, a production company based in Virginia, had worked with various artists including Grammy nominated entertainers such as Raphael Saadiq, Ashanti, P.Diddy, and Christina Aguilera among others.  As a producer and music visionary, Rio immediately saw the talent that Tunes possessed and wanted to work with her. Together, the duo looks to collaborate and bring substance back to music. 

In addition to collaborating with Rio, for her upcoming project Kay.Tunes has enlisted music heavyweights to produce her album including: producers Lee (“The Inkredibles”)Major Kid (Jay Z, Young Jeezy, Flo-Rida, Wyclef, Mary J Blidge, Nas); Theo Edmonds (Young Berg, Noreaga); Sound H Productions (Skillz); and Grammy Award winning, multi-platinum selling producer Gerard Thomas (Destiny’s Child, Missy Elliott, Ashanti, Mel B from the Spice Girls).

When speaking on her upcoming project, Kay.Tunes states, “This music movement is so needed and people will be able to relate.  Our music is so relatable, it’s refreshing.”

Moreover, Kay.Tunes is refreshing. She is a breath of fresh air to the industry.  She is a gifted artist, who loves the craft of making music. Her passion shows through in her music and is the reason why she is destined to make an impact on R&B music.

She was born to make music; her last name is not a coincidence.
