Wikipedia introduces you as “Lakisha Kimberly Robinson (born May 10, 1990), known professionally as Kilo Kish, is an American singer-songwriter and visual artist.” But how would you introduce yourself?
I would introduce myself as Kish. I’m an artist, amongst other things. I’m inspired by exploring creatively and learning as much as I can in this lifetime. I also really love gardening, personal study projects, and food.
You’re working together with GANT. Why do you think it’s such a good match for you?
When I initially met with the creatives and team at GANT, they seemed inspired by creating organic relationships with artists and redefining what American sportswear can be. I had already been exploring my relationship with Americana for this album cycle, so I was already in that new future’s headspace. I think they are also quite open creatively, which is refreshing.
Tell us more about your collaboration with GANT? Besides being the face of the campaign, what did the collaboration entail?
We worked together to craft the feel of the video on set, and I created music for the campaign (along with producer Ray Brady), inspired by our time shooting in Lisbon.
