Kais Khoury, known professionally as KAIS, is a Canadian, Jordanian-born singer/songwriter and recording artist currently based on the island of Cyprus, where he runs his own recording studio: Hot Soap Studios.
Since he began songwriting from a young age, he has creatively addressed a wide array of topics. Recognizing music as a tool that could move and influence people, he first wrote about world issues like war and global warming. Today, KAIS' poetic complexities have grown to express the plain difficulties of being human. Always a lover of mysticism, he's woven a fine balance between natural inclinations and the demands of the social world.
Producing a mixture of Indie-Alt, Psychedelic Soul-infused Blues & Folk Rock, KAIS falls nothing short of peachy as he demonstrates influence by quintessential acts like Jeff Buckley, Coldplay, Radiohead and Gary Clark Jr. Prominent achievements include an 'Honorary Mention' at the 2016 International Songwriting Competition, a 'Best Out of Province' nomination at the Toronto Independent Music Awards and a 'Lyrics Finalist' in the USA Songwriting Competition.
KAIS' songwriting has truly flirted with the fresh and the groundbreaking, and although he has retired from live performing in the last couple of years in order to support his family business, he slowly continues to translate what speaks to his heart into more mature and powerfully moving songs, all to be released in due time.
