I was always involved in any community theater projects growing up and organizing street shows as a kid. When I started going solo as 'Chiki', first I played in dives and charity, basically any place that would book me. Once I started gaining notoriety as a pop artist, I was invited to play in Mall shows with people like Kat Deluna and Lucas Prata. From there, I've been opening for people like Jesse McCartney, Jonas Brothers, Natasha Beddingfield, Metro Station, Leona Lewis and many more. I really like all ages shows, the vibe is always the happiest and without pretense.
I am a mix because I have a very ecelectic appreciation for music. I am POP, that's how I would classify myself. Catchy but not too slicked over- I am quirky so that comes out in my music. Mostly what I try to funnel through my music is feel good emotions and or something honest. I'm different than a lot of pop artists because I am influenced by popular culture but I am not superficial about it.
Microphone of course, I'm a singer and that's my main instrument. When I'm writing, I use the Piano but I am mostly ear trained. I just started learned Protools because I just started producing also.
