10 Fast Facts with G.O.O.D Music Protege Kacy Hill
When singer-songwriter Kacy Hill was growing up in Phoenix, Arizona, she probably never imagined oboe and saxophone lessons would lead her to signing a major record deal with Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music imprint. The former American Apparel model was discovered during her tenure as a backup dancer for West’s year-long Yeezus tour, which began in 2013 and concluded in 2014. Her breakout single, “Experience,” first established her as a burgeoning talent to keep an eye on. Hill, who proves to be quite modest, doesn’t elaborate too much on how the single secured her a place in the G.O.O.D. family, but in previous interviews she has revealed that West signed her almost immediately after getting his hands on a copy.
Part of Hill’s appeal lies in just how relatable her lyrics feel. Often they tackle the nuances of human interactions, mapping a blueprint of the highs and lows of relationships in a way that can be as easily applied to intimate interludes as it can be to strained family ties or friendships grown distant.
