“We’ve All Been In Trouble Before”

Born in Hawaii, Kimié Miner fell in love with music at an early age. Inspired by the likes of Lauryn Hill, Erykah Badu and India Arie, she learned to play guitar and wound up on tour with Barrington Levy at the age of 19. After the tour ended she lived in Jamaica for a few months, building with Mr. Levy in the studio before returning to Hawaii and then on to Hong Kong. “As Hawaiians,” she says, “we have our roots and our routes. We know who we are, and we use that to navigate and explore.” Today Boomshots proudly premieres her video for a new song about the internal struggle within us all. “We want to do well but we all fall off the wagon at some point,” says the artist. “It’s about the realization that we’re not perfect and learning how to deal with that. The only person who can save you is you.” The desolate video was shot as far from the lush island of Hawaii as you can get—amidst the parched sands of California—and features a powerful performance by Archimedes aka Bert the owl, who obviously has a lot on his mind. “This video was something different than anything I’ve done before,” says Kimié (pronounced Kimi-yay). “Shot in the desert at the Bagdad cafe it was a collaborative effort with designer Oday Shakar and Joel Layogan… We’ve all been in trouble before. This song is just about embracing the regret and learning how to move past it.” Video After The Jump…

“You know I tried good, but bad comes easily” Run that…
