Artist biography

Klein's art transverses the visual art and musical world. Here is a description of her most notable recognition as a musician: Klein lives in South London, and comes from a Nigerian background. A fan of gospel music and theatre, she wrote poetry before moving to production as a hobby, receiving some early encouragement from musicians Mica Levi and Arca. After independently releasing the projects ONLY and Lagata in 2016, she garnered a cult audience and critical praise from sources such as The Wire and Boomkat. Klein released Tommy to the UK label Hyperdub in 2017, appearing on Laurel Halo’s album Dust and releasing her label debut EP Tommy later that year, receiving positive reviews from publications such as Tiny Mix Tapes and Pitchfork Media. In 2018 she directed and scored Care, a fantasy musical inspired by Disney princesses and the UK care system; it premiered at London's ICA in February 2018.
