KIDDO is a Swedish singer/songwriter who made a name for herself with her singles “Drunk & I Miss You”, “Bang My Head” and “Coming Down”. Her gold and platinum certified single “All We Got” featuring Robin Schulz became a giant hit, reaching #1 in the German and European airplay charts. KIDDO has already been able to prove her all-round talent as a songwriter for artists such as John Newman, Gashi, Cheat Codes and Icona Pop, which ultimately led to her recent successful collaborations such as “Alright” together with Alle Farben and “Ordinary Life” with Imanbek and Wiz Khalifa.
She looks like a rock star, has a small heart tattoo under her eye, a unique big, raw, warm and quirky voice and is celebrated in her home country Sweden as an “Urban Rock Star in the making”. But KIDDO is so much more: singer, songwriter, musician, producer, composer, art director, director, graphic nerd or overall: an untamed total work of art that casts a spell over listeners, viewers, colleagues, fans and critics alike.
Her balance to date has been crowned with impressive success: among other things, KIDDO was chosen by a committee (incl. producer Max Martin) to be a part of Spotify’s “Equalizer Project” for upcoming female talents. She wrote her first songs in pop for Dagny and Icona Pop and made a name for herself as a songwriter. But anyone who has so much creative energy belongs on the big stage right into the spotlight.
A few years ago she introduced herself to the world as a solo artist and proofed instantly: KIDDO is a highly talented storyteller with one voice, so different, so wild, so big and irresistible. The debut releases have been followed by “My 100” and her recent single “Just A Girl”.
“I always wanted to write songs that everyone would like. But that doesn’t mean that I won’t fight my vision and get things done my way”.
KIDDO’s great talent for catchy pop anthems is undisputed, but her view on creating them is refreshing, personal and all you need to know is:
“I don’t define pop music as a genre. It’s the place where everything is melted together and combined with the right melody, my thoughts and feelings on a topic or a moment come to life.”
Whether it’s her own music she’s releasing, commissioned work as a songwriter or being the creative force who designs her cover artwork and videos – KIDDO cannot be narrowed down:
“Exchanging ideas can be very relaxing and empowering, a kind of Zen state. The illustrations and videos are another element of expressing myself.”
The massive workload could hardly be described more modestly. KIDDO is one of the hardest working solo artists in Sweden and has coolness au naturel that is more casual and down-to-earth, but is simply 100% rock star.
