“Kari Faux’s profile has been steadily rising since she posted her debut EP to Soundcloud three years ago” Vogue

“In L.A., Kari ingested the spirit of L.A.’s G-Funk sound, combining it with sunny, jazzy, vocals and embellishments, channeling this recipe into her her debut album Lost En Los Angeles. The album, which was produced and recorded in Kari’s bedroom—and put out by Kari on Soundcloud and other streaming services by Kari herself, independently—became a kind of under the radar hit, attracting attention from critics and musicians alike for it’s wide eyed, optimistic yet realistic view of the joys and stress of living, working, and dreaming in Los Angeles as a young person.”Forbes

“Low key and restrained, Lost En Los Angeles depicts Kari Faux’s life in the city as a bummer fantasia, a quietly surreal trip through sounds dripped in jazz, 70s funk, and psychedelia, a sound courtesy of go-to collaborator Black Party.”Noisey

Kari Faux is a multi-disciplinary artist based in Los Angeles by way of Little Rock, Arkansas. Although her experimentation with a musical career started back in 2012, Faux has undergone a metamorphosis, shaking the scene with her 2014 mixtape Laugh Now, Die Later – a mixtape that would catapult her musical career, catching the attention of Donald Glover who remixed her hit “No Small Talk.” Her unique style of rhyming, unchainable confidence, and dashes of sultry vocal harmonizing make her a force to look out for. Her presence in the music industry marks a resurgence of fearless, outspoken female voices in Hip Hop; an attitude Faux exudes in all mediums of creative work. Her first studio album, Lost En Los Angeles (2016) and her most recent EP Primary (2017) are testaments to her continual evolution as a recording artist and while she explores the limitations of her creative abilities, music is not her only skill set. Over the last few years, Faux has added modeling, DJing, and producing under her creative belt. Kari’s established herself an asset and profitable partner, DJing for numerable companies including Puma, Hennessy For Complexcon and Depop, and producing a track on The Internet’s Hive Mind album. Not only has Kari’s music been featured in all three seasons of HBO’s hit series Insecure, but she also landed a noteworthy gig modeling for Pyer Moss, winner of the 2018 CFDA Vogue Fashion Fund, in his FW ’18 NYFW Show. With her intentions set of releasing three projects in the coming year, Faux looking to dominate the music festival circuit and recently supported Mick Jenkins on his Pieces of a Man Tour and earlier, toured in support of The Internet’s Syd.
