A Rising Rap Talent, Knowlij Has Made His Mark With Debut Single “Kites”



A talented up-and-coming songwriter and Indie Hip-Hop artist, Knowlij has made his mark with a tender and collaborative debut single. Released on Valentine’s Day and featuring his fiancée Holly, the single is a heartfelt introduction to one of this year’s most impressive and original virtuosos.

A father and fervent writer, Knowlij has developed a chill synergistic blend of Hip-Hop and Pop that is uniquely his own. Behind the music, he’s become known for his inspiring, heartfelt, and passionate lyrics, shining a light on universal struggles and deeply human moments to forge a connection with listeners from around the world. For his debut single, the poetic and poignant “Kites,” Knowlij has delivered a masterclass in softly blended acoustic tones, minimalist production, tender verse, and some gorgeous vocals by his fiancée Holly.

Released in February this year, the single has quickly become something of a phenomenon online, reaching over 16K streams on Spotify alone, while also drawing praise from music sites like Broken 8 Records, Stereo Stickman, Tunepical, and more, who have stated it is “one of the most evocative releases of the year so far, it’s a must for any fan of modern Pop and tender Hip-Hop” and “rhythmically alluring from the outset, “Kites” has the makings of a timeless mainstream single.”

Speaking about the single, Knowlij explained, “Kites is a metaphor for our relationship when the wind blows, and we struggle to weather storms in life. A kite is something that is grounded by someone holding onto it. If you do not hold onto a kite when the wind blows it will blow away.”
