In just a few years, Colombia-born, Virginia-raised singer/songwriter Kali Uchis went from living out of her car to collaborating with the likes of Gorillaz and Tyler, the Creator. Uchis has made a career backing other musicians, but this year she’s already dropped two singles (“Tyrant” and “Nuestro Planeta”) from her forthcoming debut LP. The suaveness of her raspy croon harkens back to old-school ’90s R&B, with a type of magic that’s sure to translate beautifully in her live performance. CERVANTE POPE
