- OrginMontreal, Canada
K-Bust is a Canadian Electro-pop singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. Born in Valparaiso, Chile, “K” moved to Montreal, Canada, in her youth where she eventually decided to follow her dream and pursue a career in music.
After her singing debut on the Montreal scene, she had the opportunity to appear at several festivals and music events in Toronto where she shared the stage with a variety of Pop Music artists which eventually lead her to open for popular Chilean rock band “Los Prisioneros”, while they were touring North America.
After some success a door opened for her to collaborate with the acclaimed Benoît Jutras the author/composer for “Cirque du Soleil”. She recorded one of his songs in studio for Franco Dragone, in Macau, and eventually shared the stage with her “Mentor” Alan Prater, a former musician and backup singer for Michael Jackson.
In late 2009 “K” started to work on her first studio album joining forces with noted Montreal Pop Producer Sonny Black which resulted in her debut album “Urban Stories”. K-Bust has been fortunate to connect with many talented collaborators and had the good fortune to meet up with Celebrated JUNO Nominated Producer Albert Chambers which resulted in her recording her second album entitled “Fearless” which has a release this year.
A pre-release single was pulled from the album early this year as a teaser garnering positive reaction debuting on the DTR Global Top 200 Airplay peaking at number 166, Global Top 150 Independent Airplay peaking at number 48 and Global Top 50 Pop Airplay peaking at number 43.
On a chance call with Canadian Manager Steve Thomson, when licensing the title “Love Is A Battlefield” made famous by Pat Benatar and controlled in part by Thomson’s Backstage Music Publishing, which lead to approval from Universal Music, Thomson had this to say “Love Is A Battlefield has been covered by countless artists but I have not heard a version this compelling since Pat Benatar’s original recording some 30 years ago and what a twist! We expect big things from K-Bust”.
