      Hi Kivah, thanks for taking the time to chat!  Where are you right now and what you been up to this month?
      After travelling for the last couple of months non stop, taking the plane literally ten times in one month, I finally am settled back in London and this month I am completely focused on my single release and preparing new songs.
       
      Can you tell us a bit, in your opinion, about the scene where you are located? It is conducive to the artistic/creative lifestyle?
      I think London is one of the best places in the world to be especially for the music and artistic/creative lifestyle. London is so diverse  - you can be in Shoreditch or Camden Town, which are so alternative, and then take a cab to Mayfair and in half an hour you are in a posh private members clubs with quite a mainstream  scene. I just love the diversity of London!
       
      How does it compare to Mallorca?
      Well there are definitely more opportunities in a big city rather than on a small island. Lots of chances to make great contacts, attend events nonstop, network with industry and non- industry people and most importantly the major  artists will be surely playing in London whereas there is no chance to see your favourite artists playing in Mallorca.
       

      What inspired you to get into music?
      I always loved singing. I can’t even remember when  it started. Funny enough my dad reminded me a couple of years ago that when I was like 7 years old I already put my hand in a fist pretending that it was  a mike and was singing and dancing like crazy. I didn’t remember that I just though it all started when I formed my band when I was 15 but seems like it comes from much earlier.
       
      You got in early, being the lead singer and co-founder of “The New Flesh” in your teens, can you tell us a bit about how that came about?
      My first boyfriend was a musician, he played the bass in another band. Then the band disbanded and he suggested that I was the  lead singer, so we formed The New Flesh (we were a bit gothic back then) and that’s how I became singer-songwriter.
       
      We heard you have even recorded tracks for Café Del Mar.  Is this true, and if so, can you tell us more?
      Yes I have been doing some chill out music in the past. I have co-written a song called “Nobody” with the DJ/Producer Luis Junior and recorded “Now We Are Free” the original soundtrack of the movie Gladiator in chill out version. These tracks have been featured in albums like Space Café, Cinema Lounge, Dome Ibiza as well as Luis Juniors album “Neibum” both distributed by Café del Mar.
       
       
      Do you remember what it felt to sing for the first time in front of a crowd? How did you feel, and how well did it go?
      I was excited and nervous at the same time but with the experience and professionalism of my fellow musicians I felt sheltered and everything went great and I ended up having a lot of fun!
       
      You’ve just released a massive tune with MOTi.  How did that come about?
      MOTi  heard my song and loved it! He said he wanted to do the remix! We thought this was a collaboration we couldn’t turn down and let him add his magic to the track and the rest was history as they say!
       
      I’m sure working with MOTi is probably up there, but what would be your biggest achievement in your music career so far?
      My biggest achievement  at the moment is with “All You Sexy Ladies” I think it’s the best record so far as well as setting up my own record label. I am a businesswoman and have set up various businesses in the past so when the opportunity arrived I thought let’s go for it!
       
      What do you personally consider to be the perceptive moments of your artistic career?
      When I decided to be brave and moved firstly to Madrid to continue my musical career on my own as all the other band members were too comfortable in Mallorca but I was always quite ambitious and wanted to achieve more. A whole new experience started there for me in a big city and then later on I have repeated the same change by moving to London chasing the same dream.
       
      You’ve done a lot of modelling and acting in your time, starting from a very young age.  Can you tell us any particular memorable moments in your modelling and acting career that will stick with you for the rest of your life?
      I have many memorable moments especially when shooting commercials but I think one of the proudest  is an eight page reportage in a very popular magazine in Spain called MAN not only because it was a great achievement but also because I have shot this with a dear photographer friend of mine who has passed away suddenly couple of years ago in his hotel room in Mexico. He was such a great photographer and that photo shoot session will be in my heart and memory forever.
       
      What do you listen to in your downtime?
      My taste in music is very eclectic but the last couple of years I have been listening a lot to The Weeknd, his voice just draws me in.
       
      And lastly, what words of wisdom would you pass on to those who are just starting out in the music industry?
      Always believe in yourself, don’t be put off what some people in the industry  tell you, you’re too fat, you’re too thin, you’re too young, you’re too old, your voice is not good enough and so on. When you are passionate about what you do with work, determination and focus you can achieve anything in life!

      Alpha Booking Agency is Australia's first all female and LGBTQI+ inclusive booking agency, run by female agents with the mission to support, empower and navigate a positive and successful career for women in music.  
       
      Founded by Kailei Ginman in 2018, Alpha was the brainchild of a female music industry worker who had not only faced adversity as a woman in music herself, but also saw the struggles her female talent had faced over the years.  
       
      "Our goal is to see social change, not only for women in music, but for women in Australia and globally." – Kailei Ginman
       
      Alpha will work with a roster of female and identifying artists including Australian DJs: Ayebatonye, Feline, Rosie Kate, Sara T, Stacie Fields and Stara and will work closely with charities and other female focused businesses for women's rights and other marginalised communities.

      About Kailei Ginman ‘Alpha Booking Agency’ Founder & Director
      Kailei’s calling into the Australian music industry originated in 2007, unfolding inside the walls of an artist management company with a roster nurturing remarkable Australian talent including: Evermore, Lisa Mitchell and Operator Please.
       
      Armed with a plethora of skills, Kailei then went into a diverse range of roles within the music industry working as a booking agent and promoter with Platinum One Entertainment, a publicist and radio plugger with Shake Appeal, a merchandise-marketing manager with Araca Australia and most recently as a booking agent with Ministry of Sound, harnessing her talents in corporate event bookings and brand partnerships for her roster of over 80 electronic acts.
       
      Kailei’s artist relationships are home grown working with household name including: Havana Brown, The Potbelleez, Stafford Brothers, The Vines, Gang of Youths, Peking Duk and Australia’s leading electronic artists at Ministry of Sound Australia just to name a few.  Spanning across her time in the industry, Kailei has worked on international tours with R&B legends Salt N Pepa, Coolio, Sean Paul, Fatman Scoop and 112.
       
      In 2016, Kailei’s own personal mission, goals and experience as a female in the music industry, ignited the idea of the need for a female-focused agency because her musical roster was filled will an extraordinary tribe of female talent.  It was through this moment in time when Kailei conceptualized and launched ‘Alpha Booking Agency’ with the mission to nurture successful careers with longevity plus to understand and protect the needs of women in touring especially for the female talent Kailei represented.
      Kailei is extremely proud to launch Australia’s first all female and LGBTQ+ inclusive booking agency, representing females and fem-identifying artists, run by females, who employs females in all areas of the company including closely working with women’s and the LGBTQ+ community charities.
