Taking inspiration from the "Time's Up" movement and her own obstacles she's faced as a female minority, KUDO wrote “Middle Fingers” to be an empowering anthem for women all around the world. "Middle Fingers" was created with the intentions to inspire strength and hope to all who have been victim to prejudice and inequality, but still allow listeners to vibe out and have fun while listening.
Just days after her debut release, "Middle Fingers" was added to several top Spotify playlists, such as and featured on "Discover Hits", "Social Top Hits" and "The Freshten: Hip Pop". As well as featured on several blogs and influential and heavily followed Instagram accounts, with one blogger titled the track, "the Female Empowerment Anthem you didn't know you needed."
KUDO was born and raised in Los Angeles, and was the pioneer in music for her family. Against her family's wishes, she DJ’ed house parties in high school for fun and began singing and entertaining her customers on slow days at work. Originally asked to be a back up singer for a local L.A. cover band, her bandmates soon realized that she had the natural ability to amp up a crowd and song write and urged her to work on her own artistry. As she developed as an artist, she continued DJ’ing as a duo with Swedish artist and producer Manne Björklund and soon starting getting booked for solo gigs all around the California nightclub circuit. From larger than life nightclubs to underground warehouse parties, she knows how to turn the energy up get her crowd jumping and dancing to her beat.
