Kiesza (pronounced Kye-za) has been a tall ship sailor, navy code-breaker, and Miss Universe Canada contestant, but these days, music is the singer/songwriter's main passion. At 17, she joined the Canadian Navy, an experience that later inspired her to ship over 4,500 copies of her self-titled debut album to Canadian troops stationed in Afghanistan. A fervent sailor, much of the imagery in Kiesza's music is drawn from her time exploring the sea.
