Kesia Nagata is a singer-songwriter from Northern BC, Canada. She homesteads with a menagerie of eccentric humans and animals in the Kispiox Valley, and pulls her melodies and words from a deep fascination with the wild land and its inhabitants.

Looking For Horses is Nagata’s debut album and spans an intimate decade of solo songwriting. Concocted of stripped down acoustic arrangements and raw, honest lyricism, Looking For Horses teases apart what it means to be human and examines the connection between soul and earth.

Nagata weaves voice and guitar without pretension; with a sincere desire to exalt and expose, and to leave the listener with something more than they started with.
