R&B singer Kadhja Bonet’s music career started early. She began playing classical violin when she was just five years old. When she left her hometown of Richmond, California for the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, she began teaching herself how to sing and play guitar. That same ambition and comfort with music is fully evident on her debut album, The Visitor. Its first single, “Honeycomb,” is pure soul magic, and Bonet’s airy voice recalls legends like Minnie Riperton and Roberta Flack. It could slip in perfectly between Bobby Womack’s “Across 110th Street” and The Delfonics’ “Didn’t I Blow Your Mind This Time?” on the Jackie Brown soundtrack and not sound even slightly out of place.
Before a recent show opening for Xenia Rubinos in San Francisco, we chatted with Bonet about the necessity of solitary moments and social media blackouts.
