She sits on the Board of Governors for the Recording Academy (Pacific Northwest Chapter) and the Hawaii Academy of Recording Arts. She is also a Recording Academy district advocate for music creators rightʻs.

Kimié’s parents, who are of Hawaiian and Portuguese descent, noticed her affinity for music at a very young age, and at 14-years-old she taught herself to play guitar and began writing her own original songs. While attending Kamehameha Schools as a boarding student on Oʻahu, she honed in on her songwriting. She found inspiration in a wide range of music from Hawaiian, Jazz and R&B-influenced individuals such as Israel Kamakawiwo'ole, India.Arie, Lauryn Hill, and Eva Cassidy. While an undergraduate at the University of San Diego, Kimié embarked on her first west coast American tour at age 19 with reggae star Barrington Levy. Following the tour Miner resided in Clarendon, Jamaica for a few months to write and work with Levy in the studio.

Kimié champions the idea that one should remain true to who they are and to approach their experiences with the pride of their heritage. Her songs regularly evoke the Hawaiian concept of the Piko: the “naval” or “center” which represents a home base to which one can always return. She notes that “As Hawaiians, we have our roots and our routes. We know who we are, and we take that knowledge with us when we navigate and explore the rest of the world.” 

Kimié continues to be a hardworking businesswoman and mother of two young children while running Haku Collective, established in 2016. The mission of Haku Collective is to support Hawai’i-based artists in their musical endeavors through production, publishing and mentorship opportunities. Established by artists for artists, Haku is united by their shared love of music and their community, with hopes to guide a new generation of aspiring talent through their mentorship efforts as well as create a collaborative environment for established creatives to thrive.
