Amor Kismet recently won #FlashUnsigned, a Twitter competition hosted by Bill Werde (Billboard, Rolling Stone) to spotlight unsigned acts. He commented, “Three gorgeous sisters sing like angels with ton of personality. Unsigned? Not for long…Thank me from the stage when you win your first Grammy.” Since then, the industry has taken notice. BET named Amor Kismet as one of the most promising new acts in music and selected them to perform at this year’s BET Experience. Shortly after, the girls made their NYC debut at the legendary SOB’s. Amor Kismet is ready to give people a taste of their unique sound, which combines pop, R&B, neosoul, dance, and world music influences. The Love EP marks their first release and all four songs were co-written by the girls and Michael Dean, and produced by Bill Zimmerman.
