Music is a major part of most people’s lives. The sweet sounds can carry you through difficult situations, keeping you grounded and confident. If you’re looking for music to encourage your soul, check out Ki5 Loops.

Ki5 (which sounds similar to high-five) grew up in a musically inclined family. Being the fifth of a large, musical family, it’s no wonder he found himself in sound. From playing the violin to beat boxing, Ki5 has taken sound with him everywhere he goes. His work has been recognized outside of the Washtenaw County music circle as well. He has managed to serve three years as a co-music director for the State of Fifths, an a cappella group at Michigan State University. While there, they won ICCA awards for arranging, beatboxing, and choreography.
