Kesha was born on March 1, 1987 in Los Angeles, California. Her mother Pebe Serbert is a singer/songwriter herself and has co-written songs for Pitbull, Dolly Patron and Kesha. Kesha’s mother raised her and her brothers through a lot of financial struggles. Their financial situation changed when Pebe moved to Nashville for her song writing career. As a child, Kesha accompanied her mother to the recording studios where she began to develop her musical sensibility and also took song writing classes while was at school.
Kesha’s recording demos reached the doorstep of Dr. Luke and Max Martin, who convinced her to drop out of school. Later, Dr. Luke, for his label, Kemosabe Records signed Kesha after watching her demos. She moved to LA to work in the music scene and started recording backup for Britney Spears, wrote lyrics for The Veronicas and appeared in KT Perry’s “I kissed a girl”. Kesha has also snuck into the house of the legendary Prince to leave her a demo, by paying the gardener $5 for entering the premises.
