King-I is one of today’s most promising emerging artists. His dynamic and versatile style as a updated cultural reggae artist reflects his early roots in Trinidad & Tobago as well as his influences of popular music that he listened to while growing up in an urban US neighborhood. Through his positive music he wisely and spiritually spreads his love for the people. Described as a powerful and soulful performer, King-I’s “powers” are seen in his engaging and highly energetic stage performance.
In 2009, King-I was selected to appear on The Ken Williams WVIP Reggae Rising Stars competition in NY and proceeded to win round two of the event before appearing on Rock w/Squeeze at SOBs in Manhattan for the Grand Finals. King-I has shared the stage with a variety of well known reggae artists including Yellowman, Lee Scratch Perry, Gregory Isaacs, Jimmy Cliff, The Wailers, Capleton, Pato Banton, Everton Blender, Chrisinti, Pressure, and more and has played to packed audiences at clubs such as the Middle East, House of Blues Cambridge, Hampton Beach Casino Ballroom, numerous colleges in the Northeast, as well as several festivals in 2010 including Providence Sound Session Genre Defying Music Festival, Exodus to Escoheag RI Reggae Festival and the S.O.S.
