It has been two years since the 19 year old vocalist and musician decided to pursue music professionally and he hasn’t turned back.
Since placing 4th in 2013 staging of local talent competition, Digicel Rising Stars, Kenny Smith has seen many doors open and has taken advantage of opportunities that have come his way.
His talent was discovered by then Judge of the competition, Craig ‘Craigy T’ Thompson and Kenny was immediately signed to Craigy’s GafJam Records Label.
“It’s just a great joy working with Gafjam Records. We take music serious but we enjoy ourselves same time. Craigy T is a really good mentor to me and I’ve been learning a lot from his own experiences” Kenny shared
Under the tutelage of Craigy T, Kenny Smith has been honing his talent and has produced quality singles. Singles including the recently premiered “RANGE ROVER” that has been gaining traction since its promotional preview release.
