Bridge: Please describe to our audience how you came about on the music scene?
KC: I really have always been ‘into’ music from clarinet lessons at the age of 5 until now. But, I started my original project and entertainment label in 2008. And, have never looked back. Best decision of my life.
Bridge: What are you doing to push a positive narrative as an artist and with your music?
KC: I am all about focusing on positive vibes. It’s very difficult for me to stay sad, unhappy or mad at anything or anyone. I hope people feel that in my music. I honestly believe my job is to make people smile or laugh, or just dance.
Bridge: Are there any rituals you have developed over the years that are helpful to your music making process?
KC: Waking up early with my kitten and watching the sunrise over the ocean. It brings me joy and makes me smile every morning. Even if there is a storm on the water, it brings me such content happiness. Nothing better than watching the oceans light up.
Bridge: Could you talk about an UP you had in your career?
KC: Oh, I have had so many, I feel very lucky and blessed. My most recent was selling my first animated feature film to Dove as a Dove Original Film. I have also had numerous performance opportunities that have been a dream. One, several years ago, was a 4 week tour in the Caribbean. Talk about a fun tour….
Bridge: Could you talk about a DOWN you had in your career?
KC: The start of my original project was a bit tough. I did not get the support I had hoped for and it cost me what I thought were good friends of mine. I had some unfortunate business relations with gold diggers and a lot of scammy promotional folks. Yes, there are all out there trying to promise things they have no business promising. So, watch out!
Bridge: How do you think your experience has helped you shape your career and approach your music?
KC: I have definitely gotten smarter from all of my experiences. I mean, let’s hope so. I try to avoid making the same mistakes twice….although, I have made the same mistakes twice….urgh. But, I keep trying to learn learn learn learn. So much to learn, so much to do.
Bridge: How did you develop your community of fans over the years?
KC: I hope I have a community of fans! I guess I am honest with them. I am not pretending to be someone other than myself. Plus, I try to write good music!
Bridge: Talk to us about your latest single. What was the drive behind releasing the single?
KC: On February 14th – yes, Valentines day, I am releasing a mash up of two cover songs…get ready, Journey and Van Morrison. I have turned their songs into one big dance love song. It’s called, Don’t Stop. I hope everyone loves it!
