K-Anthony’s early musical experiences were in the church he grew up in Falmouth, Jamaica. Not happy to just sing the old hymns, he spent time reworking them to make them sound more like the music he heard around him.
Influenced by the island music, you can hear his love of Reggae, R&B and the sounds of his teenage years of bands such as Boys ll Men. His strong musicality shows his classical training gained through his Bachelor of Arts degree in music. K-Anthony’s songs are well crafted with lyrics front and center with a decidedly optimistic tone, but the underlying theme of his music is his love for God and hope for the future in his return. K-Anthony has a strong desire to bring people who feel lost and don’t know where to turn using his music as the medium for his message .

1. Tell us about your background. How did you get started in the entertainment industry?
I’m a Jamaican by nationality. I grew up in a quiet, picturesque, seaside town with my parents and one younger brother. I have always loved music but had my mindset on a track career. But my love for music won out and I really got interested in pursuing a career at the end of high school. I decided to pursue a music degree which I completed in 2007.
2. How would you describe your sound?
I have an urban contemporary/Christian Contemporary sound flavored with a reggae island beat.
3. Do you remember the first time you went on stage to perform? Where was it and what did it feel like?
Yeah, the first time performing was a real learning experience. It was in Kingston, Jamaica. I was very nervous looking out in the sea of eyes, but after a few songs, I was able to keep my nerves in check.
