NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) – Check out K’Coneil perform on Stage 8.
Music bridges people around the world. No matter one’s place of birth, economic class or skin color, it all evokes a human feeling and K’Coneil’s is no different. Born on the beautiful island of Jamaica, K’Coneil was raised in the village of Granville in Montego Bay. It was there amid family and friends that at an early age he was indoctrinated in music by singing in the church at the urging of his beloved grandmother.
Coming from a musical family, music was embedded in his DNA, but not to be stereotyped, education played a major importance in the young artist life. At the age of 16 he migrated to the United States on a full soccer scholarship where he attained his Bachelor’s Degree in Finance. But there was no denying his musical calling, and while in college, K’Coneil joined up with a group which went on to win a singing contest at the prestigious Madison Square Garden.
After the group was dissolved, K’Coneil continued to hone his musical craft by writing and voicing for notable producers. His early singles, “GYAL A YOU” and “ME ONE,” have received heavy rotation on various worldwide airwaves, while has allowed him to grace stages alongside some of the biggest names in music.
A vocalist influenced by his reggae roots and the musical melting pot of his urban surroundings in New York City, K’Coneil sounds admittedly, doesn’t classify by the industry standards. Rather than to be boxed, K’Coneil created his own lane of sonic perfection, which can only be classified as being “genre fluid,” by comfortably fusing rhythms, genres and sounds from Reggae, Dancehall, R&B and Pop.
On June 24th, 2016 K’Coneil released his debut “Love/Lust” EP which peaked at #10 on the reggae iTunes album charts, and charting on billboard. Among the hit filled EP, the lead single “Hot Like You” and follow up “Feel So Right” have been blazing the airwaves of major stations worldwide.
