MAN BEHIND THE MUSIC
A Creative Presence
Kule T has always been musically gifted. From a young age, he grew up in a musical loving home where he was exposed to Jazz, Soul, Classical, Reggae and Gospel music. At the age of ten, he began playing the drums in his local church and moved on to playing the guitar and bass guitar. By his teenage years, he discovered the love for singing, songwriting and performing and soon became a part of an acapella group called ‘Spirit’ with members such as Conner Reeves, Chris Gayle, and Carl St Hill. After his time in ‘Spirit’, one of the members when on to be a successful artist and the other two, unfortunately, passed away. “God bless your souls by brothers”.
His singing career took off with the joining of a band called MN8 in the 1990s. The group had a hit single called ‘I’ve Got A Little Something For You’, which was released in January 1995 as the lead single for the album, ‘To The Next Level’. This single peaked at number 2 on the UK Singles Chart selling over 300,000 copies and a number 1 slot on the UK R&B charts, alongside top 10 chart single releases such as 'If You Only Let Me In' and 'Happy' in the UK, Australia, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden, Ireland, Denmark, Belgium, Switzerland, and France where they received a gold album award. He also was the supporting act for Janet Jacksons World Tour in Europe and has performed alongside Robbie Williams, Boyzone, Spice Girls, Madonna, Celine Dion, Brownstone, Backstreet Boys and many more.
After a successful career, Kule T and the rest of his band members decided to take a step back from the limelight. He became a family man with his beautiful daughter that kept him busy, but he continued to write songs and produce music in his spare time. Kule T is now ready for a new challenge as he embarks on a musical journey as a solo artist. His first single release, out now, call ‘Truly It’, exposes a part of his life where things were not going the way he would have liked. He said, “I try to show my emotions through my music which helps me to deal with things that are hard for me to understand ”, and this defiantly comes across in the lyrics of this song. Now he is getting ready for next release entitled 'I Just Know You Wanna' out at the end of January 2020.
