Up-and-coming artiste, Kimeco set to make debut appearance at STING
KINGSTON, Jamaica — Under the guidance of Sizzla’s longtime producer, Breadback, up-and-coming artiste Kimeco says she has flourished.
From being relatively unknown to growing a fanbase she believes can take her to the next level, the singer/songwriter is ready to claim her spot in Jamaica’s music industry.
“Since the release of my debut album, Unknown Queen, I’ve been going places and I can’t complain,” she told Observer Online. “I’ve been making the rounds at different live shows across Jamaica just slowly building my fanbase. My album was well received by the public and that showed at some of the events I performed at. The reception has been amazing. Giving people that can relate to songs like Profile, Jealousy, Live & 90’s Swing a chance to hear it live has been a blessing.”
With that said, the entertainer said while she is yet to reach a level where she could be considered a ‘household name’, her popularity is growing.
“I wouldn’t say that I’m still unknown because a lot of shows are enquiring about me. I’ll soon be heading to Canada, America & Europe, and my team is currently negotiating with Rebel Salute and a few other promoters to get me on stages where I can be seen and heard on a larger scale,” she revealed.
Speaking of which, Kimeco is expected to make an appearance at STING on December 26. She says she believes the platform will be a catalyst for greater things to come.
“This will be my first time on the show and I’m looking forward to making the best of this opportunity,” she said.
Highlighting how challenging it has been trying to make her mark on the local music scene, Kimeco told Observer Online that working with Breadback has been a blessing. For her, his guidance and support has made a huge difference.
“Working with Breadback is like working with a big brother. Ever since I met him, he has always been looking out for my best interest. Having his support and guidance really means a lot. His time and effort is appreciated,” she said.
