After bursting onto the international scene repeatedly over and over again. Recently added to this collection with his chart-topping hits are “Kiss Me” “When You Look at Me” & Toast To The Dads" Single 4 One Night to name a few. KC Jockey is ready to take the music world by storm again with his latest single, “Girl You’re Free”. Having just signed a digital distribution deal with Empire Distribution, Jockey now has even more outlets to let the world hear his unique and infectious sound.
KC Jockey was born in Kingston, Jamaica but moved to Brooklyn, NY as a young child. The rising star quickly developed a passion for all things New York—both the good and the bad. The “bad” had him in the streets hustling to get all the luxuries he saw others around him enjoying. The “good” had him embracing his God-given musical abilities, which he finally realized could provide him with the same lavish lifestyle as the hustling he saw going on around him. After his mother passed from a tragic accident in 1997, Jockey dedicated himself to the studio, often working through the night to perfect his craft. The hard work paid off in 2000 when Jockey launched his own record label, Sweet Sadie’s Productions, appropriately named in honor of his mother.
“Girl You’re Free” is the story of a woman who has finally summoned the courage to break free from her abusive and oppressive relationship. The man she once loved had mentally and physically abused her to the point where she feared for her life every day. This song celebrates the strength and bravery she showed as she finally escaped her painful and terrifying situation. This powerful song will surely pull on the heart strings of many women and men who have suffered through abusive relationships. As KC Jockey will be having a campaign set for this single on SAYING NO TO DOMESTIC VIOLENCE An equally powerful and moving music video for “Girl You’re Free” is in production now and will be released by early Fall 2011.
Jockey’s infectious smile has landed him jobs as the face of many of the hottest new products on the market. He is currently one of the faces for the fresh new clothing line 4.U.2.N.V, who have featured him on their New York City billboards. Jockey also recently received national attention on MTV’s “Idol Party Live” during an interview with American Idol season ten finalist Paul McDonald. When Idol fans discovered that McDonald had made a cameo in Jockey’s music video for “Rub Your Body”, the story and video went viral and became topic for discussion in many of his subsequent interviews.
KC Jockey already has the musical chops and resume to prove his international star power, having shared stages with the likes of 50 Cent, Jadakiss, Jay Z, Mary J Blige, Beanie Man, and many others. His consistent success on both the North American and European charts shows that his style and sound transcend borders and cultures; “Girl You’re Free” is certain to be no different!
