Kingsley Salmon has been producing Reggae music since 2006. Taking his early influences of Blues, World and Jazz, fusing it with his love for Reggae, Kingsley blends musical traditions and shocks listeners with a powerhouse of rhythms. Renowned for his emotionally charged lyrics, he addresses topics such as conflict, poverty, anxiety and politics. In 2009 he was scouted by BBC to attend the Musician's Masterclass at Abbey Road Studios and was claimed to be one of the most promising young song-writers.
If you haven't heard Kingsley before, you'll be shocked to hear his unique voice that has a clear influence from artists like Gregory Isaacs, The Viceroys and Dennis Brown. His voice was described by Slap Magazine as 'An instantly addictive Roots Reggae drawl'.
2018 was a year of emergence as Kingsley established himself as an artist and producer in his own right, releasing his debut solo record 'Down The River, which took inspiration from Arab music. He hit the road on a UK and Spanish summer tour with other artists, including venues such as The Jazz Cafe (London), Boomtown Festival (UK), La Mar De Musicas & Rototom Sunsplash (Spain) and headlining 'World In A Day' music Festival in the English midlands.
2019 hold much promise with new music being released in Europe and Africa as well as heading out on another summer tour with his new band 'The Occupation'.
