For British R&B-Soul singer-songwriter, Kule T, music has been at the centre of his life as he releases new album ‘Emotional Rollercoaster
For British R&B-Soul singer-songwriter, Kule T, music has been at the centre of his life for as long as he can remember. Blending together a kaleidoscope of genres, such as R&B, pop, neo-soul and dance, Kule T has created his own hybrid sound. Drawing comparisons to D’Angelo and Luther Vandross, and taking inspiration from Bruno Mars and John Legend, Kule T’s storytelling comes from honest and personal experiences.
Raised on Jazz, Soul, Reggae, Gospel and Classical music, Kule T’s first musical experiences came through the church, where he cultivated his craft as a drummer, guitarist and bassist. The magic of songwriting piqued his interest as a teenager and he soon joined the a cappella group, Spirit. Sadly, the passing of two band members meant the remaining group went their separate ways. This mournful ending, however, paved the beginning of something new for Kule T.
In the 1990’s Kule T became the lead singer for MN8, an R&B pop group who saw success with their hit single ‘I’ve Got A Little Something For You,’ announcing the release of their debut album ‘To The Next Level.’ Signed to Sony/Columbia, the single reached number 2 in the UK Singles Charts, taking the number 1 spot on the UK R&B Charts. Further releases saw them reach worldwide success, receiving a Gold Album Award in France. Kule T’s stage presence was elevated through touring with the likes of Janet Jackson, Robbie Williams, Boyzone, Spice Girls, Madonna, Celine Dion and Backstreet Boys.
Following the success of his singing career, the band parted, and Kule T took time to focus on raising a family of his own, but music was never far away. While concentrating on his solo path, his highlights have included hosting and performing on Top of the Pops, featuring on BBC Radio 2’s ‘Sound Of The 90s’ with Fearne Cotton, BBC Radio London’s ‘The Scene’ with Jaqueline Shepherd, starring on the front page of Touch Magazine and a feature on Happiful Magazine.
