Kojo Biography
Kojosound, aka Kojo

Born in Trinidad, Kojosound, aka Kojo, started his singing career with childhood friends he grew up with in his hometown, St Anns. They formed boy band New Creation and went on to appear on Trinidadian TV talent show Party Time. The band became an overnight sensation with its a capella versions of Boys II Men classics like End Of The Road and So Hard To Say Goodbye.

Eventually the group started writing their own music, and Kojo penned their first single Roll It. The track caught the attention of Eddy Grant, and his onetime manager Mike Dolan, who signed the band to his fledgling label, Tattoo Records.

New Creation recorded their first album at Eddy Grant's Blue Wave Studios in Barbados and was prepared to release the record under Ice Records but a bitter battle took place between Eddy Grant and Mike Dolan, forcing the band to choose between the two parties. They re-signed to Mike Dolans Tattoo Records, recorded their album Spirits of Gold and became opening acts for Ant and Dec's UK tour, coinciding with the duos final album, The Cult of Ant and Dec.

The group went on to record their reggae-influenced version of The Beatlesí Hey Jude. The single reached number 4 in the European music video charts and broke into the UK Top 40, winning a best Caribbean R&B group award and scoring a place in Trinidad and Tobago's history as one of the countries best known pop groups to have toured and receive international recognition in music.

By 1999 the band was looking at new deals in New York, and had begun working on a new album. Tragically, a car accident took the life of one of its members, forcing the group to disband.

Kojo moved to London and focused on working his way up in the record industry, first as an A&R scout, working for Craig Davidís producer Mark Hill and his Stoosh Records imprint. He then reunited with Mike Dolan to form Absolute Records, and later became A&R director for independent label Peromi, signing and producing rising rap star MC Vapour. When Peromi folded he went to work for legendary reggae label Jetstar as a sales executive.

Purely by accident, Kojo was convinced to start singing again after an old demo recording of his landed in the hands of Dee Leng, Head of A&R at Jetstar. Leng encouraged Kojo to start writing again and introduced him to reggae producers to formulise his new sound - a brilliant mix of R&B, reggae and soca music. Kojoís collaboration with Livingstone Brown on his current single Queen Inna Di Ghetto has resulted in his best R&B/reggae track to date, and is the first single from his forthcoming album Fahrenheit.
