INTERVIEW with KHALIA
Khalia talks about her new video release “Wild Fire w/ Dre Island and her journey to become a singer songwriter.
Khalia is Jamaican born and London bred. She found her way back home through the love of music where she became the first signed act of K-Licious Music. She was signed by the owner and producer producer Tony “CD” Kelly.
In 2016 Khalia met Shaggy and sent him some of her music that she had recorded. After listening, he was impressed with her talent and told her he knew the perfect producer to bring her sound to the next level. Once Tony Kelly and Khalia met at his studio in Kingston Jamaica, they recorded a demo the same day and have been working together ever since.
With a growing fanbase in Latin America, Africa and Europe, Khalia is on track to be a global Reggae star. She has opened for Alborosie as he toured in Latin America.
Nurtured and encouraged by his grandmother, Dre’s natural talents developed early with piano lessons, the latter honed Dre’s craft and musical ear.
With the experience garnered as a producer, and an unwavering support from family and friends, Dre Island made the transition to a critically acclaimed recording artist. A true artist, Dre hasn’t limited his art nor confined himself, as he explores and lives in every genre of music in order to get his message out to everyone across the globe.
