After a three-year break, newcomer Kurt Legacy has relaunched his musical career with the release of two new songs, 'Xstasy' and 'All My Love'. Both were produced by New Hites Empire Inc.

"When I just came out, I knew I was not too early, but felt like there was something else I needed to do" the artiste said.

Born and raised in Kingston, Kurt now resides in the United States. He has been working on making a name for himself in musical circles.

Xstasy is a smooth, sultry ballad that's set to soar up the FM dial, while he gets into the reggae vibe on All My Love.

"My musical style is dancehall mixed with rhythm and blues and pop. The flow is original and organic, so there's no trying to create a sound or style. I don't like to go with the flow of what everyone else is doing. As an artiste I like to stay innovative," Kurt said.

But music is not new to Kurt Legacy, as he released his first song, All About Having Fun, at age 14. The song received some recognition regionally, especially in Cayman where it reached number two on the charts.

"Whenever I create a song and I send it out for review by impartial critics, they always come back telling me people need to hear these songs. There is nothing like this out there. I'm bringing another perspective to dancehall, another sound that dancehall has out of many that is somewhat familiar, but still unique. There is a smooth side to dancehall that many people have forgotten about," he said. .

The 32-year-old former Knox College student has done work with Grammy-winning producer Jason Gilbert, but he is now focused on simply releasing good music.

"The most important thing right now is not who I have worked with or what I have done, the only thing that matters is what I am about to do. I am about to create a statement, and that statement is, you can't stop what the people love. Sooner or later they will demand Kurt Legacy, or change the station," said the entertainer, whose upcoming EP is titled Face Everything and Rise.
