Kalpee teams with Mortimer on ‘Lessons’
Multifaceted musician Kalpee recently released the video for his single Lessons, featuring Jamaican singer Mortimer.
The video was shot in the hills in St Andrew, and is a visual representation of what Kalpee wants to convey to the world through his music, which is total positivity. He also wanted to showcase the abundance of talent from the Caribbean.
Lessons is the first single that the Trinbagonian Kalpee has released since his successful five-track 2020 EP, Feel Good Playlist Vol.1.
Kalpee says,"Every day is a lesson, this is a mindset for me! This song was part of an awakening into who I am now, finding the lessons in my worst days and moving on to bigger things in life. The energy behind this song is one that champions us to believe in our growth."
Mortimer joined Kalpee on the debut of 'The Island Stage 2021' of the South by Southwest Music Festival held earlier this year.
"I visited Jamaica to work and perform on 'The Island Stage 2021', and while searching for artistes to join the line-up, I met incredible artiste Mortimer. His performance resonated with me. I knew he had to be on Lessons and well, he smashed it. Working with someone so talented and having that other creative ear, helping with arrangements and mixes, made me really want to take it to the next level, and Mortimer did just that," said Kalpee.
Mortimer added, "The song is true and I'm a fan of things that are true. It didn't take long to come together. I had just witnessed a fire in the hills when I got the song, and everything fit right in with thought. I enjoyed working it and I'm honoured I could work with such beautiful talent! Nuff love to Kalpee every time."
