UK dancehall act makes local impact

Kurtisi

UK-based dancehall act Kerrick Bartley, aka Kurtisi, is confident that he will soon become a household name in Jamaica.

"My lifelong dream is to become a dancehall star, and I know I'm going to achieve my goal very soon. I want to make it big in Jamaica because that's my homeland. I'm working very hard to make it a reality. I have a strong feeling that this year will be my breakout year in Jamaica," said Kurtisi.

The hard-working singjay has been working on his craft for over a decade now. So far he has enjoyed minor success with singles such as We Party and Dah Suppen Deh.

"I'm no newcomer to the game. I have a lot of experience in the business, so I'm ready for the big stage now. That is why I have been working so hard, flying to Jamaica to record and promote my music over the last few years."

Kurtisi is currently busy in the studios working on his debut album, which is slated to be released later this year. Before the album is released, Kurtisi plans to release a number of new singles as well as a six-track EP.

"Since the start of the year I've been doing a lot of work in the studios. I'm recording tracks for my album. The whole process has been very good so far. I have laid some very nice tracks already, everything is coming along beautifully. Before the album is released, I'm going to drop a couple singles, starting in April. I also plan to put out an EP titled Party Boss during the summer. The album will be released sometime around November or December.

"I was in Jamaica a couple times last year recording and doing promotions. I will be back sometime during the summer. I plan to come down and do some studio work and do the promotional rounds and lay the groundwork for the release of the album," he said. "I'm recording tracks for my album.
