My music informs,educates and inspires. It's spiritual and deeply rooted in the Jamaican culture, it's controversal in it's protest, it spreads love and at times brings humour. All in all it's life through my perspective.
Straight from the Roots of Jamaican Cultural Music....."Katt-I" Emerges.
Powerful,charismatic,smooth,none like "KATT- I". Born in Kingston,Jamaica Katt-I,formerly Katt/Delroy Katt, began singing at a tender age, entering competitions in and around his community and singing on sound systems in dancehalls. He worked with top Jamaican producers, such as Philip"Fattis"Burrell(Xterminator Label),Style Scott(Roots Radix Band),Danny Brownie(Main Street Label) just to name a few.
Katt-I's crooning skills has led him to perform at various places.In the 90's he sang 5 to 6 nights a week in some of Jamaicas' top 5 star hotels. He wooed crowds from all over the world. Some visitors would return just to see him. He has performed on "BOB MARLEY BIRTHDAY BASH" in Trench Town, Kingston and "REBEL SALUTE" in Mandeville, both shows are annual events in Jamaica and features most of the islands top reggae artistes. Katt -I has played at the prestigious "JAMAICA FEDERATION of MUSICIANS AWARD".
