Kite got together in Barbados in 2003 and after their honorable
mention at the Billboard World Songwriting Contest they
released of their debut album, 'Up In The Air', and got consistent
regional radio airplay from then on. 'Up In The Air' saw them
working with top Caribbean producer Jeremy Harding (Sean Paul
producer/manager). The spot-on combination of big, radio-ready
songs and use of steel drum and 'vintage' Reggae guitar in their
'iLandRock' sound made a big impression on the booming music
scene in the Caribbean. They just didn't sound like anybody else.
They just sounded right (or 'tight', as they say in the
Caribbean').
Kite performed at the Florida Music Festival where they were
the only band from outside North America.
