Album Notes
KK Alese is heralded as one of the greatest and most celebrated singers in her native Cayman Islands. Alese made her mark on the Caribbean music scene in 2008 when her first widely released single, “Move”, enjoyed success throughout the region having made it to the top-5 of the Jamaica Music charts. The song’s accompanying video also reached number 1 on major Caribbean video channels and subsequently, Alese was nominated for an Excellence in Music and Entertainment (EME) award and won an RETV award for Best Caribbean Video. In addition, Alese was honored by the Cayman Islands Music and Entertainers Association for wider promotion of the Cayman Islands through her music.

The 2009 release of Unexpected her eagerly anticipated first studio album of original music showcases her range of vocal abilities on an eclectic fusion of musical rhythms inspired by reggae, jazz, R&B, hip-hop and electronica. Featuring Grammy-Award winner Beenie Man and tracks produced by multiple Grammy-Award winner Ken Lewis, the result is a sumptuous feast for the ears which captures the rawest of emotions, both high and low, and leaves the listener wanting for more. Much like Alese’s sensuous and husky voice deeply touches those who have been graced by her powerful live performances, Unexpected resonates with audiences both young and old while providing direct access to the heart and soul of one of Cayman’s most promising artists in the making.

Alese’s performance roots began in the church as a young child and her development into one of Cayman’s most respected singers was cultivated through her being a background vocalist for legendary Cayman bands Tabia and CMX-5. In 1999, Alese eventually graduated to being a featured vocalist in MoDanJazz, a contemporary jazz group, who produced a hit holiday album titled, “It’s Christmas” the same year. Later, in 2002, Alese became one of the founding members of and lead vocalist for AfterDark, a trio that rocketed in popularity across the Cayman Islands. AfterDark went on to open for several internationally acclaimed artists including Freddie Jackson, Keith Sweat, Floetry and Faith Evans, among others.

Alese made her solo debut at the 2005 Cayman Jazz Fest, and true to her appreciation and love of performing, Alese held her own performing self-penned songs alongside her internationally known counterparts by delivering a show-stopping performance. There has since been increased demand for her art in the Cayman Islands and the Caribbean as evidenced by her opening for critically acclaimed artists such as Brian McKnight, Natalie Cole, Roberta Flack, Maxi Priest, Anita Baker, Etana and Morgan Heritage.

Motivated by her personal motto, “get busy living or get busy dying”, Alese is determined to be a voice of truth, sincerity and passion while constantly pushing herself and her music to the next level. Rest assured there is much more of KK Alese to be explored.
