Singer/Songwriter Kumar will release his single “It’s Alright” December 7th. The track will be the first single from his forthcoming full-length album on VP Records. Produced by Robert Livingston and Llamar “Riff Raff” Brown and written by Kumar, the pop infused reggae track is a perfect introduction to the artist. To launch his new music, he is currently on his “Stand Firm: Europe Winter Acoustic Tour” through December 15th. (Dates below)
Kumar first captured the spotlight as the lead singer for acclaimed roots reggae band Raging Fyah. With distinctive haunting vocals, Kumar picked up a 2017 Grammy Nomination for his work on Raging Fyah’s ‘Everlasting’ as well as millions of streams across Spotify and YouTube. With extensive touring in Europe and the States, Kumar has shared the stage with artists such as UB40, Tribal Seeds, and The Green, to name a few.
In the studio Kumar has put out a steady stream of collaborations including recent duet alongside Alborosie (still with Raging Fyah), the re-imagined Metallica classic “The Unforgiven” in a reggae style, receiving millions of streams across Spotify and Youtube and mainstream radio support in the states. In late 2018 after lengthy deliberation and meditation, Kumar made the decision to leave Raging Fyah and pursue a career as a solo artist focused on pursuing his own artistic vision.
“We heard the track and immediately felt that it could connect with audiences who love reggae and beyond,” said Randy Chin, President at VP Records. “Kumar is a great talent with a hunger for success and we are happy to share this new journey with him.”
