It was a blessing in disguise."   KT is currently touring and preparing the release of his new project Streets Chose 2       Stay Connected with KT: Twitter  |   ...

EARTH KRY BAND - 9 to 5 - Hard Road
The EarthKry band was born and nurtured within the halls of the Edna Manley College of The Visual & Performing Arts in Kingston, Jamaica where four budding musicians hoped to hone their skills.
