K3RR Debuts Love In Time

K3RR

K3RR is an emerging independent recording artist making his solo professional debut in 2024. The 22-year-old singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist was born and raised in the Bahamas. His sound is a smooth mix of pop hooks, jazz-infused R&B, and chilled island vibes.

The bedroom producer has carved a unique niche for his romantic and soulful style.  A self-described hopeless romantic, K3RR cites artists like Daniel Caesar, TylerTheCreator, Laufey, Kali Uchis, and Doja Cat as inspiration. After years of perfecting his sound, in May the talented young Bahamian dropped his debut album.

Love In Time is the brand new album from K3RR, released worldwide via all major streaming services on May 25, 2024.  The 15-song collection is a showcase for his impressive and diverse talents as both a composer and performer. From the melancholy R&B moods of songs like “I Want You” and the jazzy “Mine”, to the dream-pop and lo-fi grooves of tracks like “What’s in My Eyes” and “Rewind”, he spins a romantic genre-bending mix of hope, hip-hop, and heartbreak.  

Romance is the theme throughout Love In Time. And like any great love story, this one consists of equal parts euphoria and despair. K3RR pleads his case to his lover (“Can’t Let You Go”), himself (“Give up on Love”), and God (“My Prayer”). Throughout the album, he pairs his romantic soundscapes with ethereal vocal harmonies and soulful leads.

8 questions with K3RR

Where are you from?

I am from Nassau, The Bahamas.

How long have you been making music?

I’ve been making music as a hobby for about 7 years now.

Who are the musicians involved in your project?

Deisha is one of my closest friends. I’ve known her since high school and she is the biggest supporter of my music. She was always a great singer, so I asked her to feature on 2 of my songs. I am currently pushing her to make an EP/ album of her own.

Who are your biggest musical influences?

For the longest time, I’ve been a fan of Tyler the Creator, taking a special liking to his songs with Kali Uchis and his Grammy winning album, Igor. Igor, which was Tyler’s break-up album, played a massive role in the structure of Love In Time, even giving respect with the song “Be Friends?”, which is a nod to Tyler The Creator’s “Are We Still Friends?”, off of the same album.

While Tyler The Creator may have been the biggest influence in the structure of the album, the biggest influence in my overall sound would be a melting pot of multiple artists, such as: Daniel Caesar, Doja Cat, Laufey, Kali Uchis, and hints of Giveon.

What is your greatest non-musical influence?

My greatest non musical influence would have to be Deisha, one of my closest friends, and my terrible love life up to this point, with each breakup shifting my viewpoint on relationships more and more, ultimately affecting my music.

What inspired you to create this project?

My biggest influence in creating the album is my entire relationship with my ex-girlfriend from start to finish. A few other influences include: Igor (by Tyler The Creator), Freudian (by Daniel Caesar), and my close friend Deisha.

What are your plans for the future (musically)?

My plans for the future are to keep growing, keep getting better, and keep putting out more music. I wish to see myself go from some random heartbroken kid making music in his room on a $90 mic to a somewhat known heartbroken adult making music in a professional studio, lol. I want to do small live shows while playing the piano and I want to build a relationship with my fanbase no matter how small the amount may be. I want to grow into my vision for the heartbroken artist, K3RR, who does not only make heartbroken music.

Is there anything else you would like to say?

I appreciate everyone taking time out of their day to read a blog about this nobody, and I really appreciate all of those who decide to check out my music. I promise to get better, and I won’t let you guys down. Thank you all, and a special Thank you to The Static Dive!
