Born in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada on June 10th to a Jamaican mother and Canadian father. From a very young age she fell in love with music. Especially with the sounds of her mother’s homeland of Jamaica which she frequently visited as a child. Once she completed high school, the singer decided to pursue music full time. It was a quick shot out the gate when she gained a recording contract with Capitol Music Group/EMI Music Canada in 2006, releasing her debut album Passion two years later. The album spawned the singles “Bounce With Me,” “Lady Killer” and “Don’t Call Me Baby” which went on to become the #1 most played song (by a Canadian) on Canadian radio. In that same year, Kreesha was nominated for two Juno Awards “Best New Artist” and “Best Pop Album of The Year.”
Despite her career success Kreesha felt pressure to fit into a Pop category devoid of the culture that is at the heart of her music. In 2011 she released her sophomore project, Tropic Electric. This release saw her taking back some control of her sound and infusing more of herself into the music. The album garnered Kreesha another Juno Award Nomination for “Best R&B Album.” After her sophomore release she decided to fully take control of her music and destiny when she headed to L.A. to begin work on her third project. It was a chance meeting with Nick Cannon that would change things in her career even further. Kreesha attended a club event Nick was DJing and Nick acknowledged the artist during his set, much to her surprise. That encounter led to a meeting which led to a management contract.
Since aligning with Ncredible, Kreesha has released her first single “MJ” which is a reggae infused salute to the legendary King Of Pop. The accompanying video features the singer channeling her muse through movement and wardrobe. The follow up single “Sexy Gal” feat. T.O.K. has already begun making waves on Jamaican radio.Official Site
