Camille Kaye performing the Marvin’s Room Remix “You Could Do Better”

At first glance you may well see a harmless, innocent young Artiste. Very soon you are forced to stop, look qand listen as this choreographer, dancer, songwriter, and singer disarms you with her immense and varied talent. Camille Kaye, the enviable quadruple threat, possesses a velvet vocal instrument enhanced by training she received at the Wolmer’s Dance Troupe and Xaymaca Dance Company in Kingston, Jamaica, as well as Florida International University where she was awarded a Bachelor of Arts in Dance with Honors.

Camille Kaye’s career in dance boasts a diversity and range beyond others her age performing all over the globe to audiences as diverse as her experience. Across the Atlantic to the East for an international dance conference (DaCi) in Holland and all over the West at countless events in Jamaica, as well as in her current base Miami, FL. She has worked with renowned choreographers Tanisha Scott and Kameica Reid, been featured in numerous music videos and danced for Brick and Lace, To-Isis, Onaje, Carlene Davis, Bling Dawg and Alaine.Camille’s enviable writing talent, with a sense of maturity and depth beyond her years becomes evident through her lyrical content complemented by her musical choices including working with several of Jamaica’s and Florida’s young and fast rising producers. As a singer/songwriter she has already performed at major concerts such as Atlanta Jerk fest and Miami-Broward Carnival.

Born Camille Tiffany-Kaye Fletcher in Kingston, JA. on October 15th 1989, she not only has the Jamaican colors: black, green, and gold running through her veins, but an undeniable host of talents also passed through her bloodline from her parents who were both amazing singers. Robert and Marcia Fletcher, who were no strangers to the difficulties of the music business, only wished their beloved daughter to have a love for music. However, they were oblivious to the level of talent she had been blessed with and paid no attention to her growing catalog of cassettes and CDs.

As a young girl Camille was always set center stage entertaining family and friends with her energy-infused movement. Little did they know there was a great singer being hidden deep beneath the confident dancer too shy to reveal her vocal talent. Nevertheless, behind closed doors Camille would sing along with her favorite artists such as Lauryn Hill and Mariah Carey, hoping, though having no idea how, to one day fill their shoes. She became well known in Kingston for her choreography and dancing, winning numerous competitions, dancing at different events, back-up dancing for various reggae artists on stage and in music videos, but still kept her singing to herself. One night Ms. Kaye found the courage to sing for a friend who immediately introduced her to Dancehall producer Supahype of 007 Music. With absolutely no experience in songwriting or the recording process she wrote and nervously recorded her first song, leaving the crowded studio in awe. From that point on she continued working with Supahype along with other local producers until leaving for Florida to attend Florida International University in 2007.

While attending FIU, Camille made contact with Dancehall producer Nynex of Calibur Entertainment. She recorded with Nynex what would later become one of her first releases, “Ring Di Alarm”. Even though college was her main priority Camille was determined to balance her love of music with her intense workload as she changed her major from Aviation to Journalism to Music and finally, to Dance. In addition to recording and being a full-time college student, she also began teaching dance, and arranging choreography for various groups when she met Duane “Midilord” Summers, a producer/engineer and former production manager and engineer for Dancehall/Reggae superstars Sean Paul and Shaggy. Midilord produced her other release “Not Like This” and is now closely working with Camille to further build her career.

Camille has her sights set on international stardom, inspired by the successes of acts like Sean Paul, Rihanna and Beyonce. She is eager for an opportunity to do collaborations with or to create choreography for the likes of Usher, Keri Hilson, Missy Elliot and Bruno Mars, Reggae superstars Damian and Stephen Marley and Reggae/Dancehall phenomena Tanya Stephens and Assassin, among others. Here is a multi-talented Artiste, who is bent on touring the world and being a role model for young women. Here is a young Artiste who is ready for the international scene and comes “fully loaded” and ready for the World.

REGGAE SUPERSTAR KY-MANI MARLEY TAKES COSTA RICA BY STORM

The 2012 installment of “Carnival Puntarenas,” the third of the three “major” festivals of the season in Puntarenas, Costa Rica, proved to be another spectacular affair for the more than 40,000 music lovers who converged for the beach side concert in the capital city to see Jamaican reggae star Ky-mani Marley set the day to music.


When the young Marley, son of reggae icon Bob Marley, hit the stage backed the band Konfrontation, excitement and pandemonium broke out in anticipation of the tasty musical treat that was to follow. Marley blazed the stage for well over 120 minutes, delivering a dynamic litany of songs, from his father’s repertoire as well as some from his own catalogue. The multi talented singer proved his relevance with favourites like ‘Iron Lion Zion,’ ‘Is This Love,’ ‘One Love,’ ‘Get up Stand Up,’ ‘No Woman No Cry,’ ‘I Shot the Sheriff’ and originals like ‘Who We Are,’ ‘Rasta Love,’ ‘Ska-Ba-Dar’ and ‘Dear Dad’ – a song that pulls at the heartstrings of anybody who has lost a loved one. 


Ky-mani’s humble yet high-energy style of delivery demonstrated that it was really about the music and exceeding fans’ expectations. He was inundated with requests for autographs and how he managed to sign them while performing is baffling. Pocketbooks and shirts were only a few of the articles patrons threw on stage for signatures.    


Two encore performances later, the band was all set for shutdown, Ky-mani however obliged fans with a third and final encore performance. When he segued into the reggae anthem “One Love” the sea of patrons, obviously beguiled, appeared to be in a musical trance. 


“The picturesque view of thousands singing all the songs word for word, knowing they neither spoke nor understood English demonstrates one thing, that the universal language spoken today is the language of love” Ms. Lexy Brooks of VIP Connected Entertainment said moments after Ky-mani left the stage.


Marley, who is working on a new album, from which a single will be released this summer, is also making time for his latest project “Love Over All Foundation” (L.O.A.F.) an organization he is spearheading to assist his Alma Mata, Falmouth All Age School, along with a number of schools in Jamaica


“I am trying to assist kids in Jamaica who, though obviously eager to learn, don’t have many of the basic tools such as lunch money, school supplies, computers and desks. I have donated some of these items but would love to put a program in place where the efforts are ongoing” he said.


Ky-mani personifies the name “Marley” by continuing to maintain the highest professional standards through music and the love of his fellow man, something Bob would undoubtedly be proud of. The Marley legacy clearly, continues through his children.
