Since a kid I had an admiration for UK (United Kingdom) culture! Specifically the classic television shows and music because it was another outlet to experience the world!
Recently UK’s Rap and RnB music has been on a steady incline of goodness globally thanks many talents including Omar Lyefook, Skepta just to name a few… Another artist to add to the name of UK RnB listed talent is Kyle Lettman! I had the opportunity to interview the multi-talented singer/songwriter and I learned about Kyle’s music inspiration, recent work on Britain’s Got Talent and more…
What’s going on Kyle Lettman, Tell me more about yourself?
Hello Keta M., Nice to meet you. Well, I’m a South Londoner who sings, dance, acts… Pretty much anything to do with entertainment and creativity; I’m into!
Awesome! I listened to your music (Crush and One Dance Refix) and you combine an array of genres including UKG,RnB, dancehall, EDM and more… What (or whom) influenced your unique style of music?
To be honest, I’m currently on my own path when it comes to blending seemingly random genres together. I have a great team, who allow me to explore a variety of different sounds… Basically, we just go where the energy of the music takes us! However, I would say my core inspiration comes from artists such as Usher, Justin Timberlake, Michael and Janet Jackson, Fred Astaire & Prince.
Wow, your inspiration roster is nice! Regarding UKG, I have been a huge fan of the music genre since 2005 and it seems like the genre is finally getting the global recognition it deserves thanks to Skepta, Dizzie Rascal, and more artists… Have you worked with any UKG artists?
I completely agree, the UK Grime scene is rightfully starting to make waves on a global scale. I worked with Grime artist Scorcher on a track called ‘Moving too fast’ and I’m certain there will be more UKG collabs in the future, keep an eye out, lol.
Not only are you R&B musician but you are also songwriter whom worked with major RnB and Soul musicians including Frank Ocean, Neyo, Nicole Sherzinger and more… Is there a RnB/Soul artist you would like to write for that you have not work with yet?
Yeah, it’s has been an amazing experience working alongside those artists in the past. Moving forward though, I’d love to write and record with Emilé Sande. I think her music is amazing, and I genuinely think we both would come up with some incredible music together if we had the chance to collaborate.
What’s going on with you now musically? Any new music coming out?
Absolutely, I’m working on an album as we speak! I also have a few singles in the pipeline and a few collabs to keep the fans on their toes, haha. What’s More, I’m working with a dance crew called Nemesis who featured on ‘Britain’s Got Talent’. We are currently creating a stage show that I have always dreamed of; It’s crazy to think that it is becoming a reality now. I have to shout out Isha Nemesis and the rest of the crew for their amazing work!
