Critically-acclaimed performances on the Dread and Terrible U.S. West Coast Tour and the JamaicansMusic.com Earth Hour Concert in Kingston, Jamaica have seen a spike in radio play and social media traffic for reggae artiste Keznamdi, who has been popping up on the radars of promoters and music lovers worldwide.
The 23 year old reggae crooner has now been added to two prestigious music festivals in the US. Keznamdi has been chosen as one of only two reggae acts for this year’s staging of the UCLA JazzReggae Festival at the Los Angeles Tennis Center on April 25 , which is being headlined by rap superstar Wale. Keznamdi will also be appearing in Miami for The Best of the Best Concert, Memorial Day Weekend. Both festivals are known to feature top tier performers in reggae and urban music, pulling upwards of twenty five thousand people.
Currently in preparation mode for the upcoming performances, Keznamdi is looking forward to further showcasing his talents and electrifying stage presence.
“It’s an honor to be considered for these huge festivals and it motivates me to work even harder,” he says. “I’m just ready to perform and share great music with the world.”
Keznamdi, who has also been busy in the studio working on several music projects, is gearing up for his next release titled ’10 Pound’ which is being “exported” onApril 20 (4/20), the day when ganja-lovers worldwide celebrate the sacred plant’s consumption.
“We have a very exciting premiere already confirmed for 10 Pound’s release on 4/20,” adds manager Matthew Lawrence. “We won’t be able to announce it until a couple of days before, but its one of the biggest tastemaker blogs out there so its a great co-sign for them to premiere a song and video from Keznamdi.”
Keznamdi’s introduction to the music industry came after the release of his ‘Bridging the Gap’ EP in April 2013 which peaked at number four on the iTunes reggae charts and number ten on the Billboard Reggae Album Charts.
