THE MUSIC INTERVIEW:
Who is Kerry Star?
Kerry-Ann Morgan otherwise known as Kerry Starr is a vibrant, outspoken talented singer songwriter, dancer, actress with a big personality and currently living in August Town, Jamaica
What got you into music?
My father, Neville Morgan who plays the guitar and write songs influenced my music career.
I did my first performance at the age of 6 at the Mico Practicing All Age school. Then I went to Vauxhall High school where I entered the JCDC Festivals. After school I attended the Ashe Caribbean and Ensemble, where I was trained in singing, acting and dancing. While there I started touring Europe and the Caribbean.
I then received a call one day to work with an awesome band from California called Groundation, where I toured America, Europe, Brazil, Australia, New Zealand and the Caribbean. I’m now on my solo journey and loving it
Who are you inspired by?
I’m inspired by all the great artist before me, but Buju Banton and Tanya Stephens are my most loved artists.
What’s an average day like for you?
An average day for me starts with astrology, then straight to my music business, which could include writing songs, doing photoshoots, talking to the members of my team. Making deals and ends with astrology.
How many songs have you recorded since the start of your career?
I have written and recorded over 16 songs, songs like Believe It produced by Sly and Robbie on the Tune in riddim, Me and You by Anthony B featuring me produced by Sajay Productions, Cupid, Core and Picket Fence produced by Legendz Production and Never Let You Go by Allpyramid, and more.
Why did you decide to collaborate with Anthony B for “Me and You”?
We have been friends for years and this is our second song together. The first one is called Haffi Know, which was produced by Chin. I saw him when he came back from tour late 2019 and he said Starr mi ago give you one more song, and the next day I went to the studio to record it. Now it’s playing all over and I’m grateful for that.
What feedback have you been receiving for that single?
Right now, it’s like every DJ is loving and running with it. I get a lot if DJs requesting it daily. It’s playing on the radio stations in Jamaica, England and other places in the world.
Can we expect any new collaborations in 2020?
I’m working on a Collab with some African artists.
I’m also working with various producers to put out my ‘Me and You’ EP. Fans can look out for songs like Me and You by Anthony B featuring me, Cupid, Picket Fence, Believe and more tracks. It is expected to drop in May of this year. It includes different feels of reggae and dancehall.
If you had one message to give to your fans what would it be?
What you think of yourself becomes your reality, both greatness and failure starts in the mind. So, think positive always.
What are some of the challenges you face as a recording artiste and how do you handle it?
The challenges are many, but I deal with them like they come. One at a time. Funding would be my biggest challenge.
What is the impact you want to leave on the people who listens to your music?
I want them to see that we are all born unique and special in our own way. We should learn more how to appreciate others and their differences.
What are you most proud of as a female in a male dominated industry?
I’m proud that I’m more than qualified for my career choice as an artist, and I have a lot of experience.
