“I Want You” is the ﬁrst single released on February 24th off Keishera‘s up coming self titled album soon to be released mid May, written by Keishera James and produced by German producer Zafer Kuruz from the Beethoven. Keishera gives us a raw synapsis of her truest self and the way she love, it expresses her desire to ﬁnd true love, the lyrics tells a tale of a woman’s desiring to be set free in here relationship, You can feel here emotions through her sultry velvety tone and lyrics as she longs for an enchanting exchange between her and her lover so real and honest that it breaks down all barriers/walls and set them free. She wishes so ﬁnd that special someone to grow old with.
With a voice that can only be described as a cross between Anita Baker and Sade, Singer/Songwriter Keishera James exudes originality. With her raspy alto pipes, born in Kingston, Jamaica and raised in Brooklyn, NY, Keishera has always been fond of reggae and soul music. She recalled attending stage shows as a child seeing her favorite artists rocking the stage and being mesmerized—wondering if she could ever be that brave. Her dream of being a Singer and Songwriter emerged much later, when she ran into inﬂuential icons Patti Labelle, Maya Angelou and Ahmet Ertegun. These icons encouraged her to focus on her dreams. After those serendipitous encounters, Keishera grew more conﬁdent and formed her own band performing at venues and festivals around New York City.
Her musical background stems from her cultural diversity from traveling and living in Germany, Paris and London where she discovered her true passion of singing and songwriting. Thereafter, she returned to Jamaica where she laid down the acoustic tune „So Good” on the Soul Food Riddim, “Feels Right” featuring Shaggy, on the Kylmaxx Riddim “Cry No More” on the Cry Baby Riddim and later resulted in the music video ‘Break free’, which became popular reaching the top ten charts on Music Media.
In late 2011 Keishera moved to Berlin, Germany to pursue music full time and venture into new territory, which proved to be successful. From 2012 – 2014 she began to gain world experience performing in various festivals across Germany, and Europe stretching into Morocco, including Reggae Jam 2012 and 2013 in Bersenbrück, Hip Hop Don’t Stop, Yaam’s – Radio live event and Bohannon soul club, 14 Room Art Basel in Switzerland, and Sun Festival 2014 in Marrakech, Morocco. Keishera is ready to slay the masses. Her stage presence and sultry vocals will leave you wanting more; She is deﬁnitely proving she is a star in the making.
