"Kite demonstrates the talent and dedication to write a 'Hit Song'."
- Jim Halsey, President, Billboard World Song Contest.

Kite ImageKite are from the small Caribbean island of Barbados and have been strutting their stuff since 2004, receiving wide radio airplay and developing a large, loyal following through their live performances.


Kite got together in Barbados in 2003 and after their honourable mention at the Billboard World Songwriting Contest in 2003, they released of their debut album, 'Up In The Air', in 2004 and got consistent regional radio airplay from then on. 'Up In The Air' saw them working with top Caribbean producer Jeremy Harding (Sean Paul producer/manager). The spot-on combination of big, radio-ready songs and use of steel pan and 'vintage' Reggae guitar in their 'iLandRock' sound made a big impression on the booming music scene in the Caribbean. They just didn't sound like anybody else. They just sounded right (or 'tight', as they say in the Caribbean').
