Pop/R&B artist KC Jockey seems to be on quite a streak of success in many areas of the entertainment industry including modeling, film, and music, or perhaps it’s just good karma. Either way, the Jamaica-born singer/songwriter’s single, “Toast To The Dads,” has been chosen by Disney for inclusion on its new iPhone app, Tap Tap Revenge: Tour. The app is the most recent in the game’s series, and was released on Wednesday, July 18, 2012. The original version, Tap Tap Revolution was released in September 2007. The series has continued to be one of the most popular games available to iPhone users.
KC Jockey’s other recent accomplishments include his song, “A Better Jamaica,” being considered as the theme song for Jamaica’s Post-Independent 50th Anniversary Celebration. Delivering another solid record reflecting a topic near and dear to his heart – domestic violence – KC Jockey’s single “Girl You’re Free” ranked in the top 40 of Top 40 Charts.com’s R&B charts on May 22, 2012. The song also took the top spot on WXAC 91.3′s Urban – Reggae Charts for the week ending September 25, 2011 and has been quite popular with domestic violence advocacy groups.
Commenting on “Toast To The Dads,” Paul Anderson of The Entertainment Bank said, “Much respect goes out to KC Jockey for his very hip and happening tribute to all of the great fathers and dads of the world. There are many men who are providing for and nurturing their children, yet all we seem to hear about are those who aren’t so great. With “Toast To The Dads,” KC Jockey sings a passionate tribute to his own father and all others who are striving to do the right thing. It’s a strong single with positive, heartfelt lyrics that will touch any real dad’s heart, and make those who are failing for whatever reason rethink their positions and remember the honor that comes with this responsibility. This is such a great message, and like all of KC Jockey’s songs, it’s set to an up tempo pop/R&B beat infused with reggae that is great for dancing or just listening to. The music is excellent, and as always, I’m impressed by KC Jockey’s commitment to all things positive. He doesn’t just talk the talk; he walks the walk as well.”
KC Jockey attributes the success of his music to his unique style of combining pop, R&B, and reggae with a topic that will have meaning and relevance for a lifetime. “The music I make is timeless and significant. It’s deep, and when you have a good sound and a good message, people are drawn to it.” KC Jockey also heads his own record label, Sweet Sadie’s Records.
