Kevin Walters, known to many as I-Purple, was born in Alexandria in the parish of St. Ann (the garden parish of reggae legends: Bob Marley, Burning Spear and Marcus Garvey), on the beautiful island of Jamaica. Though St. Ann was his birth place, Kevin and his parents did relocate to Kingston, which is where he grew up. Music was a natural choice for him as both his father and grandfather were known and respected musicians. He was taught how to play the guitar from his father but his passion became the piano, which he learned on his own.
As he got older and his desire to become a professional musician increased, Kevin made the decision to improve on his craft by attending the Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts. While at school his friends began calling him purple because he was always wearing the color. He later added the letter I to it and thus became I-Purple.
Fast forward to 2018 and I-Purple is now a full-fledged recording artist, producer and engineer that not only produces his own music but also that of others. As an artist he has graced several stages across the island; stages such as: Christopher’s, Jazz and Red Bones Blues Café, Essence Lounge, Triple Century and several others. Audiences are usually captivated by his performance as he has a great command of both the stage and the moment.
I-Purple is kicking off 2018 by re-releasing his track entitled “colder than ice cream.” A record that was previously shared in 2013 on the Jah Mix Production label. As I-Purple has now dissolve all ties with that label, he is re-releasing the record on his own Purple Keyz Muzik label.
