K-Gi has been writing for over 30 years.

He resides in Canada.

He has been encouraged and urged by friends and fellow musicians to
share his creations. Hence, a debut album!
'If It Were Not So...I Would Have Told You!' speaks to all music lovers
of various genres. A Journey from sandy beaches to salmon-filled rivers;
from uplifting parties to candle-light dinners. Love Ballads, jazzy Latin guitar instrumentals, classical themes, R&B and Rap, African dance and drum music, Pop, Rock and Reggae.
A diversity of genres is also reflected in K-Gi's lyrics, which paint
a wide array of different pictures.
From excursions in 'Paradise' to bouncy fun-filled party scenes, from social critical
issues to father-daughter relationships.

At present K-Gi is working on his second album, which will include
several Reggae and crossover songs.

He has recently written a Cumbia instrumental for a documentary about
travelling a long forgotten pole-post road in Mexico.

K-Gi also works with a well known dancer in France and provides
the music for her African Dance show and dance classes.

He feels that a good marriage between words and music (prosody) can if
only briefly, uplift the human spirit and give it wings to fly.
Yet, as important as music is to him, he envisions it as ‘just a slice
of bread on the table of life’.
Though somewhat of an introvert, K-Gi’s altruistic nature immediately
surfaces when engaged in lively discussions.
He asserts that no one will truly be safe, well-off and at peace until we ALL are!
He believes that we are all connected to each other whether we know it
or not; like it or not. In particular, he mentions how quickly we forget
where we have come from once we become successful; forget what it is like to
be hungry once we are full; or what it means to be cold while we are
warm. However, once we are loved we never forget. It is therefore
incumbent upon us all to do all that we can to spread love, peace, joy
and compassion…and to contribute towards the reduction of tragedies and
sorrows globally.

It is K-Gi’s ambition that music will afford him the opportunity to make
a difference…no matter how small. Drop by drop is the bucket filled.
Though many are called, few are chosen.
“If it were not so he would have told you!”

K-Gi Kage
Why this name?
That's the name I am known by.
Do you play live?
In Canada, mostly on weekends. Of course I love it! Evert performance is special.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
Quicker access and a more level playing field... especially for unsigned acts and songwriters.
The industry has to adapt to the electronic/mp3 type format or perish. When an equitable and acceptible method is agreed on, the industry will be truly revolutionized.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
possibly... but realistically very doubtful. I am not particularly good at following orders that run contrary to my guts or that is not based on common sense!
Band History:
Cruise ship cover band since mid-90's.
All styles covered from Santana to Duke Ellinton; Jobim to Prince; Marley to Arrow; Jimmy Buffet to Stevie Wonder...
I have been there, done that and don't want to do the "musical prostitution" anymore. Hence the project of songwriting and recording, which results in my debut album: "If It Were Not So...I Would Have Told You!
