Kieron Boothe releases new single ‘Out of Sight’
Today – 17th August – Newham rapper Kieron Boothe releases his new single, ‘Out Of Sight’, his first solo release of the year dropping via Cologne-based label, Melting Pot. Produced by Srigala, ‘Out Of Sight’ subtly refers to the hard work he’s doing both personally and professionally behind the scenes, building his legacy on his terms. Away from the rest of the herd, Kieron is thriving in his own lane as he makes his distinct stamp on the UK Rap scene. Kieron showcases his range with the uptempo single, bridging the gap between Alternative Rap, Boom Bap and Jazz, ‘Out of Sight’ combines smooth samples with reeling lyricism and further demonstrates his ability to write personally yet playfully. Speaking on the single Kieron Said:
“This was the first song I made for the project back in 2019 and the first time me and Srigala met. We made the song in about 3 hours which is super quick for me, I guess the synergy between us was there. The song is about winning in silence, staying true to yourself and reminding myself to keep pushing.“
Growing up immersed in the capital’s rich musical history and culture, both at home and with friends, all Kieron knew was music and art. With family ties to legendary Jamaican reggae artist Ken Boothe, his fascination with music started early and he began writing lyrics at 11 years old. At 17 he won a competition via a major label which reassured him of his potential and kept him on the route to where he is today. Not one to shy away from collaborations Kieron has worked with the likes of; KeepVibesNear, ebdl, Nikhil Beats and Morgan Lorelle who all compliment his experimental style. What many might not know is that Kieron’s creative flair doesn’t stop at music, he’s also an applauded illustrator with co-signs from the likes of Idris Elba, KSI and Giggs to name a few. Graduating in Graphic Design from the University of the Arts London has given Kieron the advantage of being able to produce branding and marketing material for his own releases as well as other artists including Jords, Shae Universe and V9, Kieron’s days are split between music and drawing with his best work being creating when he lets things flow freely.
Kieron emerged on the scene in 2012 and quickly made a name of himself with his honest and relatable lyrics, he has remained true to himself and continued to learn and grow as an artist. The Silhouettes Project was a turning point for Kieron, his single ‘No Peace’ has over 3 million streams and led to him performing at the iconic London music venue, Jazz Cafe. With plans to sell out his own headline show at the same spot, Kieron continues to tick things off (and add) things to his bucket list. His growing fanbases are loyal and ever-evolving, and Kieron’s now sitting on a body of work he’s ready to reveal to the world.
