We had the good fortune of connecting with Kerry Kilpatrick and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Kerry, why did you pursue a creative career?
Art is the way I express myself! Being creative is freedom for me. Sharing my heart though music & fashion creates a space where others feel the need to be true to SELF. Music is healing and I’m glad GOD chose me to travel the road
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
My art is a true representation of me! When I’m making music, I’m extremely transparent and vulnerable. It shows who I am at my core which is scary at times. It’s scary because I’m allowing people into a space that is sacred and that’s not easy. I’ve worked extremely hard to get where I am now and I know there’s so much more to be done. This journey isn’t easy but it’s worth. Nothing is more important than my GOD given purpose and I will fulfill it! I’ve learned that it’s ok to say no, be true to SELF, and knowing that I AM ENOUGH! There’s no one else like me!
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
If my BFF was visiting ATL, I would definitely take him or her to all the tourist spots! I would also let them see what it’s like to do what I do for a living. Taking him or her to the studio, meeting, etc. Now we love to dress up and look GREAT so I would take him or her to the BAILEY WINE CELLAR. Great drinks, great vibe, and great people!
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I want to dedicate this to my baby brother Fredrick Lamont Green. He passed away in 2018 and I miss him so much. He’s was one of my biggest supporters and I know he would be proud to know that I’m pursuing my dreams. I also would like to thank my mom Carol Green! She’s a rockstar!!! I wouldn’t be who I am today if it wasn’t for her! Thank you Ametria, PA, Willy Will, Canade, Jared, Rahnesha, D’Juan, Channin, Kstarr, and so many others!
