Meet Kapital Stone

Today we’d like to introduce you to Kapital Stone.

Every artist has a unique story. Can you briefly walk us through yours?
I grew up listening to a wide range of music, especially dancehall and RNB. Wrote my very first song at the age of 5. At first, I was shy, but then I developed a love for reciting popular songs for my classmates and conducting sing-alongs with them. This eventually turned into me performing my own songs for them around ages 8 through 12. Made the decision to officially do music between the ages 13 and 14 and been doing it ever since. With that came a lot of in and out of school, learning how to become a better writer, studying my favorite acts, and learning how to blend my favorite genres.

Please tell us about your art.
I’m more of a writer/composer. I love writing music from scratch and then creating the sounds around the lyrics with the help of talented collaborators. I do music ultimately for expression, , and more or less social commentary. I like the way the human mind works, so I try to figure out new ways of addressing mental situations through sounds and lyrics. Certain flow patterns and switches seem to really evoke emotions in different ways, so I focus more on a mixture of simple to complex rhyme schemes and melody. The overall message is to be human and not being afraid to feel and speak your truth. And my artwork is ultimately a combination of all my experiences and other people’s experiences. Some has described my songs to be more like a conversation.

Given everything that is going on in the world today, do you think the role of artists has changed? How do local, national, or international events and issues affect your art?
The role of artists will never change. Artistes are more or less a representative of collective consciousness, and also a reflection of different groups and mind states. The phrase “there’s a song for everyone” shows that even the most frivolous vanity driven artist is still singing to an audience that is reflected by that music. And all issues, from local to international, affect my art once it resonates with me. My interpretation of events will dictate the way I address it in my music. Sometimes I can be very straightforward while other times, it can be more covert but still potent enough to be felt.

How or where can people see your work? How can people support your work?
The main way to support me would be through streaming my music currently on all major platforms under Kapital Stone. Supporters can also subscribe to my YouTube channel and follow me on all social media platforms to keep up with my movements on this journey.
