Reason Season or Lifetime
G-Rod Records rising star, Kai Alece, one of the newest vocalists in the dimensions of pop, soul, and jazz, has hit center stage with a voice that will sail across music genres. Her debut album, Reason, Season, or Lifetime, is nothing short of a perfect combination of soul, R&B, and jazz. The Jacksonville native started singing at the age of six. 'Music has always been a part of my life. Both my parents are musicians. My mom plays piano and dad plays guitar. We lived on the second floor of the club they owned. Live music was featured nightly. So, I even heard music in my dreams. As I got older, I listened closely to a lot of different artists and tried to imitate them. That was the beginning of what I now know to be my destiny.' The album is centered around encouraging you to find yourself and it uses a smooth jazzy groove and moving lyrics to accomplish this. Her remake of Marvin Gaye's, 'I Want You,' will undoubtedly play a major role in the success of this album. It's never to late to change the course of one's life. Therefore, never say never. Kai is a true example of dreams that will come true. 'I didn't really consider music as a profession until college. Although, I had an opportunity to leave college for a music career, I went on to finish the Pharmacy program at Florida A&M University and I am now a practicing registered pharmacist. Because my first chosen path demanded so much of my time, this project has been a long time coming. We all know nothing happens overnight. So, if it looks like I finished this project in a short time, take another look. This has been years in the making. I felt I had to complete this project to prove to myself that I could do it, and I did.' 'All of the songs on this album are originals, which I wrote or co-wrote, except for, of course, the Marvin Gaye track. These songs were a definite reflection of where my life was and is, even at this particular moment. I learned that life is a series of lessons and we create our experiences, moment by moment. My biggest challenge was understanding the concept of life and my sole purpose. I found that things and people exist in my life for a reason, season, or lifetime and my job is to identify their purpose and move forward.
