As Colt often states it was ‘being raised by the internet’, that introduced him to the inspirational sounds of artists as KiD Cudi and Tupac. Soon after his discovery Kelvyn turned his parent’s garage into his first and very own music studio.

After only three weeks he dropped out and decided to expand his musical horizon abroad. He bought a one-way ticket to London on Lufthansa flight LH914 and enrolled at a business university in the UK. It was when Colt go to London, that his career as a rapper really started to take off.

Fast-forward to where Colt stands now, being named ‘Artist to Watch’ by YouTube in 2019 and also becoming a ‘VEVO DSCVR’ act for the same year, the tone is set for Kelvyn Colt at just the start of 2019. Now boarding another Lufthansa flight to Austin, Texas for SXSW, Colt has a promising year ahead.
