KOFFEE

Born in Spanish Town, just outside of Kingston, Jamaica, Koffee is one of the most exciting, forward thinking, globally focused teenage talents to emerge in 2018. She began her musical life as a child in the church choir, and learnt melody and harmony at the age of 12. She taught herself guitar after a friend lent her his spare one. She began writing lyrics in her bedroom after being inspired by the reggae singer Protoje. However, she got her name 'KOFFEE" after ordering a coffee on a boiling hot day while everyone else opted for soda. “They had a show in the cafeteria one day and people were going up to perform poems and songs. My friends encouraged me to go up and perform so I did and the place loved it. I had no idea it was an audition until my name got called over the intercom.”
