Online PR News – 04-September-2013 – Nashville, Tn – Meet the newly revamped Jaya Kosa (Formally Known as Platnum Statuss)
A Melodic Lyricist/Songwriter born in South West London. Jaya Kosa spent his formative years living in various parts of London before moving to the Southern coast of Brighton.
No stranger to music, Jaya spent many summer holidays in "2 DEEP" Recording Studio with "Tony Ra", "Charles Rockwell" and his Uncle "Ricky Sprakett AKA Ricman" Jaya spent many days among senior DJ's and local Artists in Brixton where he was heavily influenced by all around him creatively.
He was first handed the microphone at the age of 9. Having heard his rendition "Tony Ra Recording Producer and Studio owner advised him to keep writing, stick to it and finish his education.
Aged 13 Jaya became a member of the group “Sickness Legion” as a Grime MC where he played a large part of the mix CD released "Name Behind The Reputation". Becoming more mature he decided to change direction, thus he decided to pursue music even further, and he wanted to know the ins and outs of his passion and studied a degree in Music Business and Music Technology as his core subject.
" It's all well and good being able to sing or rap but I wanted to go that bit further and hone in on the music business so I could have in-depth creative knowledge of how the industry worked , I'm always looking to come up with fresh new sounds" says Jaya..
By the age of 18 Jaya had musically matured sufficiently to change his delivery to a euphoric sound with influences from Reggae, R'n'B, Dance and Pop. The finished smoother sleek style provides a feel good sound evident in the Youtube release "By My Side" (2007) and "Dance In The Club" (2010) which both had great coastal support and helped to build his fan base greatly.
Having spent the last 6 years seriously writing, making numerous appearances locally in Worthing, Brighton, Essex, London night clubs and parties, he has been featured on BBC Introducing (BBC Essex) on 3 occasions, PlayVybz FM, Upfront Magazine, and a feature in JamsPhere Magazine, he was also interviewed by Ms Dynasty , read interview here: http://ms-dynasty.com/2013/01/13/featured-artist-platnum-status-platnumstatuss/ with live acts at the famous Kursaal Function Suites in Essex.
