Biography

Kevin ‘K.C.’ Cossom (born September 2, 1984) is an American singer, Grammy-nominated songwriter, producer and arranger. Born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and raised in Orlando, Florida, Cossom has written for a variety of artists including Keri HilsonKnock You Down featuring Kanye West and Ne-Yo and Mary J. Blige (Tonight). He is signed to Grammy Award-winning producer Danja’s label, N.A.R.S./Jive.

Presently, Cossom is in studio preparing for the release of his debut album. The lead single, Baby I Like It, features P. Diddy and Fabolous.

Cossom grew up in Orlando, Florida, an only child to a single mother - an educator and founder of a performing arts academy. She encouraged him to perform his first solo at the age of three. While his exposure to secular music was limited, Cossom was able to hone his skills singing in his gospel church choir. At six, he joined his first group, a gospel act assembled by his mother and at 14, formed a short-lived singing group with friends. Three years later, he began to build a reputation as a songwriter and singer with the help of his manager, Rashad Tyler.

In 2004, after a meeting with 50 Cent at his Connecticut mansion, Cossom was asked to write and record a hook for a song that G-Unit Records member Lloyd Banks was working on. This resulted in Karma – a hit single on Banks’ debut album, The Hunger For More. Though Cossom was replaced by Avant on the video and radio versions of the single, through this encounter, he received his first songwriting credit.
