KinG-Drive is a Soul R’n’B artist based is Lyon (FRANCE), who creates his own music since 2005.
Having benefited from a short classical music education, his piano skills are at the heart of his process of creation. His inspiration is multicultural, having African origins, his use of choirs and rhythmic sonorities gives to his music rather warm colours.
Constantly in the process of creating music, because KinG-Drive deeply believes that music is all about sharing, he is always seeking to collaborate with other artists (hip hop, electro, etc) to extend is musical universe.
