I look forward to people from New York to London to Dubai to Brazil to India to South Africa feeling my new project.”  “ I especially look forward to being able to share my music “live” with people around the world as well as in Mobile.”

"So Addictive" was penned by a talented, up and coming singer/songwriter based out of Atlanta, LOK3Y, whose forte' is writing deeply soulful records with "tinges" of gospel, R&B and international "feels." “The entire making of “So Addictive” was a family affair,” K-Rob said.
