KemDem’s story begins in East Kingston Jamaica, where he was born and raised. He also lived on the south side for some time, in an area called Foster Lane. Born Kemar Bennet, KemDem was an avid lover of music and football from a tender age. KemDem attended Calabar all age school in Kingston and enrolled in Kingston College after passing his common entrance exams. From there, KemDem would migrate to Miami Florida where he would continue his education; he was still a teenager at the time. While attending school in Miami, KemDem became heavily engaged in performing music and DJing. This would set the foundation for KemDem to become a musical artist.
KemDem gained notoriety for his singing gradually. One of his friends used to host parties at a small warehouse during school holidays and on weekends. It was at those parties that KemDem used to sample his vocals on different instrumentals, acquiring attention from school mates and other members of his neighborhood. KemDem also gained attention from other rising artists and at one point he became engaged in a musical battle with another local artist. However, a clash of egos nearly led the two artists into a physical altercation, so they decided to end the battle on that note. From there, KemDem decided that he had gone too far in the music business to turn back. He began seeking out different producers and would compose songs on a plethora of instrumentals. KemDem continued to work endlessly, releasing music videos while gaining popularity.
In 2021 KemDem released his first EP called Cost, featuring 7 songs. So far, the project has gotten a welcoming reception from KemDem’s fans and he continues to grow in notoriety.
KemDem is known for being a versatile artist with the ability to try different sounds and melodies. He continues to flourish in the music industry, getting booked for shows all over America including New York, New Jersey, Atlanta, and Miami to name a few.
