With the stage being his first love and second home, he is no stranger to the spotlight. Sharing a surname with the very famous business magnate, Russell Simmons, Kortnee is no stranger to the music business either. The nephew to the Def Jam co-founder has created quite a name for himself in a short period of time. Boasting a whopping 75K following on Twitter, he is already on his way to being known around the world. Kortnee has previously performed alongside Chris Brown, Betty Wright, Maurice Starr, Támar Davis, Baauer, Leikeli-47, and many other artists through various mediums. His latest release, ‘Euphoria: The Live EP,’ is considered “the soundtrack to happiness, heartbreak, and everything in between.”

Following his latest project, Kortnee is gearing up to release a new project at the start of 2018. Preparing for the release of his album, ‘The Airwaves EP,’ Kortnee released two singles that have garnered a collective 6.4M streams in a little over a month. Signing with Shami Ghazi’s EMPIRE Distribution (EMPIRE) has prompted him to push the project back. He has released instead, ‘Secrets,’ his lead single for 2018 which has amassed over 1 million streams in the week before its release. ‘The Airwaves EP’ which will be released later in 2018 is already affectionately described as “the product of a California sunset.”
