Living Art College Audio Production alum Kaya Black is coming back to share his successes in the industry. You will find him in the Stars Theater on Thursday, May 29, at 10:30am.  Born in Jamaica and named after a song and album from the reggae legend Bob Marley, Living Arts College alumnus Kaya Black was surely destined to work in the broadcasting and the music industry. His father, being a well known entertainment photographer in Jamaica, was able to mingle backstage at an annual concert festival called Reggae Sunsplash.  The co-founder of the concert also worked as a radio personality and voiceover artist.  Kaya says that’s where his desire to work in the music industry and radio broadcasting started at from an early age.  Within a month of graduation from Living Arts College, Kaya secured a full-time management position at Perry Publishing and Broadcasting Company in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, as a production director where he oversees the audio production department for two of its urban radio stations, Power 103.5 FM KVSP and Heart & Soul 92.1 & 1140. Kaya is also a freelance audio engineer and handles marketing for music artists.  Since graduating Living Arts College in May 2013, Kaya has worked with artists such as:  the 90’s pop band Color Me Badd; Al B Sure; Grammy award recipient for the first reggae album of the year, the band Black Uhuru; Grammy award-winning rapper Juicy J; Janelle Monae; Sebastian Mikael; and Mike Bone, who has been featured on America’s Got Talent.  Follow Kaya at: and
