The music business itself has been a diligent teacher for Steven Knight, guiding him through many obstacles, while providing valuable lessons along the way. Throughout his journey into the industry, Knight continuously encountered broken promises and pipe dreams that never seemed to work out. Though discouraging, it lead Knight to do something he had never done before, take complete control of his career. Knight decided to fund and develop his own project, which would in turn showcase exactly who he was as an artist via his ideas, unique style, and signature sound. To assist with production and recording, Knight enlisted the help of local talented producers, writers and engineers. In June 2009, Knight released his promotional EP entitled Knight Life which featured the titled track Knight Life and R&B ballad Tryin. Both songs charted on various independent radio stations and Knight Life reached Number 2 on the Westside Will Countdown.
The summer 2010 began what would seem to be a positive turn in Steven’s music career. While performing at a local music festival, Knight attracted the interest of David Hilton, a private investor who expressed possibly funding Steven’s music career. Three months later, the two developed a partnership and began working on Knight’s debut album after recruiting the help of talented producer Feenix Eletrik. At that same time, Knight obtained a distribution deal through JMB Records/ Universal Music Group. The debut album is expected to be released worldwide in early 2011. The music is said to stay true to Knight’s roots and many musical influences that fans have come to love, but it will also reflect a new sense of urgency and struggle, no doubt a product of the many trials he encountered along the way. Knight was nominated for the 2010 ATL Club Award Future Superstar which would be his first award nomination. What the future holds for Steven Knight is yet to be determined, but one thing’s for sure, the best is yet to come.
