Fresh Kydd whose real name is Kurtne Patterson was born on the 11th January, 1989 at the St Vincent and the Grenadines general hospital in Kingstown. He grew up in the fruitful village of Stubbs where he then attended the Stubbs Primary Government School, and later on proceeded to forward his secondary education at the Adelphi Secondary School. Fresh Kydd passion for music developed in church and school choirs of which he was an active member at a very young age. But his passion developed more as he was exposed to soca music from various social environments.
Soca artists such as Poorsha, Fireman Hopper and Skinny Fabulous are just some of the local artist that inspires him to become not just a regular Soca artist, but an incomparable Soca Artist locally, regionally and internationally in the near future. In 2006, Fresh Kydd took Adelphi Secondary to their first entrance into Junior Soca Monarch of which he represented his school well with a tremendous writing performance for the young artiste.
This exposure motivated him even more to become a soca artist and drive him to produced songs such as:
- More rum in 2010.
- More rum remix featuring D’lanlord in 2011.
- We nah leave in 2012. ( This song didn’t make Soca Monarch but Fresh Kydd won the East Saint George Soca Crown and the Lime Soca Monarch Competition.)
- Plenty woman and Drink & Turn over in 2013.
- Ride it, Can’t cool and Skittles in 2014. (His song ride it took him to his first Soca Monarch entrance and got him into the finals.)
Fresh Kydd works at the Canouan Resort and is described both at home and at work as a very devised, reliable, trustworthy and spontaneous person. He enjoys sports, writing, working, socializing, and having fun to keep him energized. His favorite quote is success is getting what you want and happiness is wanting what you get. For 2015, his goal is to reveal his creative side
