Washington, D.C.-born singer #KevinRoss leaves Motown Records to launch his independent label Art Society Music Group (ASMG).
The singer was signed to Motown since 2014 releasing three EPs -- Dialogue in the Grey (2014), Long Song Away, (2016) and Drive (2017) and his debut album, The Awakening, in 2017.
"Ownership means a lot more to me at this stage in my life, I’m grateful for the experience but it was time to move on,” Ross said in a statement.
Ross is currently planning a March release of his sophomore album Audacity. "Creating Audacity has been an exciting process for me," Ross shared. "I really followed my instincts and let the music guide me the whole way. This album has a lot more grit to it. It introduces new sides of me while still reinforcing the essence of my art."
Audacity's lead single "Thing Called Loved" is scheduled to release on February 8.
