K-Ci Hailey, best known as a member of the hit-making R&B groups Jodeci and K-Ci & JoJo, has signed with P Music Group for management as he relaunches his solo career. Slated to release new music in 2020, the Grammy Award-nominated artist is being represented by Mark Siegel of ICM Partners for tour bookings.
Headed by founder/CEO Michael Paran, P Music Group also manages Charlie Wilson (Gap Band) and Johnny Gill (New Edition). In a release announcing Hailey’s signing, Paran said, “I’ve been a personal fan of K-Ci for years. He is a talented singer, songwriter and producer with one of the most recognizable voices in R&B. His talent, backstory, trials and commitment to turning around his life will make for another great success story that we are proud to be a part of. Given our roster, K-Ci fits the exact mold of what has helped drive our success with what we do best at P Music Group.”
Hailey began his music career as a youngster singing with his father’s gospel group, Little Cedric (aka K-Ci) & the Hailey Singers. Switching to R&B, he and brother Joel “JoJo” Hailey teamed up with the DeGrate brothers—DeVanté and Dalvin—to form Jodeci in the early ‘90s. Signed to Uptown Records, the harmonious quartet recorded three platinum albums that spun off several R&B and pop hits, including “Come & Talk to Me,” “Forever My Lady,” “Cry for You,” “Freek‘n You” and “Lately.”
