Writer, producer, Jazz-fusion musician and performing artiste Kerri-Anne ‘Kei Dubb’ Walker is a self-professed “left-brained” creative. The Jamaican native is the brainchild and face of Kei Dubb – an internationally recognised arts and culture business management and policy, and music entertainment services provider. Resting firmly in the belief that while talent gets you in the door, it is skill and know-how that will keep you there, Kerri-Anne has devoted herself to both developing her talents and increasing her business knowledge. Her commitment to excellence in both the creative practice and business know-how in the arts and culture sectors is widely respected and emulated.
Never one to simply follow the status quo, Kerri-Anne puts both her creative and practical natures to work for her and other artistes through her work as Kei Dubb. She is consistently working smartly to explore new paradigms in the arts and culture sectors by innovating creative economy business models and is unselfishly leaving a model for independent creatives to follow. As she works to create opportunities for herself and other artistes in this new creative economy, this artiste and businesswoman is showing no signs of slowing down and is proving herself to be a pioneer who will leave a mark that others will follow for years to come.
Kerri-Anne holds a Bachelor’s degree in Linguistics and French, and is currently in the final throws of completing her Masters in Arts and Culture Management.
