Kevin Cossom's "Excuses" Helps Cement His Solo Artistry

After making huge moves in the writing world, Grammy-nominated songwriter/ producer Kevin Cossom is now venturing out on his own to make his mark as a solo recording artist, with a brand new single and video entitled "Excuses".

He may not yet be a household name, but you definitely know his work. His biggest hit to date has been Keri Hilson’s "Knock You Down" featuring Kanye West and Ne-Yo, but you’ll also hear his talents on records featuring Chris Brown, Pusha T, Rick Ross, and Akon, to name a few.

Even with number-one records, and working with many of the industry’s A-list, Cossom’s remained humbled saying, “There’s nothing guaranteed in this game... I try to be happy with it, pat myself on the back, but move on as fast as possible because there’s so many other things that I want to do."

Kevin just released "Excuses", one of several tracks from his highly anticipated pre-album extended EP. To learn more about Cossom, check out his in-depth video EPK below, where he describes what it was like working with Keri Hilson, Rick Ross, Pusha T, and several others!
