Kut Klose is an American R&B trio that formed in Atlanta, Georgia. The three female singers that made up the group were Athena Cage, Lavonn Battle and Tabitha Duncan. The girls were discovered by Keith Sweat who produced their debut album. He also sang a duet with the group on "Get Up On It."

Career[edit]

In 1995, Kut Klose released their first album, Surrender. Despite releasing three singles, "Surrender," "Lovely Thang," and "I Like", the only one to make a significant impact was "I Like", which peaked at #8 on the US Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart and #34 on the Billboard Billboard Hot 100.[1] The album peaked at #12 on the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart.[2]

They collaborated with Keith Sweat on his 1996 single "Twisted", and Cage was featured on his 1996 single "Nobody". In 2007, the group performed with Sweat for his Sweat Hotel Live project.[3]

In September 2010, a new song, "Let It Ring", was released by the trio as a buzz single via iTunes in anticipation of an untitled second album.[3]
