Kenny was born in Islington, North London. In the early eighties the heart of the neighbourhood was beating with the sounds of Soul, Jazz, Reggae, Lovers Rock and Jazz Funk. He sang in his local church to the delight of his mother and had a busy career as an amateur boxer to the delight of his father!
Kenny’s 3rd studio album, “Him,” was in the record company starting blocks ready to go into the promotional/marketing machine when he had his epiphany: He hadn’t stopped for 6 years and he needed to take time out. He walked away from his record company, his 3rd album and the commercial treadmill and immersed himself in the underground modern soul scene and simply hasn’t looked back.
For the discerning lovers of modern UK soul Kenny has never been away. They’ve watched him become one of the finest voices and performers the UK has produced. He’s a rare artist, who can seamlessly move from soul to broader musical arenas. In 2004 he lent his vocal talent to Stonebridge’s smash album “Can’t Get Enough” where he featured on the track “Gotta Give It Up” and then again in 2007 on a further Stonebridge album called “Music Takes Me” on the track “You Don’t Know”.
