Kenya will be live with Calvin Francis tomorrow from 7pm till 9pm talking about her forthcoming Moments 4 Love gig at The Hideaway this coming Saturday and her Expansion Records Remix album ‘Skin Deep’ SKIN DEEP released on November 11th. And we can’t wait!
Kenya is a richly inspired vocalist and songwriter whose jazz-kissed soul style is wooing admirers simultaneously in the U.S. and U.K. Ironically, her lyrically captivating compositions almost never made it to the ears of the public. Kenya’s life roles as wife and mother of two sons plus working for over a decade as a clinician and educator nearly eclipsed her vision of herself as a viable artist bearing valuable musical gifts.
Based in Chicago, Kenya released her debut version of My Own Skin in the UK/Europe on March 15, 2015. The album peaked at #1 on the UK Soul chart for four consecutive weeks (she knocked out Charlie Wilson from the #1 spot).
“There are many layers to me and spaces within me,” Kenya shares. “My Own Skin is about the importance of being yourself. For me, that means as a woman and as an artist. In the music business today and with the aid of technology, vocal identity is almost non-existent.” Kenya
