Tell us a little about your background...
Jazz/World recording artist Kenny Love has worn many hats in the musical arena -- international radio/video promoter, media publicist, composer, producer, multi-instrumentalist, and vocalist. His foray into the world of music began at the tender age of four when, as he recalls, “A miniature trumpet was casually removed from my grasp (and lips) during preparation for a March of Dimes parade as a result of my having failed to cause it to transmit sound, although I was huffing and puffing quite professionally.” This would later become the first instrument for which he received formal training and ultimately mastered.

A native of Texas, Kenny received musical training from 1970-1976 while in elementary, junior high, and high school, eventually adding the bass guitar, strings, piano, and an extensive study of music composition to his repertoire. He also spent two years at Prairie View A&M University in Texas as a Music Education Major. At the completion of his sophomore year, he joined and spent four years in the Army, after which time he became an independent recording artist.

Kenny performed with several bands in Texas and Germany over the years, including The Lights of Soul (1976), Instant Function (1976-1978), Just Us & Duane (1982), High Rise (1984-1985), Nightwynd (1987), and The Wall of Jazz (2009). In 1984, he was signed by the notable major label R&B producer Aubrey "Skip" Gravatt, after Gravatt, also credited with having discovered disco queen Evelyn Champagne King, heard one of Kenny’s studio recordings. The major label deal never materialized, however, due to Mr. Gravatt's untimely death. Kenny subsequently released several independent single recordings that received both international radio airplay and print media coverage.

Kenny began his career as a radio/video promoter and media publicist in 1991 after successfully marketing, promoting, and publicizing his first recording independently that year. He formally retired in 2010 to return to his first loves of music composition and music production.

Until 2011, Kenny had released no albums as a solo artist, but did release three R&B/Dance singles as a solo artist, entitled "All Of My Love," and "Just Want To Dance (With You)," in 1991 and "Vampire Love" in 2003, all of which received international accolades. He is currently releasing select original Jazz music tracks, with the first track titled, "Voyage to Serenity." "Voyage to Serenity" will also be a selection on Kenny's upcoming full-length compilation release entitled "cAsE sEnSiTiVe," which is slated for release this summer.

The multi-talented, multifaceted entertainer admits that he enjoys composing, recording and producing equally because each contains its own unique and separate element and experience. His choice of music for his own listening pleasure is jazz, and he describes his personal genre as Jazz/World Hybrid, stating “My sound was developed after I discovered the amazing 'coloring' that can be affected and executed via inverted 7th, 9th, and 11th chords within a musical composition.”

Kenny’s musical influences include The Crusaders, George Duke, Stanley Clarke, Herbie Hancock, Lenny White, and Donald Byrd. He readily admits that the best advice he’s ever been given is “Don’t sign with a major label,” and says he is still assessing the worst advice. Kenny attributes his longevity and success in the music industry to “Taking the next breath, struggling, and survival – though not necessarily in that particular order.”
