Kenya is a richly inspired vocalist / songwriter whose jazz-kissed soul style has been wooing admirers around the world. Her jazz influence creates music that embodies a contemporary groove and has charted on the US R&B Billboard Chart as well as the Top 10 UK Soul Chart and other European radio charts.


The EP ‘Jazz Made Rhythm’ in 2012 pointed Kenya to a future musical direction which was followed up with the launch of her number one selling debut album ‘My Own Skin’ which peaked at #1 on the UK Soul chart for four consecutive weeks in 2015.


Kenya starts work on a new jazz influenced project in 2018 which may include her song writing partner, producer and co-performer (‘Be Here’ on ‘My Own Skin’) Kendall Duffie from Kloud 9 who accompanied her on the Soulfully Yours Tour. Kloud 9 is Kendall and his twin brother Kelvis Duffie who are available to join a tour of Soulfully Yours in the future.
