Thomas is an artist that really hasn't got this due as
far as a soul singer is concerned mostly due to his pop status that
people categories him in. Although his forte is covering mostly remakes
of that I've heard of him, his latest effort 'Crazy
World' is truly in a class by itself by his ranks.
On listening to Kenny you would
never think he was a pop act because he has a lot of soul in him as
evident on this record. Produced by Fred
McFarlane (Dennis Taylor,
India T), this song is an infectious house track that
has you moving from the word get go. Armed with a ruggedly thumping
baseline, keys and simple symths, Kenny's smooth baritone voice eases
on the lyrics so effortlessly that it doesn't seem as if he's singing
at times in a word - SWEET.
I couldn't find much in the way
of a bio on Kenny other than he hails from my native homeland of the
United Kingdom. He's has three previous full length CDs ('Voices'
and 'Wait for Me' and 'Best
of') all on Cool Tempo
Records spanning hits such as 'Tender Love',
'Outstanding' and 'Tripping
on your love'. '
There is no album yet but the
single is in record shops now so I'd suggest going to your local store
and pick up a copy. A TY-D pick
