Multi-platinum selling artist performed in Liverpool on Saturday 6th June.
Kenny Thomas was one of the countries biggest soul stars of the nineties, his debut album Voices went double platinum and earned Kenny 2 Brit Award nominations.
After signing to Warner Brothers in the USA, Kenny took his music around the world.
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.
Over the last few years Kenny has had the privilege of touring and sharing the stage with artistes such as the late Bobby Womack, Lisa Stansfield, Shalamar, Patrice Rushen, Tavares, Alexander O'Neal, Beverley Knight, Mica Paris and Level 42 to name a few.
2014 was a very good year for Kenny in terms of live performance. He had the pleasure of performing for none other than Mr. Quincy Jones himself, who was more than impressed with his rendition of the Ray Charles classic “Georgia on my mind” – saying that “Kenny is a great singer”.
