Mild. Awkward. Ear-piercing. Some call him a paradox: The soulful nerd with the huge voice. His name is Kenny Wesley. ”My mom said I came out the womb screaming, and I’ve been screaming every since!” he jests. The North Carolina born, D.C.-based artist has a voice that can shatter glass, lilt with the tenderness of a soul crooner, sing a Mexican lullaby, or bust out the stank.
His love for music and other cultures has taken him around the world where he has performed before presidents, dignitaries, heads of state, and high-profile celebrities. He has shared the stage with several national recording artists such as Alice Smith, Stephanie Mills, Anthony David, Kindred, Eric Roberson, Sy Smith, N'Dambi, Yolanda Adams, Tamia, Zo! & Phonte (The Foreign Exchange), Vikter Duplaix, Mike Phillips, Gordon Chambers, Maya Azucena and Leela James.
His songs have been featured on a number of media outlets and projects such as: EURWeb, Music Connection, Music Choice, Soulbounce.com, Soulmusic.com, The Contemporary Songbook 3 (Soulunsigned), The Soul Prototype (Kebomusic), Beautiful Weirdo (GreenTea), Land of Sheep Ruled by Pigs (Wes Felton), et al.
“Kenny Wesley is a breath of fresh air in the music world. It’s time that music lovers are taken to new heights in this industry and Kenny’s vocal talent is providing a wonderful ride.”
