The music of GRAMMY®-nominated singer/songwriter Kenny Lattimore reflects the best of all worlds because he combines the timeless sounds of traditional R&B with his own unique contemporary flair to create a universal sound that transcends boundaries and appeals to audiences of all ages, races and genres. His body of work, which includes hits such as “Never Too Busy” and the Grammy-nominated “For You,” has garnered two gold-selling albums, the NAACP Image Award for Best New Artist as well as nominations from the Soul Train and Stellar Awards.
The music of Kenny Lattimore powerfully connects with the hearts of women and the minds of men. His work inspires numerous artists, including Kanye West, who sampled Lattimore’s “Lately” in the song “I’m In It,” which features Assassin and Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon and is included on West’s new No. 1 album, Yeezus. Of course, Lattimore’s relationship with West goes back for years. Indeed, West received his first production credits on Lattimore’s “Never Too Busy” and “Just What It Takes.”
Considered a “modern soul man” by The New York Times, Lattimore has received rave reviews for his dramatic stage shows, musical sensuality and a vocal agility perfectly coupled with a compelling subtlety. A diverse array of artists, including Musiq Soulchild, Rachelle Ferrell, Ray J, Nancy Wilson, Heather B., Kim Waters and Brian Culbertson, have sought out his talents for their own projects. He performed the duet “Love Will Find a Way” with Heather Headley that was featured on The Lion King II: Simba’s Pride. He and Chanté Moore recorded the Marvin Gaye/Tammi Terrell duet “You’re All I Need to Get By” that was chosen as the theme song for the BET show The Family Crews.
Much like John Legend, Lionel Richie, Frank Sinatra and Aaron Neville, his artistically respected music defies categorization and attracts racially mixed audiences in widely varied settings, such as jazz festivals, adult contemporary events, R&B tours and all-American musical gatherings. He is currently completing a new album and preparing for a world tour next year.
