First Listen: Kenya takes us "Back To Forever" on new single

Many of the artists we cover on SoulTracks amassed their fans during the 1990s or 2000s. Chicago-based singer, songwriter and podcaster Kenya came to our attention much more recently and has, in a short time, become a SoulTracks favorite. Her attractive mix of soul and jazz, all with a tasteful twist, has won a lot of fans looking for an adult alternative to what is playing on their local radio station.

Kenya is readying her upcoming album, S.H.E., and she has now given us a sneak peek with the cool new single, “Back to Forever.” With a steady beat underneath the keyboard lead, the song opens into Kenya’s soft vocals and its ethereal vibe.

Kenya tells us, "’Back to Forever’ is a song I produced and co-wrote with my band (Brandon McKenzie, Chuck Lacy, Terence Lee) as well as music producers Kendall Duffie and Stu Stapleton.  The song is about wanting to love again and letting go of past hurt.  It's a story I believe we all have experienced at some point...wanting to heal from a love gone wrong and hoping it will be better the second time around.”

Take a listen to “Back to Forever,” and welcome Kenya back to SoulTracks!
