While he had only limited exposure in the States, Kenny Thomas burst onto the UK scene in the 90s as one of the hot young pop/soul performers.
Thomas first hit the charts in 1991, covering The Gap Band’s 80s hit “Outstanding,” taking it to the UK Top 20. It began a string of hits that lasted a half decade, including the Top 10 “Thinking About Your Love,” “Best of You” and “Trippin’ On Your Love.” His albums Voices and Wait For Me were also smashes.
The hits slowed down for Thomas as the new millennium arrived, but he continued to record, issuing Crazy World to some acclaim in 2005, and Breathe in 2011. He also served as the lead singer for a reunited Living In a Box in the later ‘10s.
In 2018, a Nigel Lowis remix of Thomas’s underappreciated 2011 release “Your Love” climbed the R&B charts, reminding listeners again of the rich catalog of Thomas’s releases over the years.
