"To finally have our music heard in the States is what I've worked towards my entire life," says Kloud 9 producer and vocalist Kendall Duffie. "I was born to make music, and after spending a few years building my chops overseas, I am glad the time has come to bring our brand of soul music back home."

Collaborator Kirk Whalum says "having just returned from England this week, I'm all too aware of the wide swath that the soulful sound of Kloud 9 has already cut in the world of "in-the-know" music fans in the UK. I can't wait for the U.S. to be on the same page and get hip to Kloud 9!"

Longtime supporter and friend Howard Hewett,says, "Kloud 9 have done it again!! When I listen to a song, I'm looking for a lyric and melody that's going to stick in my mind as well as my spirit. Kloud 9 has more than satisfied them both with "Can't Be Love" If the rest of the project is anything like this we're in for a fantastic musical treat!!"

"Our music is really for the grown and sexy - and not just as a cliché. It's music that sophisticated fans will appreciate for its thoughtful and sincere lyrics and relaxing melodies. Kloud 9 is music to just sit back and groove to...its sexiness is understated and we've found that people really appreciate us for that," adds Kloud 9's Kelvis "Clyde" Duffie

Kloud 9's "Special One" received early support from BET J, and their current single "Can't Be Love," is enjoying airplay around the country. The group will be making appearances this month in Miami (6/15), Fort Lauderdale (6/16), and Muskegon, Michigan (6/23). In July, Kloud 9 will appear at the International Music Summit in Atlanta.
