Official Biography (courtesy of Tondrae Kemp)
Tondrae Kemp is eclectic soul, a radiant fusion of hip-hop, blues, rock, and reggae, anchored in what he calls "The Soul Starter Kit" of Wonder, Gaye, Mayfield, Withers, and Hathaway.
Kemp is currently performing his full-length original LP, "Sun Money," released by Kwality Records in 2012. His single, "Say If You Want Me To Leave," was voted by About.com the 17th Best R&B Song of the year. For Elmore Magazine, the standout track is "The Hotter the Fire," which "blends electronic beats, jazzy chord changes, intense lead guitar and a great vocal." Louisiana Cultural Vistas Magazine is impressed by "Happiness," which captures the "raw spirit of old blues" within a "modern sensibility." Overall, as Soultracks.com writes, Kemp is "soulful, with a dash of folk, a little bit reggae, and a slight peppering of everything else in between."
Tondrae Kemp was recently showcased in Red Bull's "SoundSelect Presents: New York", featuring Thundercat.
"Sun Money" is available online and in stores now.
