Meet the artists
Kenny remains one of the most important and successful UK soul singers, with his debut album ‘Voices’ selling 600,000 copies in the UK alone, achieving a total of 8 Top 40 singles and 2 Top 10 records whilst picking up 2 x BRIT-Award Nominations for ‘Best Male Vocalist’ and ‘Best Newcomer’.
In 2021, Thomas made his comeback with Gary Barlow’s viral ‘Crooner Sessions’ cover of ‘Thinking About Your Love’ and released his acclaimed autobiography ‘Baring My Soul’; which received outstanding reviews alongside being featured in a BBC Top of The Pops documentary on BBC2 having performed on the show no less than 9 times over 30 years.
2022 saw Thomas release his first new music in over a decade – two critically praised singles championed by BBC Radio 2, 6 Music, Jazz FM and Mi-Soul plus no less than 9 editorial Soul playlists across Spotify, Deezer, Apple and Amazon.
SouLutions are the writing team of Steve Lee and Louise Mehan who’ve worked and performed together for over 20 years. They began writing their own songs in 2007 and performing them under the guise of AMBIENCE. Unfortunately these weren’t received well at first.
The songwriting was put on hold until 2014 when encouragement from Louise’s mother and Paul ‘Bumski’ Redfer plus collaboration with Gary Van den Bussche and Billy Freeman (Dizabone) helped the track ‘Listen’ to become an overnight success.
The new confidence has spurred on the release of four successful albums ‘Destiny’, ‘Thankful’, ‘Fate’ & ‘Anthology’ and popular live shows with a band.
