Kenny Lattimore's musical journey began in Washington, D.C., where he was raised on a musical diet of R&B, funk, gospel and jazz. Chaka Khan, whom Kenny met when he was just 8 years-old, was a major influence as were Earth, Wind & Fire, Aretha Franklin and The Winans Family gospel group.

  Kenny Lattimore - booking information  Music eventually became an obsession. Kenny Lattimore studied classical and chamber music in high school, and also learned to sight-read music. Soon after enrolling at Washington's renowned Howard University, he joined a fledgling vocal group called Maniquin. The band landed a major label deal in 1987, but their 1989 debut LP was met with public indifference. However, the experience resulted in countless one-night stand performances, which allowed Kenny to cultivate his remarkable stage abilities.

Kenny Lattimore - booking information When Kenny Lattimore finally left the band in 1990, he possessed the skills to pursue a solo singing career. Towards that goal, he left the cozy confines of his Washington, D.C., home and relocated to New York City. "It was a big move for me, but I had to do it," Kenny recalls. "I'd come to grips with the fact that I didn't want to be a part of anyone's group or situation, I wanted to be a solo artist. So that's what I worked toward."

Kenny signed with Columbia Records in 1995, and his debut album was greeted enthusiastically by a public starving for intelligent R&B and funk. Though the album won critical accolades and a Grammy nomination, Kenny didn't rest on his laurels. In concert he displayed a jazzman's penchant for spontaneity and improvisation. As the Philadelphia Inquirer noted in a concert review: "Lattimore jumped from octave to octave with his scatting, switching to a more melodic idea only after exhausting the rhythmic possibilities."

Kenny Lattimore - booking information In 1997, Kenny Lattimore displayed his interpretative gifts by teaming with smooth jazz guitarist Peter White, performing a cover of Joni Mitchell's "River" (the resulting track is featured on White's holiday album, "Songs of the Season"). Kenny's matinee idol good looks made him a reluctant sex symbol, and led to an appearance on the nationally syndicated TV program, "Moesha."

However, listeners who focus solely on Kenny's sexy persona do themselves a disservice. Kenny is a musical prophet whose spirit is in full bloom on "From The Soul of Man." Kenny Lattimore courageously embraces and extends the best R&B conventions to create a stylish masterwork all his own.

Kenny Lattimore was married to R&B artist Chante Moore - now divorced.
