Kenny Rials is global. He’s a native from Louisiana, a New Yorker for ten years while studying acting and singing, and now a Brit living in London. He’s performed and visited 52 countries, but has kept his southern twang and roots. “I still say y’all and have fried chicken and jambalaya at least once a month,” he admits.
While living in New York, Kenny performed in Broadway and Off-Broadway productions, but longed to sing and perform his own music. He was given the chance after meeting a producer in London. Kenny’s debut EP – Time Doesn’t Stand Still was released in 2014 and the follow up album, Second Chances, is available now.
With Second Chances, this is the singer most personal work yet. In many ways, Kenny continues to do what he does best by keeping us on the dance floor. The tracks are soaked in throbbing drops, pulsing percussions, and electronic effects, but it is Kenny’s rich voice and haunting lyrics that shine, especially in the title track, What’s Enough and the anti bullying anthem – It Never Rains Forever.
The result is a buoyant pop and dance album that mixes professions of romantic agony, reflection on past relationships, new relationships, and empowerment. With two power house dance remixes on the album as well, Kenny will keep us dancing through the night.
