KENTRELL. Remember the name. He is an artist whose time has come
The emerging star is back to display his brilliance and is ready to impact the
entertainment arena with his own brand of “Pop Soul”.
The self assured singer songwriter is working at his craft, fine tuning, and
delivering songs which manifests in soulful prominence heard in his melodic voice. KENTRELL gained early attention with a major record deal with Jive Records (since absorbed into the RCA brand).
The dynamic entertainer made an impressive chart debut with “Encore” at #39 in the music trade industry magazine Billboard, resulting in a top seller on ITunes. However, the changing of the guard at his label resulted in key internal changes at the company, and the artist found himself having to regroup and rethink his position. Parting from RCA, his dream was not to be deferred, and he continued striving and moving forward.
KENTRELL is currently preparing for his forthcoming album Love Untitled. To re-introduce himself to audience KENTRELL has released two initial singles. The first song, "Ready For The World", reflects KENTRELL’s belief in the preservation of happiness. He will also release the socially conscious "Stray Bullet.” A record relevant to the times, that speaks on the increasing mindless violent shootings prevalent not only in his city of Chicago, but, worldwide.
I had a chance to catch up with KENTRELL to talk about his album and the release of "Ready for The World" and "Stray Bullet". Click here for video interview.
Encompassing down home and streetwise sensibility is planted in KENTRELL, as he is surely evolving as a multi-faceted talent to be reckoned with.
In the past he has worked with music producers Malay (Frank Ocean, Jamie Foxx) and KP (Pink and John Legend). Additionally, Brian Michael Cox (Mariah Carey, Mary J. Blige…), and Mario Winans (Whitney Houston, Rick Ross…).
He continues to build his entertainment career by expanding his discography. He is rising like a Phoenix from a new foundation, fusing his style into a natural musical progression for incredible things to come.
It’s back to the future for KENTRELL…bringing back that “feel good music.”
