Performing Live – Sunday 27th August 2017

Keni Stevens Performing Live Campsoul 2017

Keni Stevens turned the Brit Soul scene upside down by daring to move away from ‘the dance beat’ with his debut album Blue Moods. Blue Moods topped the soul charts in the mid 80s and became a landmark album of ballads selling over 150,000 copies in the UK alone.

His songs are about life, love and relationships, taking us on a journey through emotions and feelings we have all touched upon as our lives have unfolded, with its inevitable, twists, turns, ups and downs.

His latest work ‘Out of the Blue’ comes completely ‘out of the blue’! It marks the long awaited return to the world stage for Keni, the production expertly crafted by musician producer Mx-Ze pulls from classic and contemporary soul, setting up a classy mid tempo backdrop for Keni to deliver in his unmistakable dark smokey style.

Its great to see Keni Stevens and Brit Soul back at the top of the Soul charts! 30 years after his album ‘Blue Moods’ hit the spot selling over a million copies worldwide.

The CD ‘Out Of The Blue’ is currently available in record stores in most parts of the world, and the first single from the album ‘One Way Ticket To Love’ is available as a download from DSG via iTunes.
