Kes C to Release Pop Single Love Is Blind With Same Titled New Album
Kes C grew up in a musical household hearing blues and soul greats and took up music, played around with styles, collaborated and soon releases her debut EP.
Kes was born in South Africa during Apartheid and then her parents decided to flee the country and raise the family in rural England, having experienced many life-threatening situations.
Subsequently, after the London bombings in 2005, Kes moved to Norwich and played the local scene in her family band Fuzzballs, solo gigs as Kes C, in cover bands and as a wedding singer. Kes C now lives in Shropshire.
Growing up surrounded by a musical family, Kes listened to blues and soul and wrote her first song on guitar aged 12. She sung in school choirs and landed lead parts in musicals, then moved to London aged 18 to pursue her musical career.
To develop her diversity and interpretation of songs, Kes experimented with musical styles such as soul, funk, heavy rock, dance and trip hop.
Kes records songs for Molan Publishing, who approached her in 2014 during a recording session at the Beehouse Recording Studio in Mid-Wales.
As a keen live performer, Kes currently features in Hookstick, an original electrofunk band based on the Welsh border in Shropshire, whose music can be found on digital music site Noochoon.com
Lane has worked with artists including Neville Staples, Linval Golding of The Specials and Fun Boy Three and various members of Selector, forming his reputation as a producer in diverse musical genres.
The EP, Love is Blind will be released on 28 September 2015 with distribution from Universal Music Operations and comes with a bonus club remix from Mikey Gallagher.
