Newcomer Kes is yearning for attention and after listening to his debut offering, Audio Justice, we can categorically say he deserves it. The Orange County-born, Compton-raised singer-songwriter seems to have been here before as he presents a project that is sonically sound and polished.
“I've always been an all or nothing kind of guy,” states Kes, and that mindset is reflected on the 5-song set. The entire project boast a nostalgic 80s vibe (soft rock, funk and soul) with standouts “Gimme Your Love,” a lover’s lullaby, and the soul-stirring “Carry On,” a hypnotic heart-raiser.
We’re guessing L.A. Reid and Babyface saw gold before signing him to LaFace/Epic.
