Kenneka Cook came up with her sound putting beats together with a Vox Lil Looper pedal; eventually she set up shop in producer Scott Lane's old house and put together an impressive ten tracks. With her single My Universe she puts her funky jazz foot in, and takes her soul foot out. It’s a mesmerizing pendulum beat that makes the perfect backdrop for her vocal power.
We love that she is doing things a bit differently, and that her songs are interesting, thoughtful, and well composed. Her sound is a refreshing mix of soul and throwback grooviness.
“What about love,
Love: can we get that back?
Can we get on the right track?”— Kenneka Cook
