Kenny Lattimore headlines performances for Jazz at the Creek
MARKET CREEK AMPHITHEATER (KUSI) Jazz at the Creek is back! This weekend, Kenny Lattimore will headline performances at the Market Creek Amphitheater.
Hailed by the New York Times as a “modern soul man,” Grammy Award-nominated singer/songwriter Kenny Lattimore has landed another Top 10 hit with “Love Me Back.” The simple feel-good track was the lead single from Lattimore’s seventh R&B solo album, Anatomy of a Love Song. The project was the first release from the singer’s eOne Music-distributed Sincere Soul Records.
Says Lattimore, whose signature “For You” became an instant top 10 hit, “This project brings together all the musical elements of songs I have loved throughout the years. From breakup and makeup songs, to the highs and lows—I wanted to make sure this album touched everyone on my journey back to love.”
Lattimore also recently returned to his roots in gospel music with the release of “A Kenny Lattimore Christmas.” The stunning 11 song holiday project was created with Multi Grammy, Stellar & Dove Award winning producer Aaron Lindsey and landed him a #3 album position on the Billboard Gospel Charts. “This album was so fulfilling as it allowed me to sing various genres of music with a gospel/inspirational message complimenting my musical purpose: speaking to the hearts of women and the minds of men encouraging them in love.”
Growing up in Washington, D.C., Lattimore was raised on gospel music and such R&B/pop icons as Chaka Khan, Marvin Gaye, Donny Hathaway and Stevie Wonder. His freshman year at Howard University gave way to Lattimore becoming the lead singer for R&B group Maniquin. Signed to Epic, the group released the single “I Wanna Ride,” produced by the Gap Band’s Charlie Wilson.
Lattimore relocated to New York City as a solo act and was signed to Columbia in 1995. Ushering in an R&B resurgence that counted D’Angelo and Maxwell in its ranks, Lattimore released his debut solo album a year later. The self-titled, gold-certified set spun off two top 20 hits: “Never Too Busy” and the romance classic “For You,” which peaked at No. 6 on the R&B charts.
