My Rhythm & My Blues
There is nothing new about r&b regardless of how many fun descriptions we can conjure up (i.e. neo-soul, urban-soul, and urban-alternative). How many ways can one say, \'I love you deeper\' or \'we should have sex?\' Be honest, the only difference in todays R&B is the packaging (alternative style) and the show (the expression). Speaking of, let's talk about Keni Myles. Indianapolis must grow artists/crooners in a field somewhere. Haven\'t most of us seen the behind-the-scenes of our favorite entertainers where they began singing at an early age (Keni at age 5) - in church and city wide tournaments. And they\'re all from Detroit, Ohio, Philadelphia or Indiana? An alumnus of Kentucky State University majoring in voice and music education, Keni has left himself no alternative except to succeed, specifically in the field of music. It is not always necessary that artist have a music education, but sometimes the difference is obvious. In Keni\'s case-VERY obvious. Armed with faith and an un-relenting desire to become a career entertainer, Keni knew Los Angeles was the next move. Indiana called Los Angeles to make room for Keni\'s arrival and he hit the ground running. Keni joined the male singing group 20/20 and began a recording agreement for DreamWorks. The group opened for and performed with international superstars such as Stevie Wonder and Yolanda Adams. Also realizing the importance of expressive performance, Keni decided that a strong stage presence could be the difference between him and many other performers and began the next phase of his artistic development: theater. Keni immediately landed feature roles in the stageplays \'Lord, There\'s a Stranger in My House\' in the role of the famous Beula Johnson. Keni also appeared in \'Love Games\' and \'Make Mine 3, 6, 9\' where he further exemplified TRUE artistry singing, dancing and acting. Now is the time for Keni Myles to embark upon his long awaited solo music career. Keni has performed with Mariah Carey, The Nappy Roots, Twista, Christina Aguilera, Ali Woodson (former lead vocalist of the Temptation), Vanessa Bell Armstrong and Keith Washington. Keni was also the featured artist on like Jay Leno, Ellen, Sharon Osborne, Orlando Jones and The Craig Killbourne Show. As exceptional ability does, the crème always rises to the top and often sits alone.
