Beauty and Soul Brought to London: One to Watch: Kenzie May

Boston-born, yet Britain-bred, Kenzie May is one of London’s young talented musicians using her experiences in the city as both her backdrop and inspiration. With admirable amounts of experience under her belt, Kenzie’s beats are organic in that they flow freely,  consisting of tongue-in-cheek wordplay and fluid, honest lyrics.

With songs such as the raw, moving “Say Nothing” which is almost reminiscent of ballads of the early nineties, to the upcoming single “Hide & Seek”, her word play based on love, with the twist of childhood games, memories, and nursery rhymes are honest and right on point for the more literary, thinking crowd.

Moved by  art and creativity, the mesmerising Kenzie May is both beautiful and talented. Her writing style and composition are one of the most relevant pieces of work for someone so in touch with our generation. The rawness in her synthesized and digital sounds  break the mold from the forgettable radio releases we hear constantly.

Having collaborated with favourites and pros, such as Sub Focus in their tune “Falling Down” ad well as BeatauCue “Slow Down” and Bastille & F Stokes “Bad Blood”, Kenzie May is hard working and experimental with different techniques.

Writing in a flow which makes the surface of your skin chill, as well as your body to rock form side to side, is a rare talent which Kenzie May possesses, as each song is haunting in a way to lead to an afterthought and reflection – pop music for the thinking set, if you will.

 Kenzie’s single “Hide & Seek” produced by Jocke Åhlund of Teddybears, is set to have its video release by the end of the month, done by De La Muerte Films.

About Estefania Hageman

Hi, my name is Estefania Hageman. I love animals more than I love people. I find it hard to trust people who do not love animals. I study broadcast journalism at University of the Arts London. Going to art school to study journalism has been one of the craziest roller coaster rides of my life. I find I have millions of ideas running around in my head that I am constantly dying to get out. I am Panamanian and I find it easier to express myself in Spanish at times. I was born in the United States but have lived in London for over ten years. Britain, to me, is one of the most fascinating places to experience in the world. Sport and fashion are two of the most moving things that can bring humans together and help make the world go round. It is up to writers, artists, athletes and musicians to communicate these things to the universe. Anyone can connect through a love of sport or art. Everyone is passionate about something. I love to write about anything and everything and most importantly I like to make people laugh. Smiling is one of the most natural things humans can do. Its universal in every culture. Music, art, film are all passions of mine and I hope I can be involved with them somehow for the rest of my life. More importantly, I could survive on several bowls of cereal a day and I would not need much else. x
