The idea of the love for life captured in the beauty of a song describes the music and song writing of singer Dan Kenneth and producer and songwriter Rod Clemmons of Verdict Records. The two have proven that anyone can prevail when the odds are against them. Putting spirituality first keeps Kenneth grounded as he continues to produce song after song and make each one of us want to be in love. After years of working with unsatisfactory musicians and producers, Dan met producer and writer Clemmons, and together they created a collection of songs with production that gives Dan the musical environment to shine and express his vision musically and spiritually.
Dan Kenneth was born and raised in Wilmington DE with many family roots in South Carolina, Charleston to be specific. Having found the Lord at the age of five his life, filled with personal and family challenges, would become the platform by which he would build his artistry and performance persona.
However he claims not to be a persona. It is his heart and desire to bring joy, celebration, and truth to the front. If you listen to the song “From The Heart” it is clear that as a result of loving from a place so deep it allows an individual to see the beauty of extending that same love to someone or something else.
If individuals are fortunate to find a love like Dan Kenneth has here, they should consider themselves lucky. This song is clearly not simply about love between two people, but about that special love that exists on a spiritual plane, for those who have a strong belief in faith.
This song invites the listener the opportunity to look deep within and determine if they are at a point where they are willing to expose their inner most emotions to invite the love of faith into their lives.
Old school R&B stalwarts will tell you in a heartbeat, that the over-sexed, electro-produced nonsense the kids pass off as R&B and Soul these days is a bunch of new school debris. None of these “singers” can sing and most of their songs lack real fire and passion.
Kenneth is delivering on an uplifting spiritual tip, that is deep and satisfying on “From The Heart”. His is the smooth, mellow type of music that you can listen to over and over again, and where Kenneth’s calming, melodic voice easily lulls you into a place of peace surrounded by love. The lyrics are haunting. The melody takes you back. This is classic R&B and soul.
Kenneth handles all with enormous talent. His voice can break a word just at the right point and send you into the ecstasy of love. He delivers crisp and clean soulful sounds to help any listener through rough patches. Clearly Dan Kenneth has utilized his gifts and talents to the fullest on “From The Heart”.
