East London’s King of Soul Kevin East first came to wider attention when his 2003 debut album Kevin East was released by Ravensbourne Records to rave reviews across the whole of the Soul and Urban music press and a plethora of airplay that lasted over a year thanks to stations like Jazz FM; Solar Radio; Soul City; FM Fusion 1073 & Soul 24-7. This led to a series of live shows including the Vibe Festival in Burgess Park; All-Nighters for Solar & Soul City in Dover & Romford and a headline gig at the Clapham Grand.
Kevin has since released a number of singles both on Ravensbourne Records and his own Kevin East Music as well as having tracks released on Soul Unsigned compilation albums. He signed to DPT Records in 2016 and two versions of his single Funky Times featuring trumpeting legend Kenny Wellington (Beggar & Co/Light of the World), the second a Garage remix by the awesome Zariis have seen him sweep the Urban and Dance music airwaves winning plaudits from Tony Blackburn in the process.
Kevin has now got a new single and video Cold Heart about to be released by DPT Records so look out for more news soon.
