Hailed by the New York Times as a “modern soul man,” Grammy Award- nominated singer/songwriter Kenny Lattimore is ready to release his eighth solo project «Vulnerable» on his label Sincere Soul Records distributed by Liger Enterprises/Amped Distribution.

Lattimore 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.”

Lattimore's last studio effort Anatomy of a Love Song landed him another Top 10 hit with “Love Me Back.” That feel-good track was the lead single from his seventh R&B solo album.

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 Grammy nominated romance classic “For You,” which peaked at No. 6 on the R&B charts.

Lattimore’s body of work includes his critically acclaimed sophomore album From the Soul of a Man and two top-10 charting duet albums with singer Chanté Moore: Things That Lovers Do and the gospel/R&B double- CD Uncovered/Covered. Lattimore’s following solo project was the 2008 covers album Timeless.

Along the way, the singer has garnered Soul Train and Stellar Awards nominations as well as the NAACP Image Award for Best New Artist. His nuanced vocals have graced projects by a diverse array of artists from Musiq Soulchild and Rachelle Ferrell to Nancy Wilson and Brian Culbertson. This
prestigious list also includes Kanye West, who sampled Lattimore’s “Lately” for the track “I’m in It” from West’s No. 1 album Yeezus.

Fans around the globe will be happy to know that Kenny will release his new single titled „Push“ on August 18, 2017. The new album project is sure to showcase the same sultry voice accompanied with an array of sweet harmonies and memorable melodies that will continue to add to the legacy of authentic R&B.
