Biography

Kem Owens, better known as Kem, was born in Nashville and raised in Detroit, big industrial city. He had experienced all the difficulties connected with growing up in the megalopolis, and that knowledge helped him to create his wonderful music. The performer’s creativity can be hardly put into the frames of one certain style: Kem's compositions include elements of jazz, soul, R&B and other genres, and such variety makes his art even more interesting. Add some stylish retro coloring and you will get quite the original musical cocktail.

The debut album Kemistry was released in 2003 and it is definitely worth mentioning that Kem self-produced his first studio work. Kemistry attracted the music lovers' attention in no time: they really enjoyed the atmosphere and mood, presented by the performer, and his single Love Calls debuted at the top of hip-hop and R&B chart in a very confident way. Two years later Kem issued his second album, which got the logical title Album II (2005). Single I Can't Stop Loving You became the real hit in the numerous Adult Contemporary radio stations. It is not the necessary fact that Kem’s music will be enjoyed by the teenagers, because it disposes for calmness and reflections, but adults will be interested in soft and leisured melodies that proved to be the recognizable feature of the singer’s creativity. Special attention was paid to the song You Might Win, created jointly with the legendary Stevie Wonder, who recorded the part of harmonica.

Kem’s third studio attempt Intimacy: Album III appeared in 2010 and its first single Why Would You Stay was immediately taken by various radio stations. Intimacy: Album III was created in Kem’s best traditions, which means that the recognizable atmosphere was presented entirely. Musician’s lyrics and delicate melodies pleased millions of listeners all around the world, and Kem achieved the reputation of an extremely talented and independent performer. The singer has plenty of new ideas that he realizes perfectly in his albums, and Intimacy: Album III is the brightest example of that.
