ABOUT THE SINGLE
The Soulful Nerd™, Kenny Wesley ushers in the Holiday season with his contemporary adaptation of "Toyland" - one of Victor Herbert's most famous songs from his Christmas-themed 1903 operetta "Babes in Toyland" based on characters from fairy tales and Mother Goose nursery rhymes. Featuring producer Carlton Hicks, Kenny delivers this song with sophisticated splendor taking the listener back to childhood memories of their own “mystic merry Toyland."
Mild. Awkward. Ear-piercing. Some call him a paradox: The soulful nerd with the huge voice. His name is Kenny Wesley. ”My mom said I came out the womb screaming, and I’ve been screaming every since!” he jests. The North Carolina born, D.C.-based artist has a voice that can shatter glass, lilt with the tenderness of a soul crooner, sing a Mexican lullaby, or bust out the stank.
His love for music and other cultures has taken him around the world where he has performed before presidents, dignitaries, heads of state, and high-profile celebrities. He has shared the stage with several national recording artists such as Alice Smith, Stephanie Mills, Anthony David, Kindred, Eric Roberson, Sy Smith, N'Dambi, Yolanda Adams, Tamia, Zo! & Phonte (The Foreign Exchange), Vikter Duplaix, Mike Phillips, Gordon Chambers, Maya Azucena and Leela James.
His songs have been featured on a number of media outlets and projects such as: FOX's "So You Think You Can Dance", ABC’s “The View”, Music Choice, Good Morning Arizona!, WBFF FOX45 Baltimore, soulbounce.com, The Contemporary Songbook 3 (Soulunsigned), The Soul Prototype (Kebomusic), Beautiful Weirdo (GreenTea)and Land of Sheep Ruled by Pigs (Wes Felton), et al.
