Rihki Kennebrew’s musicianship and artistry are reflective of The Late Michael Jackson and The Incomparable Prince. Vocally Rihki Kennebrew delivers the soulful smoothness of legendary greats such as Luther Vandross, and Sam Cooke. Clearly this body of work is a step above the standardized holiday music.
My Name Ain’t Santa Claus is a smart blend of Soul, southern funk, jazz, opera and spirited-filled truthful worship. The mood ranges from vibrant fluid infectious grooves to heartfelt harmonious anthems.
Although My Name Ain’t Santa Claus falls short of being flawless, giving way to slight imperfections in it’s overall production. It is clear that Rihki Kennebrew is emerging as an innovative producer and brilliant singer-songwriter.
Featured songs from this CD include The Shock City Remix to Southern Soul Lullabies adapted to the music of Waterfalls by TLC. The Motown/Stax laced All She Wants For Christmas and Silence (while the snow falls down), which lends itself to a powerful inner court experience.
In 2012 Def Anointed International, Shock City Records & 21st Century Soul will release a full discography of Rihki Kennebrew’s Music.
The discography will include 10 full length CDs and multiple singles encompassing music from 1988 to the present. Rihki Kennebrew's Music Is Available Now On iTunes and other cyber distribution outlets
