New Jersey native, Lenny Harold, already has many accomplishments under his old moniker “Chanj”. He’s the final winner of the late-night TV Talent Show; Amateur Night At The Apollo (2008), sang tribute to Patti Labelle, Smokey Robinson, and Berry Gordy and performed for the Apollo Theatre’s 75th Anniversary. He’s worked with greats such as Teddy Riley, Dre and Vidal, Mike City and Marsha Ambrosius. He’s toured from North America to Europe, been a special musical guest for various political events, performed for the troops in 2009, received numerous achievement awards for his volunteer work in his home town, and also, received the key to the city of Newark, NJ.
After some signing failures, a new direction and a new name, Lenny Harold released his first album, “The Journal of Wonders: Tale of the Phoenix in the Moon Labyrinth” on March 22, 2011. Backed by KP Entertainment, BlackBelt Music Group and his own company Drink Up The Music, Inc his musical expression truly began with a sound he coined “Hybrid Soul.” With its unique production by Cass Maya, Taylor Ryan and Solomon Cortes of WMC Productions, this carefully crafted combination of gentility and edge, has already made a lasting impression on listeners.
As Lenny branched into his new sound and name, he found himself, numerous times, on the acclaimed Highline Ballroom stage in New York City, he also performed for the CMJ Music Festival, Eclectic Ride Music Festival with Urbanworld, was added to the BET Music Matters campaign and featured on “Shuffle” a compilation album for VH1 Save The Music.
Now with grander stages, crazy studio sessions and hardcore rehearsals, Lenny embraces this new chapter in his musical journey as a current member of Teddy Riley's acclaimed group, BLACKSTREET. Still, while touring the world with legends Lenny continued his musical story telling with the release of his EP "Yesterday Morning" on October 22, 2013. He's now currently in the studio recording the follow up to his first album and has gracefully teased us with the world anthem, "Mayday," featuring The IZM.
“I’ve always set the goal for myself of being a true legend. Music that moves, creates, brings forth and sets free nothing but goodness and inspiration. I want to be able to open doors for someone else with a dream, that is, often misunderstood by executives and let them know to keep pushing forth, do it yourself and MAKE others believe.” proclaims the singer/songwriter.
Without a doubt the movement continues.
