Kenya's Rebirth


Kenya is a soulful and innovative singer/songwriter. "Music = air" for this artist as without it, she simply doesn't breathe. Singing since the age of 8, she was active in citywide choirs, jazz bands, show choirs and musical theater. In college, Kenya was a member of the renowned Howard Gospel Choir at Howard University and did background vocals for various independent artists.

Her debut EP titled "Starting Over" is a testimony to Kenya's journey: she is returning to the gift of music after being away from the craft (having family, career as a therapist, etc.) and truly feels blessed to have this remarkable rebirth.

And what a rebirth it was as when she chose to upload her songs from this EP to the site, she never expected more positive things will come out of it.

Here is the wonderful email she sent us:

"Just wanted to provide positive feedback to the Music Xray team. Two of my submissions were selected on the same day (2 for 2) a week ago by Stafford FM Radio and WHOMAG. The process was simple and the music professionals were very helpful and provided good guidance and feedback as well as follow up. Thank you for the continued opportunities. Your service has truly been an asset for me as I journey along as an indie artist. Keep up the great work!" - Kenya

Happy for you Kenya and glad that we were instrumental in a way to make this musical journey of yours a positive one. And you can always count on us to think of better ways to improve our service. This is our commitment to you and to all of our artists on the site.

Jazz and R&B Submission for Online Radio

Opportunity: http://www.musicxray.com/profiles/2850

Looking for Jazz and R&B Independent Artists with the right talent that can be aired on a family online radio station.

I run an online radio station called The Quietside Network. My station plays jazz, r&b, and from time to time rock. The reason that I started the station was that I got tired of listening to the normal radio station either in the car or in the house and hearing more talking than music. So I came up with the idea of a online radio station that plays more music and less talking. Hence the name The Quietside Network. Currently I have listeners from South America, France, and England, just to name a few places where people have tuned-in. One of the individual that is being aired on my station is Chuck Eaton, from the Light album.
