AVERY WILSON the New Haven, Connecticut, native spent his entire life working towards this moment. Encouraged by his family, he went from singing at McDonald’s every Wednesday to dropping a series of independent releases, culminating with On Top of the World in 2012. A year later, music legend Clive Davis personally signed him. Throughout 2015, he made headlines, performing at the BET Awards, and dropping “Change My Mind” (feat. Migos). The latter impressively racked up 7.7 million Spotify streams and cemented a fervent fan base around him. Going independent, he maintained his momentum on 2018’s FYI EP before dropping the 8:34 EP in 2019. The latter received acclaim from Rap-Up, Soul Bounce, and more right out of the gate. Along the way, he continued to cross paths with super producers and songwriters, Grammy Award-winning Claude Kelly, Damon Thomas and James Fauntleroy to work on his upcoming music he will be releasing in 2023.
At just 21 years old, Kenya Vaun is a breath of fresh air in the modern music landscape. With her raspy vocals and emotionally charged lyrics, the Philadelphia native has captivated audiences with a sound that's both nostalgic and refreshingly new. In a time where authenticity is a rare commodity, Kenya Vaun has managed to create a sonic safe space that harks back to the greats of R&B, while still forging her own unique path. Today, Kenya Vaun stands on the cusp of a new chapter in her musical journey. In a lively and exciting tête-à-tête, I sat down with the ‘young, gifted and black’ rising star to delve into her blossoming music career, explore the musical influences that define her unique sound, the creative process that fuels her artistry, and the thrilling projects on her horizon.
