*“We’ve had some fun on the road starting with Charlie Wilson for 12,000 – 17,000 people. We compliment each other. This tour coming up is with my special guest Tamar Braxton,” said three-time Grammy nominated KEM about the new leg of his “Promise to Love” Tour launching in Los Angeles November 6, 2015.at the Microsoft Theater (formerly Nokia Theatre) “You’re going to see me in an intimate setting, a full show of bells and whistles. You will see me in a new light. I prefer an intimate setting. The nuance is what we do. In arenas we attempt not to loose that. Big arenas there is more money but expenses are big.”
KEM’s “Promise to Love” album is his fourth studio project released in August, 2014 on his own label Kemistry distributed by Motown Records. “Promise to Love” debuted at #1 for R&B albums. The album features vocal assistance from Snoop Dogg and Ron Isley. The Nashville native, Detroit raised balladeer, has released five singles from the “Promise to Love” project that include “Saving My Love For You,” “I Believe in Love” (exclusively at Target), “Pray for Me,” ”Nobody” which was his second single that reached #1 on the Urban AC Charts, and “It’s You” the first single that reached #1 in Urban Charts as well.
‘The album is doing its thing,” the Neo-Soul, Jazz and R&B singer said about his latest project. “It diffidently keeps the lights on. It has two #1 singles ‘Its You’ and “Nobody.” It’s exciting to be going on tour.”
When I asked KEM if it’s intentional or by chance that he releases projects that are about love he said, “It is a combination of both, intentional in that we are all looking for love, to be loved, to love better. I think that’s what the world needs and can never get too much of.”
“We both have a role to play,” he said when asked but his audience. “The more energy you give the more you receive. It goes both ways.”
KEM is a platinum selling singer, songwriter and producer who’s classic hit singles include “Love Calls,” “Share My Love,” and “I Can’t Stop Loving You.” Log onto www.PromiseToLoveTour.com for dates near you or www.MusicByKem.com to learn more about KEM.
