Kenny Lattimore first found his love of music while living in Washington D.C. He met Chaka Khan when he was just eight years old and was also heavily influenced by the sounds of Earth, Wind and Fire and Arethra Franklin. He studied classical music in high school and learned to sight read. While attending Howard University to study architecture, Kenny joined a group called Maniquin with whom he released one album in 1989.
In an effort to start a solo career, Kenny moved to New York in 1990. He started as a writer, getting songs recorded by Glenn Jones and Jon Lucien. In 1996, Kenny signed with Columbia Records. The album was released in 1996 and had moderate success, going gold. The single 'For you' made it to number 6 on the R&B charts. While the album had only moderate commercial success, it was critically acclaimed, earning Kenny a nomination for Best Male R&B Artist at the Grammys.
In 1998, he put out his second album From the Soul of Man. The album had similar success as his debut. While its singles did not perform as well on the charts, the album demonstrated Kenny's array of talents as he penned many of the songs and did a great deal of production.
Kenny moved to Artista Records in 2001 where he released his album Weekend. Following the release of his album, Kenny Lattimore secretly got married to singer Chante Moore and formed a duo. Together they released the album Things That Lovers Do and Uncovered. Kenny is currently working on another solo project.
