- Big Fat Liar, out as a digital single on 16th January 2012, is the first taste of Kinny’s stunning second solo album, Cant Kill A Dame With Soul, which follows in February. An opera chanteuse turned singer-songwriter, Kinny’s lifelong passion for reggae, jazz and soul intertwines with her classical training for a truly unique and potent style.
Kinny’s captivating power and range of vocal expression, her diverse cultural heritage (a mix of Jamaican, Native Canadian and Swedish), and the twists and turns her life has taken all feed into the music. This is a richly emotive sound that never shies away from a dancefloor-filling groove or a stream-of-consciousness lyrical flow. The warm, immersive and soulful soundscape created by Norwegian producer/musician duo Souldrop (who also produced two tracks on her first album) provides the perfect cocoon for Kinny’s crystal-edged voice, the eclectic sonic palette ranging organically from big bassy beats and keys to acoustic instrumentation and percussion.
Announcing Kinny’s emphatic return with a big fat beat, Big Fat Liar exemplifies her more fiery and dancefloor-orientated side, and is certain to soundtrack many a night out. Bonus tracks come in the form of the more languid and laid-back groove of album track You From This Sting and an exclusive unplugged version of Water For Chocolate - the original, which appeared on her debut solo album 'Idle Forest Of Chit Chat', was the first track she ever made with Souldrop, planting the seeds for the flourishing creative partnership you hear on the new record.
