FDMRX interviewed Tondrae Kemp, the “rennaissance soul man in digital world,” a soul singer, thinker, a free-spirit, who makes “the personal universal.” His latest album, Sun Money (through Kwality Records) has been described as “breezy, ambitious and fresh” by critics. Originally from New Orleans, Tondrae attended the University of New Orleans an studied film, which plays into his own music videos and plans for a video narrative to accompany is upcoming EP. He’s since moved to New York and been steadily making moves and experimenting beyond the soul genre. Previously featured on the Red Bull Sound Selects Stage alongside virtuoso bassist Thundercat, Tondrae channels music that is both nostalgic and fresh, blurring the lines between soul, reggae, hip-hop, and electronic music.
Tondrae Kemp live in-studio performance and interview at BRIC. B-Side, Brooklyn Independent Media's live in-studio music series, features performances from emerging and established musicians on Thursday evenings.
