Kenne, pronounced "Kenny", is a native of Brooklyn, New York, currently residing in South Florida. Born to a Japanese father and an American mother, Kenne knew from an early age that he wanted to be a performer. As a child, and later as a teenager, it was Kenne's love of performing that landed him acting and singing roles on Off- Broadway and in regional theatre productions, national tours of Broadway hits, feature films (both studio and indie projects), TV commercials. jingles and print ads. Now an adult, Kenne has decided to focus his attention to his first loves: Singing and songwriting.

It was through an unsolicited demo tape that Kenne first caught the attention of Frankfurt, Germany-based dance music producer, Doug Laurent, who has received critical acclaim for producing and remixing international dance acts, such as Culture Beat, La Bouche, Tina Harris of Sweetbox, and Sash! Kenne has written several songs with Doug Laurent, including the underground club hit, "You Can Dance" which was released in early 2002. The song charted at #3 on the Flamingo Record Pool Charts, and reached top 10 on the Long Island Record Pool Chart. In addition, "You Can Dance" appeared on several compilation discs throught Europe and Asia, and was licensed to DMX music where it was featured in over 100 Abercrombie & Fitch retail stores nationwide. In a further honing of his songwriting skills, Kenne has also co-written and recorded the song, "Touched By Love" along with three other tracks with former PWL (London) staff producer extraordinaire, Phil Harding. (Harding has produced songs in the past for Rick Astley, Kylie Minogue and East 17). These songs will either appear on Kenne's debut album or be pitched to other artists.

Currently, Kenne recorded a cover version of New Order's "True Faith" as well as his own original composition, entitled, "This Is Your Night." Kenne's cover of "True Faith" has been enjoying club and radio success in The U.K. and has held the coveted title of "CHOON OF THE WEEK" for 2 consecutive weeks on 96.3FM, Radio Aire (Leeds), in November of 2003. In addition, the song has been featured yet again in every Abercrombie & Fitch clothing store for the entire month of January 2004, while Kenne's original composition, "THIS IS YOUR NIGHT" was featured for the month of March 2004. Future projects for Kenne include the release of his fourth single entitled "EVERYBODY HAPPY" along with video project for the song, as well as a video for Kenne's current single, "TRUE FAITH." Other projects in the works include Kenne's dream of recording a song in French, exclusively for the French market.
