Kenton Lee

Bio

Kenton Lee is a South African award winning producer, guitarist and singer and songwriter. He was born in Kwa-Zulu Natal and raised on the coastlines of Durban. Playing in church bands from a very tender age, he honed his musical craft at Natal Technikon, where he studied music for a year and then relocated to Johannesburg where he worked with bands and artists such as Dawnay, Lira, Sasha-Lee Davids, Lloyd Cele, and Denim amongst others. Close to two decades in the music business and a brief stint in broadcast working as a runner for Isidingo, Kenton Lee has used this time to educate, train, rehearse and build his craft.

Over the past year Kenton has debuted as a solo artist, releasing 3 songs consecutively. Echo, MaLamborghini feat. Mo-T (Micasa) and Alice, received fair radio and TV airplay considering the difficult climate to market in. Nevertheless, he has used his time to work through a beautiful body of work throughout the lockdown period. It is a story that began in Durban, South Africa more than 20 years ago. It was during the student days where jamming and rehearsing at the Bat Centre was more than just the after school norm. It was the culture that ultimately groomed Kenton to then travel to Johannesburg where he released albums with groups and worked with multi-platinum selling artists such as Lira. After traveling the globe playing on live stages, having music rise on popular South African charts with music videos on popular TV channels, Kenton decided to return to SA to complete the EP. At the very beginning of the releases and performances is when the pandemic kicked in and Kenton had to relocate to Durban. Two years later, he set up studio, got married, had a baby girl and completed the project. The sound is somewhat eclectic with influences from Jazz to Dance and RnB. It's an Urban four to the floor sound that's quite artsy, however, please bring your dancing shoes. 'I chose the Bat Centre to launch this live listening session because this is where it all began. I'm excited to tell my story. I'm excited to be on the stage where my hero's once played.'
