Ke’Shay Love is an Oakland girl who just plain ol’ loves to sing. Bigger than her love for singing is her love of performing & a full blown entertainer she is. Her foundation, like many of the greats, is rooted in the church; stirring up the spirit with her booming voice. During adolescence, Ke’Shay broke off into dance, putting her sincere passion on pause. Fortunately, when you’re absolutely born to do something, you can never stay on pause for too long.
On her own as a woman, Ke’Shay Love began hanging around vocalists who really encouraged her to share her gifts. She started doing background vocals for local bands around the city & people would often ask “Why aren’t you doing your own stuff???” She attributes her stint in background singing to a lack of confidence in her talent. With persistence & the support of her circle however, Ke’Shay Love got in the studio & recorded; eventually leaving the background game for good & breaking out as a star. In 2008, she released an EP entitled ‘Finally‘, which included the single of the same name & tracks like “Living My Life” & “I’m Not Feeling You“.
The Ke’Shay Love sound is a combination of the soul of R&B with the energy of Pop. For her, its less about the song & more about the show & just one taste of her showmanship affirms her title as an entertainer. She’s also a self proclaimed promoter, who promotes the hell out of herself. She credits her networking with the success of her career, which has allowed her opportunities to do things like open up for Jon B & Dwele.
Her new album, ‘My Story‘, is set to be released at the end of the year. It’s entitled ‘My Story‘ because it’s literally a culmination of her life experiences, but don’t expect to hear any sad male bashing songs. The majority of her songs are about how to love on a man rather than reject him. Her music is all about the empowerment of women & teaching them to find the lesson in every love, in every experience. You can stream her new single “Breathless” below which you can cop on iTunes!!!
