Kesington Kross To Join Kat Dahlia On East Coast Winter Tour


NEW YORK, Feb. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Retro-future, singer-songwriter Kesington Kross will support label mate Kat Dahlia on her upcoming East Coast tour, starting February 17 at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia.


The jaunt hits nine major markets, allowing audiences to experience the singer, songwriter, and producer in an intimate setting as he brings the music from his debut Audio Justice EP to life on stage. The video for his first single "Gimme Your Love" is set to premiere February 18th on VEVO.

Since its release, Audio Justice has drummed up unanimous praise from top tastemakers for its astonishing amalgam of modern alternative R&B, industrial soul, hypnotic synths, and booming futurist hum.  Here's just a taste of what the critics have to say:

The Fader: "Audio Justice unapologetically goes left, enjoying the slick guitars and earnest nastiness of '80s heroes like Rick James and Prince."

VIBE: "If you've got any type of soul living inside of your skin, KES' genre-bending new EP Audio Justice will become a fixture in your iTunes. Press play and thank us later."

MTV: "TRIPLE THREAT ALERT! While every track on Audio Justice is equally stellar, there are a few undeniable standouts. Like, we're talking songs that are drop-what-you're-doing AWESOME."

The Singersroom: "Newcomer KES is yearning for attention and after listening to his debut offering, Audio Justice, we can categorically say he deserves it." "You want a peek at the future? Take one listen to KES. R&B may never be the same. Meet its new leader…"

Still, hearing is really believing.  You can enter the world of Kesington Kross now as he's streaming Audio Justice in its entirety on his official Soundcloud page. Evoking 80s soundscapes that wouldn't be out of place in a Michael Mann film, his dynamic voice extends from a transfixing falsetto into smooth crooning. It's as nocturnal as it is sexy, echoing the sound of the night. For a quick look, listen to the single "Gimme Your Love" here.

Born in Orange County, CA, Kesington's mother moved the family to Compton following a setback. Although the budding musician adjusted quickly to his new surroundings, he never forgot witnessing culture disparity, which influences his songwriting. Drawing from David Bowie, Depeche Mode, Phil Collins, and Prince, he creates a sound that's all his own. Audio Justice is his first musical statement.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
In today's enterprise, digital transformation represents organizational change even more so than technology change, as customer preferences and behavior drive end-to-end transformation across lines of business as well as IT. To capitalize on the ubiquitous disruption driving this transformation, companies must be able to innovate at an increasingly rapid pace. Traditional approaches for driving innovation are now woefully inadequate for keeping up with the breadth of disruption and change facin...
