Keni Burke

I grew up in the era of the true soul singer and the real deal R&B musicians. Keni Burke happens to be one of those singer musicians. Keni Burke’s music is the kind of music you would hear back in at the day. You would go to a party or club and just dance and have fun with your peeps. This 59 year old singer, songwriter, record producer, pianist, keyboardist and bass guitarist used to be a member of the Five Stairsteps a group from Chicago, Illinois. The groups biggest hit was and still one of my all-time favorite songs "O-o-h Child". In 1977, he released his self-titled debut album, which featured the songs "Keep on Singing", "Shuffle", and "From Me to You". This talented artist was so underrated. Keni Burke has put his skills as a guitarist and bassist to work. He has played with some major artist of our time like, Sly & the Family Stone, Natalie Cole, Billy Preston, Terry Callier, Curtis Mayfield, Bill Withers, Dusty Springfield, Diana Ross, and Gladys Knight. I like Keni Burke’s music it is feel good music it has a mix of R&B, soul, funk, jazz, Smooth Jazz. Some songs that are going on my playlist are “Risin' To The Top”, “Never Stop Loving Me”, “Who Do You Love”, “From Us to You and One Minute More”. Tune into Streetwise Radio's Soul City and listen Keni Burke songs. You can also listen to Streetwise Radio on Gilroy Radio, Pandora, and iTunes, MyGen365, Live365 and Athena365.
