Music Review

Album: Back To Me - Single
Label: Self-Released

In this day and age it isn’t hard to find country music with a healthy dose of rock influences on your radio dial. For Chicago native Kenny Charles, fusing together his wide range of influences to put together a rocking, modern, country based song seems to just simply come easy for him as he proves on his latest single “Back To Me.” His simple strumming on the guitar riff that brings you into the song and continues throughout the verses takes a backseat to his vocals and allows his lyric to shine through as he sings about the love that he wanted to have by his side forever that has gotten away from him. However, what Kenny has the tremendous ability to do both vocally and musically, as he has displayed on his previous efforts, is to at the perfect moments hammer home the lyrics and kick things up a notch as he does on this song rolling into the chorus as he sings about giving her that little reminder about how important she is to his l ife if he could bring her on back to his side. The lyrics are very well written and relatable for anyone that has dared to play the game of love and yes, for those of you wondering, Charles brings everything full circle with his lyrics to give this one a happy ending and the narrator finds the lost love and gets his second chance. With the simple enough music that drives to the powerfully delivered chorus, wrapped around a great musical bridge towards the end of the song, Charles has easily written one of his most solid efforts as a songwriter thus far. If you are a fan of the modern style of country music then this is certainly a song you’ll want to check out.

"Kenny Charles Review"


If Illinois native Kenny Charles was on a mission to prove that the Chicago area has the ability produce great, quality, modern country music then he has more than succeeded with his debut album "Days Like This." Charles grabs you right away with his rock-fused country on album opener "Don't Give Up," the inspirational song about making it through the hard times life throws at us. His rock background shines through on the guitar work on songs like "In The House That We Once Lived" and "Take Me Away" while he lets his country influence shine on the title track "Days Like These," the wonderfully written "Running To Me," and album closer "Missing You," which has been dedicated to his sister that passed away. His lyrics grab you with relatable thoughts and stories and combined with his choruses that will have you singing along you are in for a treat when you hit play. A lot of artists are walking that thin line between what is country and rock these days and Charles perfectly combines all aspects of these influences to create a perfect album that will work right along side many of today's young country acts and by the time you finish listening to this album, you will be picking up your phone to call your local radio stations and ask for more Kenny Charles.
