‘Feeling Today’ is an infectious track featuring electronic soundscapes, funk-filled basslines, and soulful vocals, evoking a sense of optimism.
Kenny Zhao has previously landed spots on Spotify’s “Fresh Finds” and “Summer Heat” playlists, as well as having performed at some of Los Angeles most prestigious venues.
Zhao is the proof of concept and pop moniker of producer and singer Kenny Zhao. Raised in the suburbs of Atlanta by Chinese immigrants, Kenny studied classical piano and composition before moving to Los Angeles. While his sound is constantly evolving, the path taken is always a danceable one, borrowing cues from the likes of Chairlift, Kaytranada, Washed Out, and James Blake.
After realizing there are so few Asian American artists out there, Zhao was driven by the desire to challenge himself to push past the mental and cultural barriers that have hindered his creativity in the past while inspiring others in this process. “I view being an artist as a way of amplifying my own approach to the Asian-American experience, in hopes that it may work for others struggling with the same problems”, reveals Zhao.
