Vol. 14 - Remain Invisible

Bio

Kenny James is a multi-instrument musician and producer from Chicago, IL, currently residing in the suburbs of Los Angeles, CA. His smooth delivery and rich sound give his music a familiar blend of up tempo beat and groovy vibe. Growing up, his father and mother were heavily involved in music. His father, Bob James, is one of Chicago’s foremost slide-bone players and accomplished acapella gospel singers. Carolyn James, Kenny’s mother, also a singer and cellist. Thomas “Fats” Waller, the accomplished jazz pianist, composer and singer is said to be a distant cousin. 

While bass is Kenny’s preferred instrument, he also excels at drums and keys. Aside from playing bass, Kenny is a producer under the moniker, Invisiblemann, producing music from Pop, Rock, Electronic, Jazz and R&B. He has produced 14 albums to-date of his own music, playing majority of the instruments and composing all the songs. Kenny joined Plugged Music Group as a producer in 1996, and their first big break came that same year when H-Gun Productions, famous for Public Enemy and Anthrax’s video, “Bring the Noise,” approached Kenny and his partner, Jim Colao, to do the music for the MTV Movie Awards. This led to commercial gigs as diverse as Comedy Central, Levi’s, and Cartoon Network. They also attracted a wide range of artists from all over the world. Additionally, Kenny has provided music for documentary films such as the controversial “In a Diamond’s Shadow,” which can be seen on the Plugged Music site. In addition as a producer, Kenny is a ghost writer for several up and coming artists in Asia and Europe.

While COVID-19 continues to bring uncertainty to everyone's future, Kenny will carry on playing and producing music he loves. His next album will be coming out in the first quarter of 2022! He is also working on a special signature bass in partnership with Leones Guitars & Basses. Stay tuned!

Invisiblemann Vol 14 – Remain Invisible, was written and produced during a most challenging year that included a worldwide pandemic and racial unrest. The album was critically acclaimed and written up in Bass Magazine, Bass Musician Magazine and No Treble. The first song on the album, Feeling What I’m Feeling, was made into a music video and received wide praise. The nine-song collection features the Invisiblemann's signature blend of R&B, soul, chill out down tempo, and rock with an extra edge on the hard funk. Whether it’s with fingerstyle or thick slap tones, Invisiblemann creates grooves that will put you into a trance.

Kenny James

While recuperating from a botched knee surgery, music continues to flow through Kenny. There were many highs and lows but Kenny's focus never wavered. He continued to create music in his head and when he had the chance to record, he did. This is the culmination of many months of sweat and tears, a collection of chilled out funky grooves with hints of soul.
