C-rich & Kenzie – New kids on the block

first_img“C-rich and Kenzie” was founded but two young men who have a passion for music and who fell they could transform the musical landscape of the local music fraternity.Twenty-year-old Chardon Antoine Richardson, also known as “C-Rich” and 22-year-old Shaquille Gordon Mckenzie, called “Kenzie” chose the moniker “C-Rich & Kenzie” as they embark on their musical careers together.They both grew up in Georgetown. It all stared around June last when Mckenzie was writing a song which required a rapper. Immediately he started asking around until a producer recommended Richardson.At that time, he was not sure who Richardson was and as such, jumped on Facebook and searched for the young man. In a flash, he realised he knew the person but was unaware he was so talented.Mckenzie contacted Richardson and the collabortion started after the young rapper sent him a demo of his work. In an instance, they agreed that they should work together.In a matter of weeks, Kenzie sent the rapper a new piece he was working on and it instantly set off a spark. For the first time, after weeks of being in contact, the duo met and put the track together.The duo’s focus is mostly on mixing R&B with a touch of Hip-Hop, but intends to explore other genres of music. The due however, continues to promote their skills and was recently part of an ‘open mic’ night at Indulgence Bar.Although it was a small gig, it gave them the much needed exposure and some practice since it was their first time performing together. They have been working on other songs to bring to the table with the aim of attracting positive responses from spectators.This, they believe, can work as a motivator to do more and record more music but more so, to secure more gigs.Meanwhile, inspired by family, friends and artistes such as Drake, Chris Brown, Bryson Tiller, Kendrick Lamar and a few others, the duo is optimistic that in a few years from now, they will be performing at hundreds of shows, tours, and promotions; gained millions and have lots of fans.When they have accomplished a portion of their set goals, they intend to reflect on their past as they move forward in the future.The duo claims that their hit single “All I Want”, which is available on YouTube and all popular music platforms, being their first release, is not the first song they wrote together.
