Kehinde & Jessica are singer, songwriter and producer Kehinde (pronounced Kane-Day) Azeez, and singer Jessica Gilchrist. They met in 2010 through a TV show "My Pop Diary" broadcast on Melbourne's C31 TV station. Jessica was auditioned as the bubbly blonde for a girl group put together by Kehinde as part of the TV show. However, when the other girls in the group moved inter-state Jessica continued working with Kehinde on her singing and now they have come together to make some sweet music.
"Key To Your Heart" is their first single as a duo and is a quirky pop record that fuses
guitars, synths and harmonies, underpinned by a two-step groove. It has elements of music spanning decades. From the 1960s guitar sound (courtesy of Guitar Rig 4), 80s Oberheim synth sounds and a 1950s sounding acoustic bass.
"We kind of just evolved naturally" explains Kehinde. "I found that whilst working with Jessica on some material after the girl band sort of ended, that Jessica really liked the same sort of
music that I liked. I played her some garage tracks and she really liked it straight away and I really liked that. We tried rehearsing a couple of duets and I knew then that she would be right to be a part of this project, so we started recording, it was that simple" .
"After many years of writing and producing for other artists, I felt the time was right for me to focus on recording my own material and to re-invent myself more as an artist and not just as a producer. I still love recording and producing but I want to be more in the forefront singing rather than just behind the scenes. Jessica and I really get on very well and I love the idea of our contrasting styles, sound and personalities. She's the cheeky bubbly one and I am the more suave serious type". Kehinde
Kehinde Jessica's vocal sound revolves around the blend of their vocal styles and
features, overlapping adlibs, harmonies and singing in unison producing one of the freshest sounds to come out of Australia.
