Introducing: SOUTHERN SILK DUO
Posted in Arts & Entertainment
Asheville Urban News staff reports:
Southern Silk is a husband-and-wife duo whose interpretive jazz and contemporary pop music offers a memorable musical journey through the smooth sounds of favorite songs and performers. Tony Kemp likes to cover such balladeers as Nat King Cole, James Taylor, George Benson, Stevie Wonder, and Elvis Presley while Joanne’s voice can recall the silky, sultry voices of Billie Holiday, Dionne Warwick, Roberta Flack, and Gladys Knight.
Through live ... performances and recordings, they reach a broad fan base with audiences ranging over every ethnic and racial background. “Babies to 105 five years old are the core of our audience,” says Joann, “but younger people still get happy and dance!” The pair
has proved through years of performing that “music should make you feel good, want to dance, want to love, want to relax, and enjoy some awesome entertainment”. This is an obvious fact. Southern Silk has been performing together professionally
for nearly two decades. Their understanding of song, their deliverance, and their versatility is amazing. Southern Silk Duo, Tony and Joann Kemp, have captured the essence of
the song. Southern Silk has been performing together professionally for nearly two decades. Their understanding of song, their deliverance, and their versatility is amazing.
Truly creative, artistic, and talented. 2 married people with a phenomenal presence, who sing from the soul and heart with love. They actually “ know” each other and they make it fun. When not singing, they still hold your attention. They leave you with a new, but somehow very familiar experience of happiness and love, and even peace.
Southern Silk also has tremendous songwriting gifts experience on three original sound tracks on their CD, which is a sampling of their originals and three remakes that are audience favorites.
Southern Silk is a duo that is positioned to explode on the awaiting and reawakening soul music market to recapture the almost forgotten, essence of silky soul.
Since the loss of many great R&B greats, there has been a gaping hole in the smooth & silky sounds of R&B. Until Now!
It has now returned.

We supply our own sound equipment and provide excellent references. We also consult,
collaborate, write, have worked and been featured on many artists work in background vocals
and guitar. We both agree that working in the studio is a much different energy and a very
pleasant experience. In any setting, there’s always a new discovery or lesson. Whatever the
outcome, we pray for the most positive and we always contribute our best to make sure it does.
We had 2 songs released by jazz artist Maysa Leak in Nov. 2012. Motions of Love, the title
song, went to # 1 on jazz charts, # 8 on R& ... ;B and to # 1 in the UK.
