Born in Kingston on February 11th 1980 with the natural gift of singing, Kenroy Dacosta Carney (a.k.a. Kenne Blessin) began his musical journey…

The crew worked and performed with many well-known artists including ‘Anthony B’, ‘Everton Blender’, ‘Chrisinti’, ‘Norris Man’ & ‘Admiral Bailey’ – they also got to work in some top studios including ... Arrows, Grafton, Music Works, Penthouse, Sly n Robbie amongst others.
While Kenne was raised in (Yallahs) St. Thomas, Jamaica, he actually migrated to Antigua in 1999 and has been a resident there ever since. It was there that Kenne won a karaoke competition, and then went on to win the Gem FM ‘Caribbean Star Search’ which introduced him to Soca music. Kenne recorded his 1st groovy tune ‘My Love’ in Barbados, produced by Da Bhann. The Band did a few tour together to various Islands and Continents.
