CeCe Teneal & Soul Kamotion bring new meaning to the term Blues Funk Fusion. For more than 15 years, they have performed collectively, and they take each opportunity given to feed the live music famine of the world.
This band can’t be put in a box! Whether you call it funk, soul, blues, rock, roots or jam-band, Soul Kamotion, puts ALL the labels to the side. Each member is afforded the freedom to grow, learn, and most importantly take risks. Comprised of founders Chris Baptiste (Keys & MD), Terrell Kimble (Bass), and CeCe Teneal (Lead Vocals), Soul Kamotion provides an incredible musical experience that transcends cultural and generational barriers.
Critics and fans have characterized the SK lead singer, CeCe Teneal, as “a musical force to be reckoned with”. Her longevity and achievements in the industry over the past decade are certainly a testament to that view. This country girl possesses a powerful voice intertwined with a passion and energy that is second to none. Her own original sound has attracted the attention of fans across the globe, and her first music video, “Eleanor Rigby” was exclusively premiered on the Huffington Post. She has been nominated for 3 Independent Music Awards and claimed their title for 2011 Best Gospel Song (“I Heard you Prayin”) and Best R&B Album. Her other accolades include the 2015 Touch the Mic “Muse” Award, Best Female Singer at the 2009-2010 Orlando Hip-Hop Awards.
When all of the musical elements are aligned, the end product is a feeling that is absolutely unexplainable. It catapults you to a place where you simply can’t hold back. Baptiste says it best, “We only have one gear. We are programmed to give each person the same energy, no matter where we are, no matter how many people are in the room.” Keeping God first, CeCe Teneal & Soul Kamotion are humbled to serve because they truly believe that whether there are 5 or 5,000 listeners in the audience, each one deserves an unforgettable, stellar performance.
In October 2017, Soul Kamotion recorded their first collective album, which was released on June 22, 2018.
