Kenny Gourmet is the latest addition to the massive list of talented artists in the Vancouver hip hop scene.
Recording since the young age of 15, with no signs of stopping, Ken Galvez, better known as Kenny Gourmet, cites his huge influences of Kanye West, Kendrick Lamar, k-os and Big Sean. By following a prestigious philosophy, he created an unique flow, rhythm and artful wordplay into a rare sound to amalgamate with the production stylings of close friend, Jan Betsayda.
Currently finishing up a Professional Recording Arts program at The Art Institute of Vancouver, he is set to become a recording and mix engineer. As the professional studio being his second home, he promises to always provide his fans with the highest quality of music possible. Kenny defines his music as “a mix of both worlds” – with mixing multiple genres with fresh novelty sounds. His tracks always carry an organic, intuitive spontaneity that sparkles into the true essence of hip-hop, reaching all types of people, of all nations and generations.
Fresh off the press, Kenny Gourmet has recently released a collaborative, 5 track EP titled; ‘5 Star Dishes’ with Houston, Texas artist, Silantro Bleu and producer Jan Betsayda. Sonically, the vibe of the EP displays the continuity in each track as instrumented. As 5 Star Dishes could not be truly classified into solely one genre per se, it genuinely showcases the versatility and the way Kenny Gourmet could accommodate to a vast amount of listeners. Released last July, this EP fully captures the distinct and coloured sound of what Kenny Gourmet and producer, Jan Betsayda bring to the table, not only for Vancouver, but as the music industry and world as a whole! 5 Star Dishes is now available purchase on iTunes.
No stranger to the spotlight, Kenny Gourmet headlined at multiple concerts lately, such as; (Turner Wells Present: Main Street Live “Now Or Never” at Electric Owl & a self titled show at BLVD22). He has also performed at Fortune Nightclub, Gossip Nightclub and Shine Nightclub for several other events too.
Kenny Gourmet is currently in the studio producing new music for his upcoming Mixtape (tentative release next year).
