Kemp's previous release, "Sometimes in Bad Weather", draws upon his diverse background and creative influences. The album is a thoughtful tapestry exploring the intersection of American roots music, jazz, and African folk influences; it features the acclaimed "If Loneliness was Black", a piece Kemp composed and performed with the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. As an actor, Kemp has performed in television, film, and on stage. His more recent work includes Mirimax's "Next Stop Wonderland" and Steven Spielberg's "Amistad".

When Kemp isn't busy writing songs or performing, he's working with kids as a teacher of over 20 years and published children's author. Kemp's upcoming album, entitled Edenton, looks back to Kemp's North Carolina roots and features the backing vocals of the Holmes Brothers. Read more on Last.fm.
