is creating music with intelligent lyrics, and a love for humanity

About

Kingdom Soldier (Lenny Deneb) is a singer-songwriter who has been described by the British music press as an exciting performer and intelligent in his writing.
His songs are the result of experiences based on his work with young people and families in crisis in the field of social science, counselling and the justice system. Having witnessed how some young people struggle with life issues such as drugs, crime, low self-esteem, religion and purpose; then it is not surprising that his songs tell stories of social upheaval, injustice and lost dreams.
A liking for the reggae genre, this artist writes and sings thought provoking songs. His critically-acclaimed album ‘Solidarity’ includes such songs as ‘Pirates’, ‘The Begging Game’, ‘Families at War’, ‘U Can’t Run Nor Hide’ and others. The lyrics of which comes at you with the velocity of an arrow shot from a bow. “Lenny Deneb's CD "Solidarity" offers a very strong reggae vibe and the grooves on this album are guaranteed to satisfy. Deneb brings a smooth and pleasant vocal style to the table with this album, and I was sold right away by his performance on track 2, "Families At War, which speaks to life, family, and modern times......He is a very gifted artist and the passion of his music comes through smoothly and solidly in the lyrics. Truthful messages are woven with precision into every verse" Charles A. Smith, The Entertainment Bank.
A founding member of fairly-well acclaimed late 70’s UK reggae band Cygnus.

Under the direction of producer John Rubie of Freedom Sounds, Cygnus also released a reggae cover version of Mcfadden and Whitehead's 'A'int No Stopping Us Now' and provided musical backing for one of Rubie's stalwart Jackie Dale.

As a believer, Kingdom Soldier’s focuses on honouring God and to use his gift of music for God’s Kingdom. Ultimately the messages in his songs are that of humanity, love, and in all the chaos, be still and know that He is God, and if you give Him control, He will help you find peace and purpose to your life.
