Overview

Detroiter Kem Owens landed a five-album deal with Motown, and it's plain to see in the talent on display throughout his debut, Kemistry, why the label was attracted to him. Another reason why he was snapped up has to be for the lack of development that talent requires -- here, he arrives as fully formed as a label can hope for. Not only does Kem write, arrange, and produce all of his material, but he plays keyboards and also sings in a comforting, non-flashy manner. He isn't anxious to let you know he has a four-octave range. In fact, he's at the top of his game when his words of devotion and faith are gently wrapped around skeletal and hushed arrangements. He knows his strengths and never out-steps his boundaries, delivering a consistent, mature cross of R&B and jazz.

when I first heard the song Love Calls I was entranced; I Bought the CD because of that song. Since that time I have sent a copy of the CD to my (future) husband, and he too has informed me of how much the artist (Kem) has moved him with his insightful words..thank you Kem for making people listen to your words and believe in love again.

I've already left 1 review, but I just got back from Kem's concert at the Hyatt in Crystal City and I felt the need to share my thoughts with other listeners. The man is just incredible. He performs with such intense style, grace, and passion. If you get the chance to see him live, you're in for a real treat.

kem is a breath of fresh air he brings back the melodic sounds of al. he has lyrics that sooths you to chill with a sexy lady and drink some vino on a sunday jazz brunch. The cat got it going on. if the radio stations do their job he will get a grammy for sure. watch him blow up

I first heard this CD Memorial Day weekend in a friend's car, and purchased it as soon as I got home. I haven't been able to stop listening to it since. While all of the tracks are outstanding, track #3 is the one! I've told all my friends to check out the CD. This one is permanently in Disk 5 of my car's CD changer. And it's loaded onto my computer.

This is my favorite CD in the entire world right now. I've been hooked on it every since I came back from JAMAICA, where I fell in love. I sent my sweetie a copy and #6 Love Calls is our song. This CD gets me through my trials and tribulations. Every woman atleast should own one. He is amazing! I Luv him!

...can express what this talented man can make you feel. I can only say "listen". I've had the CD for about 4 days now and I can't stop listening to it. It takes me to a place that I don't want to ever leave. Get the CD. Get 2. One for the house and one for the car. You won't regret it.

I would say that Kemistry is a very good first attempt. Although the artist doesn't possess a very unique style, he sings his songs without the elaborate flourishes that are a staple of music currently playing on the airwaves. At times he sounds a lot like Al Jurreau, yet he seems to make the songs feel as if they have that "home smoked ham" sensation. Listen to this when reading a book for a very pleasant experience.

I was introduced to Kemistry's CD by one of coworkers and she almost had to file a civil law suite to get her CD back from me. After the first few cords / words from Kemistry, I just could not let go. I have been playing his CD over & over again.

I have purchased 7 Cds to pass around. I have one in my car and one in my home! I am trying to get information on KEM. I would like to get him to do a performance. I suggest #1,3,5 and 6-o.k. all of it. Kem has been kept quiet long enough! Get the word out! KEM deserves more than 5 stars!!!!

Not only is this CD sensual, but it's spiritual. My husband and I can't get enough of it. Keep it coming Kem.

I have had this CD for months and everyone that I have passed the word on to has told me how much they enjoyed it also. This is a rare gem (Kem)....you don't get CD's today that you just put in and play....He did it.

I HAD NEVER HEARD OF THIS ARTIST BEFORE SCANNING THE WEB TO FIND SOME NEW TUNES. I HEARD THE FIRST COUPLE OF TRACKS AND WENT OUT TO PURCHASE IT THAT SAME DAY. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS ALBUM!!! FAVORITES INCLUDE: MATTER OF TIME, I'M MISSIN' YOUR LOVE, AND SAY...IF YOU DON'T HAVE IT, PICK IT UP!

This R&B Jazz mix is Smoothing, Soothing, Relaxing, Makes you want to bath with only candlelight or dance in the mirror. I have had 3 CDs for a few months now, one at home, one in the car, and one at work. It truly is addictive. I am anxioiusly awaiting a KEM, KEMISTRY concert.

Thank you Motown for bringing Kem to my ears and heart. His voice and style reach out to move the soul and every cut is wonderful. He is the best smooth jazz vocalist I have heard since Will Downing. I can't wait unitl his next release.

This is the best CD I have heard in a long time. The lyrics and melodies kept me captivated the first time I heard them, and I have yet to grow tired of listening since. I can't wait for his next CD!

This music will send chills down your spine. It is full of so much emotion. It's jazzy, sexy, and spiritual. From the vocalist to the musicians it's fantastic. You will want to listen to this over and over again...
