Congrats are in order for L Renee on signing a recording contract with Kemistry Records, the independent label owned by Motown Recording Artist, KEM! L Renee, who regularly performs with KEM as a background vocalist and performance duettist, is the first artist signed to his label. GLOW, her first album on the Kemistry Records label, is scheduled for release in 2015.

“It’s a dream come true to be signed to a record label owned by such an accomplished artist as KEM,” said L Renee. “His influence and mentorship as an artist and a performer is invaluable, and I’m thankful and honored to have the chance to work with him and his team.”

This is pretty cool for a number of reasons, for me personally because I actually gave her, her first radio interview back in 2010. Watch here.

Prior to signing with the Motown label in 2001, KEM started his Kemistry Records label as a vehicle to produce and distribute his own music.

“Running a record label was not something I had interest in, and I had no intention of signing anyone to Kemistry Records…until I met L Renee,” said KEM. “She has one of those special voices, and has an abundance of natural talent and ability as an R&B vocalist. She has the talent to become one of the best female R&B singers of our time. I believe in her so much that I added her first single, “Don’t Say Goodbye,” to the Deluxe edition of my newest album, PROMISE TO LOVE.”

This November, L Renee will perform as the opening act on KEM’s eight-city “Promise To Love Tour – Part 1” with special guest, Joe. The tour begins on November 14 at Ft. Lauderdale’s Broward Center. Tickets are on sale today at
