“It Was Love”
Openly gay pop singer Kenyth Mogan is an extremely talented vocalist and song writer, who has just released his new single “It Was Love”, a compelling story about his first boyfriend, and young love thought to last forever…
Because of his captivating voice and emotional delivery, Get Out just had to find out a little about the boy behind the lyrics.
How long have you been in the entertainment industry?
I got my start 2002 where I was cast as an extra in the Polish Brother’s film “Northfork” which shot in my hometown in Montana. It was fun, but I’m a terrible actor, so it was nothing I could streamline into a career. I guess I really got my start in music in 2013 when I released my debut EP Fall Apart. It’s been an incredible journey so far and I’m very excited.
Tell me about your newest release, what was the inspiration behind it?
My newest single “It was Love” was written about my first real boyfriend. We were in high school and thought we were going to last forever, but like a lot of first relationships, it didn’t. We did reconnect in college, but the magic was gone. We did remain friends, but sadly he passed away in 2008.
Do you plan a tour in support of the release?
There’s not a tour planned, but I am trying to get placements for the song. One of my goals is to get a song in a show like “Teen Wolf” or “The Magicians”. They’re two of my favorite shows.
What are your musical influences?
I grew up a huge fan of the singer Tiffany. She’s been one of my idols since I was five. As far as contemporary artist go, Alexz Johnson is a huge influence as well as Steve Grand and Bonnie McKee. I’m also grew up as a huge fan of the Jem cartoon, so Samantha Newark and Britta Phillips were huge infulences as well They’re both amazing singer songwriters and two of the sweetest people I’ve ever met.
Where can someone find the song?
You can find the single on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, and all the other usual suspects as far as online sales go.
What’s next for you as far as projects?
I’ve just finished recording my sophomore EP Love which comes out in April. I’m very proud of this EP as I’ve co-written every song on the album except one, “If Love is Blind” which was written by Steven McClintock and Tim James who wrote Tiffany’s “All This Time”.
Anything else that you would like to promote?
I’m excited to announce that I’m also co-writing the debut EP for Mya Taylor (Tangerine) with my producer Wildcard. Our first song “Real Me” will be featured in her new film “Viva Diva” which will be out towards the end of the year. 2016 is going to be a busy year!
