Kenny Rojas was initiated at an early age into the world of music via strong familial ties – his father was an established Latin musician and would play guitar and sing Latin songs at family gatherings and parties when Kenny was a young boy. This early paternal childhood influence infected Kenny’s subconscious and instilled a deep passion for composing and performing music that perpetuates within his veins – the blood-ties of his father’s musical talents pumping incessantly, ecstatically to fuel his fingers’ graceful art.
Growing up in Bayville, NJ, Kenny’s childhood and teenage years were heavily impacted by these magnetic familial bonds. Passing so much of the time of his youth among his parents, uncles, and cousins, many of whom were talented musicians themselves, served to solidify a collective consciousness of Kenny’s entire familial history within his soul that catalyzed and epitomized the driving force behind his music. Thus it is that Kenny feels as though it is his living relatives, as well as the deceased relatives of his familial tree, that guide his hands and heart to create his beautiful and distinct music – as though an orchestra of ancestral ghosts conducts his soul’s musical jubilations.
Determined to cement his family’s name within the music industry, and thus remunerate the gift of musical talent passed down to him from generations, Kenny consistently and whole-heartedly thrusts himself forward towards further and further augmentation and implementation of musical knowledge and expertise. His music tells a wondrous story – a story that reflects and reveres the images of his ancestors, smiling and dancing euphorically as they celebrate the music they helped create.
