Giveaway: Win a Samsung Galaxy 8 gig Tablet From Kentrell/Kontrol Mag

New artists are as ubiquitous as street signs. They come, they go, we sometimes barely notice. However, once in a musical generation, a handful of artists emerge and command certain levels of attention. We here at Kontrol Mag believe that Kentrell, a dynamic and poised singer out of the Midwest, is one of them.
The hardworking singer/songwriter is not only gearing up for a live show on March 6th, in his home of Chicago. But he just put the finishing touches on some new music. And he’s chosen us to showcase it to the world.
The new EP simply titled “The Gold Edition” has some truly amazing cuts that’s short of musical brilliance. I dare anyone to listen to “Fun” and not crack a smile and just feel happy.

Kentrell is an incredible artist out of the Midwest. His musical influences are impressively cultivated and his sound is the best modern-day interpretation of what music used to me. The live instrumentation, the well thought out lyrics. We can’t say enough about this soon–to–be-discovered-star.
