Quick-fire Questions: KennyHoopla

Living life in the backwoods of Wisconsin, KennyHoopla is bringing a modern twist to his music despite his rural surroundings.

Kenneth La’ron exudes a unique type of energy in his music. There’s shades of indie, punk and even a hint of hip hop. Each release is different from the previous and he isn’t allowing his music to be boxed into any particular style just yet. Going by the name KennyHoopla, he’s a product of the internet and his eclectic mix of influences coupled with the fact he lives in the backwoods of Wisconsin provides sonics that couldn’t have come from anywhere else.

Having been born in Cleveland and having some similar vocals, inevitable comparisons have been drawn Kid Cudi. However it doesn’t do Kenny justice to box him in so tightly when he is such a unique proposition himself. He has been patient with dropping his music but it’s worth the wait. Following the release of his brilliant new single ‘Sore Loser//’ that was premiered by Zane Lowe we caught up with the rising star to shoot him some quick questions.
