Book Lenny Kravitz for a Private Performance
Rock music in the 1980s had completely lost the gritty feel of earlier eras until Lenny Kravitz rediscovered the magic formula. Kravitz’s sonic template combined good old-fashioned rock & roll with glam, soul, and psychedelia, making him a massive success. He made a splash straight out of the gate with his album Let Love Rule.
Born in New York on May 26, 1964 – Kravitz comes from a lineage of entertainers including his mother Roxie Roker and his father who is a producer. Kravitz was raised in Los Angeles, where he found himself around countless musical giants as a youngster due to his parents’ friendships.
Kravitz signed a recording contract with Virgin Records and issued his debut release, Let Love Rule, in 1989. Kravitz’s debut proved to be a surprise hit due to the success of the title track, which became a hit single and oft-aired video. It was around this time that Kravitz penned a major hit single for Madonna, who went to number one with the sultry track “Justify My Love.”
His third release overall, 1993’s Are You Gonna Go My Way, is often considered to be the finest album front to back of his entire career, with every single song a winner, including the uptempo, anthemic title track, which turned out to be one of MTV’s most-played videos that year. The album was a massive hit and Kravitz became an arena headliner stateside, as well as being featured on countless magazine covers.
Kravitz made his acting debut in the Academy Award-nominated 2009 film Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire. As he was filming his next role — a spot in the eagerly awaited adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games — he released his ninth album, Black and White America, in the summer of 2011 and has since had success with subsequent alums.
Lenny Kravitz is available with a full live rock band on stage.
