The jaunt hits nine major markets, allowing audiences to experience the singer, songwriter, and producer in an intimate setting as he brings the music from his debut Audio Justice EP to life on stage. The video for his first single "Gimme Your Love" is set to premiere February 18th on VEVO.

Since its release, Audio Justice has drummed up unanimous praise from top tastemakers for its astonishing amalgam of modern alternative R&B, industrial soul, hypnotic synths, and booming futurist hum.  Here's just a taste of what the critics have to say:

The Fader: "Audio Justice unapologetically goes left, enjoying the slick guitars and earnest nastiness of '80s heroes like Rick James and Prince."

VIBE: "If you've got any type of soul living inside of your skin, KES' genre-bending new EP Audio Justice will become a fixture in your iTunes. Press play and thank us later."

MTV: "TRIPLE THREAT ALERT! While every track on Audio Justice is equally stellar, there are a few undeniable standouts. Like, we're talking songs that are drop-what-you're-doing AWESOME."

The Singersroom: "Newcomer KES is yearning for attention and after listening to his debut offering, Audio Justice, we can categorically say he deserves it."

ARTISTdirect.com: "You want a peek at the future? Take one listen to KES. R&B may never be the same. Meet its new leader…"

Still, hearing is really believing.  You can enter the world of Kesington Kross now as he's streaming Audio Justice in its entirety on his official Soundcloud page. Evoking 80s soundscapes that wouldn't be out of place in a Michael Mann film, his dynamic voice extends from a transfixing falsetto into smooth crooning. It's as nocturnal as it is sexy, echoing the sound of the night. For a quick look, listen to the single "Gimme Your Love" here.

Born in Orange County, CA, Kesington's mother moved the family to Compton following a setback. Although the budding musician adjusted quickly to his new surroundings, he never forgot witnessing culture disparity, which influences his songwriting. Drawing from David Bowie, Depeche Mode, Phil Collins, and Prince, he creates a sound that's all his own. Audio Justice is his first musical statement.
