Philadelphia – Like a hot knife through butter, international R&B/pop recording artist Tony Enos continues to melt us down as he brings “The Heat,” his latest CD offering from lil’ T Entertainment LLC. As one of the first openly gay recording artists to hit the scenes years before it was ‘trendy,’ Enos has always blazed his own fiery way with vocals, choreography, fashion and gender bending music videos that truly set it off ! “The Heat” his second CD release, finds him broadening his range with tracks that take hip hop to pop’s blistering edge!
“Hot Knife Through Butter,” the debut single release from “The Heat,” scorches a trail for Enos’ “no holds barred” style. The accompanying video packs the punch that keeps club mongers yearning for more. Stimulating visuals, engaging rhythms and teasing lyrics continue to define the essence of Enos’ sensual appeal. “The Heat” keeps the temperature pumping with tracks like “Be My Boyfriend” which flows with the innocence and fun of physical attraction while ditties like “Maneater” are layered with more serious club rocking intentions!
“With ‘The Heat,’ I was basically dragged kicking and screaming into the 21st century by my amazing producer Phil “iNSANE P” Cason,” shares Enos. “Though this is a new sound for me, I’ve stayed true to my self in my writing, composition and co-production. We were able to deliver a really current pop record and cohesive body of work. Once I heard the first single, ‘Hot Knife Through Butter,’ I committed to the idea of keeping the sound current with a more pop edge. I’ve tried some new things on this album both musically and vocally but it is still classic Tony Enos at the heart.”
Adds Phil “iSANE P” Cason, who is known for his work with India Arie, Justin Timberlake and Timberland, “”This album is really an awesome rebirth for Tony Enos. He really takes it to the edge! Every song on ‘The Heat” is my favorite!”
Since his debut CD, “Did It Rite,” Enos, a choreographer turned performer, has added activist to his endeavors. As an anti-bully advocate, Enos is an official spokesperson for Philadelphia’s Educational Justice Coalition, a non-profit organization that focuses on the educational and academic achievements of LGBTQ youth. Enos draws from his past school days experiences of bullying and hardships to show youth that dreams can become a reality. He is also a national advocate for HIV/AIDS awareness, prevention and education. Utilizing his music, performances and videos as a platform for pride, self worth and self preservation, Enos is a beacon of boldness in the LGBT community and beyond.
