Lenny Kravitz, the American Dream

by Ronald A. Rowe September 1st, 2014
Lenny Kravitz is the American dream.  He – personally and professionally - epitomizes the melting pot that America was meant to be and his music is a smooth synthesis of many genres.  Kravitz himself is a mixture of Ukrainian, Jewish, Russian, African, Bahamian, and American heritage.  His music combines influences from R&B, Jazz, Classical, Opera, Gospel, Blues, Rock (including Hard Rock and Psychedelic Rock as well as their more mainstream counterpart), Soul, Reggae, Funk, and even the occasional Ballad.  So it seems only appropriate that in addition to vocals Kravitz often contributes on drums, keyboard, bass, and lead guitar
