The press wrote

Keno has a message, and with Heart Touch he puts his poetry to music. He has a unique singing style — the deliberate, passionate, emphatical phrasing of a poet put to groovy, edgy rock music. Vocal styles may have entered into a new evolution; it’s something completely new and different.

Bay Area Music Mag

In what might be considered the polar opposite of Britney Spears, Oakland resident Keno Elanz Mapp has assembled a cast of fine musicians to assist him in this recording that, in spirit, resembles the serious, gutsy rock sounds made by the likes of Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix and Jim Morrison decades ago.
