June 10, 2003
it has been a horrid-ly long road for me

if you like it, keep it to yourself - which means...
keep it close to your spirit and only give it to those who will understand.
they may need it as much as you.
you all are amazing and i thank you for being there for me

(04/14/03 in an email)
For those of you that do not know, and still care.
I have left Interscope Records for several reasons.
I am currently on Columbia Records and will release the record within the next couple months.
There are changes ahead.
At this point, I am certain.
Come back to www.kennaonline.com
Join me in the journey. Its been a long road.
(12/22/02 - email) thank you i have been surprised at the endurance for this music you have all displayed. i know that the last year and a half now has been empty. i have really had no power over it. i was trapped by a mini-corporate struggle that forced me to take measures to protect my intellectual property and love. i left Interscope Records because i was not a priority to them and their business. The team at Flawless were doing their best to make it happen, but the parent company did not understand the work they were to accomplish. i am currently, and happily signed to sony/columbia records. it was a long process to transfer my masters and organize new relationships within a new company, but now i am happy to say i am settled in. the beginning of the year holds new things and the, finally, late release of NSC. i will tour. there will be merchandise soon. there will be a new video. there will be a few televised concerts. there are many things on the horizon. thank you for staying... don't leave now - as we are about to begin. thank you again kenna ALBUM
