What is Lenny Kravitz’s Net Worth?
Lenny Kravitz is a Grammy-winning American record producer, singer, actor, songwriter, and musician who has a net worth of $90 million. His style incorporates elements of jazz, hard rock, rock, pop, ballads, blues, R&B, psychedelic, folk, reggae, and soul.
Leonard Albert Kravitz was born in New York on May 26, 1964. He was the only child of NBC television news producer and Green Beret Sy Kravitz and actress Roxie Roker. Kravitz’s father was of Russian Jewish ancestry and his mother was from a Christian family.
He started attending church after a spiritual experience at the age of 13 and later became a non-denominational Christian. He attended P.S 6 for an elementary school in Manhattan. Kravitz began banging on pots and pans in the kitchen, playing them as drums at the age of three.
He decided that he wanted to be a musician at the age of five. He began playing the drums and soon added the guitar. Kravitz relocated at the age of 10 to Los Angeles with his parents when his mother landed her role on The Jeffersons, in 1974.
Kravitz decided to record an album on his own under the name Romeo Blue. In 1985, Kravitz met the recording engineer, keyboardist, and bassist Henry Hirsch when recording a demo at his Hoboken, New Jersey recording studio.
He met saxophonist Karl Denson and he gave him an invitation to play the song “Let Love Rule”.He was delighted with the playing that Denson played on much of the album. Denson toured with Lenny for five years beginning in the mid-1980s.
After completing most of the recording in October 1988, Lenny approached friend Stephen Elvis, who had served as the music supervisor on Lisa Bonet’s The Cosby Show spin-off A Different World.
Lenny urged Smith to assist him to manage his career in finding a record deal. After a few weeks of shopping for the recordings, five labels (Warner Bros, Elektra, Geffen, Capitol, and Virgin) were in a bidding war for Kravitz.
Ultimately, in January 1989, a deal was made with Virgin Records. Kravitz dropped the name Romeo Blue and reclaimed the Lenny Kravitz moniker on Smith. Music critics were mixed: some felt Kravitz was a gifted new artist, and others felt he was overpowered by his musical influences.
The album was a moderate success in the United States, but became an instant hit outside of the US, especially in Europe. Lisa Bonet directed the debut music video for the title track, “Let Love Rule.”He performed the song “Cold Turkey” at the John Lennon Memorial concert in May 1990.
In 1991, Kravitz separated from Lisa Bonet. Kravitz wrote “Line Up” for Aerosmith, appeared on Mick Jagger’s solo album, Wandering Spirit, on a cover of the Bill Withers soul classic ‘Use Me’, and played guitar on the title track of David Bowie’s The Buddha of Suburbia. In 2000, Kravitz released the Greatest Hits.
Kravitz contributed “Breathe” to absolute tracks, a project sponsored by Absolut Vodka in January 2006. Lenny performed at the Brazillian leg of Live Earth on 7 July 2007, in Rio de Janeiro.
These made him one of three major international rock stars to perform two huge free concerts at the world-famous Copacabana Beach along with Macy Gray and The Rolling stones.
In January 2009, Kravitz made his feature film acting debut in Precious which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. Kravitz’s next album, tentatively titled Funk, was tentatively re-titled Negrophilia and was due out sometime in 2010. The first single “Come on Get It” was released on February 20, 2011.
On March 23, 2012, Lenny played the part of Katniss’ creative stylist, Cinna, in the first two Hunger Games films, The Hunger Games. Kravitz released his tenth studio album Strut on his own Roxie Records via Kobalt Label Services in 2014.
In 2015 he became a furniture designer for the first time ever launching a collection of furniture products marketed under the label CB2 x Kravitz design through retailer CB2. In 2017 he earned a spot on the Fox Television series Star playing the part of Roland Crane in his first recurring television role.
Kravitz signed with BMG Rights Management for a new worldwide publishing music deal to go with his new album Raise Vibration in April 2018 and it was released in September 2018.
