Bio

A thoughtful songwriter with a unique, husky voice, Pat Kenny is familiar with the art of storytelling. The former Australian Army Officer and Brisbane-based singer/songwriter, brandishes a sonic signature that blends rustic Alt-Country, with timeless folk tale traits, that bear the influences of Ray LaMontagne and Bob Dylan.

'An emerging artist with the chops to follow the likes of Paul Kelly and Shane Nicholson into the fame halls.’ - Kath Devaney (ABC Country Programmer)

Kenny’s 2019 single, ‘Watch It All Come Down’, garnered national attention receiving airplay on Triple J, rotation on ABC Country’s National playlist, and an addition to Spotify’s ‘New Music Nashville’ playlist. The dark Alt-Country track embodies the influence of Colter Wall and would feel equally at home in a scene of ‘True Detective’, or a modern-day western.

With appearances at Tamworth Country Music Festival and the Gympie Music Muster in 2019, more milestones lay ahead in 2020, with the promise of new music on the horizon.

So much heart comes through in the tune, it's melancholic but in that kind of way that you can't help listening to over and over.

Hauntingly toe-tapping good arrangements and those raspy vocals will leave this song lingering in your temporal lobe crevices for days. This is a head turner aka you'll have this song on repeat after one listen. An emerging artist who has the chops to follow the likes of Paul Kelly and Shane Nicholson into the fame halls.

The ebb and flow of this tune suckers me in deeper with every listen. The way the violin (fiddle?!??! - same, same) comes in an out throughout is so tasteful and takes the tune to higher places, Kenny's vocals are also great, reassuring and cooool.
