Bio

After previously serving in the Australian military for five years, Pat Kenny has now turned his attention to songwriting. The Brisbane based singer/songwriter shattered his kneecap in 2015, cutting short his military career. This event inspired him to begin turning his stories into songs. Kenny's sound is a blend of Folk and Alt-Country, taking inspiration from artists such as Bob Dylan, and Ryan Adams.

Pat Kenny's latest single, ‘Watch It All Come Down’, is a dark, Folk/Americana mix, conjuring images reminiscent of scenes from True Detective, or a modern-day western. With his unique, husky voice and authentic lyrics, Kenny explores personal tales, metaphors and insights into the human condition.

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.
