Bio

A dedicated and introspective songwriter, Pat Kenny is familiar with the art of storytelling. The former Australian Army Officer, turned singer/songwriter, brandishes a sonic signature that blends rustic Alt Country, with timeless folk tale traits. 


'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 rotation on ABC Country’s National playlist, and was added to Spotify’s ‘New Music Nashville’ playlist. 2019 also saw Pat Kenny embark on a new musical journey as one half of indie folk duo, Freight Train Foxes. With the wind in his sails from a string of successful releases with the band, Kenny is set to release a number of tracks in 2020 with both acts. 


Kenny’s upcoming single ‘Devil’s in The Detail’ continues his exploration of sounds for modern western cinema, and is scheduled for release on 11th June.

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.
