Jeff Kenny is #FLYAH

 



With the release of Integrity Is What An Honest Living Pays, Jeff Kenny brings a classic genre to a new platform utilizing indie rock attitude and classic rock songwriting to create a new set of songs that hit home.

The full length album covers elements of roots rock, folk, and even hard rock without going far from its roots. Each song telling a story or painting a picture of times past, and each song seamlessly connecting with one another as the record plays on. From personal experiences, to social commentary on today's world, to really take the journey, listening to the album in its entirety is needed.

The first single "License Plate"  is an instant classic that grows and builds as it goes and leaves you with a fresh almost freeing feeling. Jeff uses his signature style of songwriting by working with acoustic and electric guitar sections through out the song to keep organic and open feel.

"These are tell tale signs of somebody who is a long way from home, and wondering why, thinking of the possible scenarios.  The narrator thinking back to when he was in the same shoes as the character in the song." explains Jeff of the single.

Jeff Kenny is a singer, songwriter, and guitarist thats been playing as a solo act since 1995. Hailing from Toronto, Ontario Canada, he later relocated to Vancouver in early 2004 where he recorded his first EP "Promised Land Blues". As he continued writing, he released Deep In The West in 2009, followed by High Lonesome in 2012. All leading up his latest 2015 release Integrity Is What An Honest Living Pays.

Jeff is also a student of esteemed songwriter Steve Earle.  As the songwriter says,  "My mission is to keep traditional forms of music alive, with songwriting elevated to a higher level as an artform"

Getting the kind of sound Jeff gets on this album was not easy either. It seems there are a few rules he uses for creating songs like these. "Traditional style song structure, picturesque visual lyrical detail, vintage guitars" says Jeff of his guide lines.

Rules we should all live by perhaps.

Integrity Is What An Honest Living Pays is available for purchase and download on digital platforms.

Michelle Rose Exclusive Interview

  Q:  What's it like growing up in Mpls?   Does the city have interesting stories about Prince?     A:  I only lived in Minneapolis until I was three, but I have fond memories of it.  Even now that I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, I still feel like I'm a part of Minneapolis.  I think a lot of Minnesotans have "Minneapolis Pride", even if they don't live in Minneapolis.  Minneapolis has so many fun things to see and do, and the arts are very important here, with so many theaters and live shows.     Prince put us on the map for music.  I hear Prince stories everywhere I go in Minnesota.  I've met so many people who were associated with Prince, including one of his dancers, and even a former Paisley Park employee working as a cashier at the local grocery store, so I've heard many Prince stories.  I wish I could've been a Chanhassen resident when Prince was still alive, because I know that many Chanhassen residents saw him casually riding his bike around

Planet Of Rhythm Exclusive interview

  GCoulda you tell us what it's like being from L.A.?   LA is a great city for music, like any other large city.   Of course the downsides are things like traffic etc. but it is a wonderful place to create music, to hear music and experience great performances. Could you name the members in Planet of Rhythm and the roles they play? Doug Hafford (me): songwriter, singer, guitar Greg Thomas: Producer Rhythm Guitar, Bass, backup vocals Chad McKinsey: Producer, Drums, Guitar, backup vocals Juliet Roberts: Lead and backup vocals (what a talent she is) Elliott Jason: Lead Guitars Jorge Orellana:  Bass, Sax    Who inspired you guys to make electric blues rock music; is it something you guys just have in common?   The music comes from our love of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s style rockers.   Of course much of that was inspired by earlier artists such as Robert Johnson, or Howlin’ Wolf etc.  We love the simplicity mixed with great musical performances, overdriven guitars and a strong driving bea
