Nova Scotia native Mo Kenney returns to Australia with a brand new single and a bag of new songs from her upcoming new album.
In a world where connection becomes increasingly scarce, there’s a quixotic stubbornness in Kenney’s songs, an insistence that forging a bond is worth all the unavoidable pain and heartbreak and self-destruction that might be wrought from it. And there are few songwriters who are able to create such unforgettable melodies while communicating just how rough the ride can be.
Either with band or armed only with her acoustic guitar and voice, Mo Kenney draws the listener in and has them hanging on every word of her songs about love, loss and self-evaluation that pathologically mine the most shadowy corners of herself in order to surface with something unflinchingly honest.
This time, Mo lands down-under with no band and only an acoustic guitar to play a series of solo shows that include performances at Cygnet Folk Festival and Illawarra Folk Festival.
