BRIAN J. KENNY - Unique American Musucian

Brian J. Kenny: Unique American MusicianBrian J. Kenny is a compulsive writer and his music and his perspective are the result of his often dichotomous life: the city boy growing up in the country, the country boy living in the city, the hayseed populist turned Greek and Roman archaeologist existing in the effete world of the academe, the humanist working as a computer scientist, the scientist working as a writer, the writer working as a laborer, a farmer, an award-winning olive oil producer, the manager of a grass-fed beef division for a major privately-held media company, the wanderer happily settling down with his beloved wife and their two children, and the Technologist and Director of Collections and Archives.


He has recorded over 30 albums for Country Tick Records since 1997 and is preparing to re-release his back catalog. Kenny has performed in Europe, Asia, and the USA. He has played in wine cellars and in mines, and he has played in a jet at 45,000 feet. He has opened for and performed with numerous touring acts including Merle Haggard's Strangers, The Holmes Brothers, Louie Ortega, and the California Cowboys. He has been featured on NPR. and currently resides in the California Republic.
