Album Review by Joseph Timmons: IndiePulse Music Magazine

Imagine if you will, a dark and smoke laden bar room, a single chair on the stage and the faint aroma of last week’s beer still looming in the air. Out walks a young man with a red suitcase, he sits and assembles what would appear to be a small drum set out of the case and he smiles a ½ whimsical, ½ satirical smile, and speaks softly into the microphone “just getting comfortable, are you comfortable” and begins to play a series of chords that snap the necks around to complete attention…. That is Keith Kenny.
Dubbed as “This Generations Neil Young”, there is a complete truth to the statement, the forever touring Keith Kenny has made his home on the road, playing every and any location that would have him and never disappointing, from little 3 table shacks to the grand stages of The NAMM show in Anaheim, in the USA and abroad, as on his recent “Red Suitcase Tour” Keith Kenny is the new bard of the people, a one man band that is composed of timeless souls.
Keith Kenny’s recently released album Keith Kenny Live is a triumph, composed of songs that he has made his calling cards and new material played for the first time on the road, his songs are completely original and are snippets of insight into his life, and it is one of joy, pain, sorrow and allegiance to the possibilities of eternity, Keith Kenny Live is a new staple to the collection of great albums that you should enjoy every time it spins.
My personal favorites on this epic masterpiece are Remember Pain, Filling Holes, Midnight Spiders, Dream Awake and A Roxbury Tale, but believe me, they are all magnificent songs, no… tales of adventure in short sweet segments that once heard will never be forgotten. In addition, there is his rendition of the AC/DC favorite TNT, which on an amplified Acoustic Guitar has a flavor that deserves a shot of Coldcock Whiskey and a strong draw on a menthol cigarette just to make a statement!
Seriously, the album Keith Kenny Live is a great testament to the artist and his devotion to his craft, no auto tune, no overdubs or excessive mix downs, just raw emotion, steel strings and a small red suitcase, filled with an eternity of dreams.
