«Kenny Bogan» - 伝記、アルバム、曲、ビデオクリップ

Kenny Bogan was born in 1977 in Dublin, Ireland. He started writing music, poetry and stories at a very early age. He introduced himself to the piano at eight. He started banging on the drums soon after. The Stones, of course, and a few local friends - and then there was a band. Who else? Elvis. The Beatles. David Bowie. Leonard Cohen. Some techno. Lots of traditional Irish music. Anything good, really. The front-man quit the night before the first show. Someone had to sing. Kenny grabbed the mike and found a calling. He ran through the bars and clubs in Dublin - and did well. Too close to home, though. There was always something about the continent. He took his guitar to Amsterdam. He practiced his craft. He learned to sing, strum and blow the roof off the joint. There was an accident one year (an arm: don’t ask). Just because you can’t play doesn’t mean the music stops coming. One learns to write it down. It’s Ireland, late 60s, early 70s. The Troubles. The Miami Showband was huge. Kenny’s dad played drums and took care of business. Terrorists killed three of them July 31, 1975. Tony survived. Kenny was born two years later. There is a history there. Father knows best. Tony told Kenny to keep on writing. A few years in Glasgow, the States. Back to Amsterdam. The first two albums (‘Little Victories’ and ‘3 Colours’) were recorded at home. ‘3 Colours’ caught the ear of the legendary John Reynolds. He wanted to hear more - and here we are. ‘The Skinhead and the Daisy’ was recorded in London at New Air studios in the spring and summer of 2010. It is scheduled for release in January, 2011 on IRL. The voice is unmistakably Irish; the lyrics are urgently poetic; the beats are seriously heavy. He’s bright and vibrant alone; he’s driven and intense with a band. This is what happens when you sing to exorcise demons. Kenny would like to thank you for reading this. …
