Over the last two decades, The Kennedys have released a string of albums to critical acclaim in the US, that have traversed a broad musical landscape, surveying power pop, acoustic songwriting, organic rock rooted in their early days in Austin, and a Byrds-inspired jangle that drew the attention of Roger McGuinn, Steve Earle, and most notably Nanci Griffith.

“Irresistible” -Rolling Stone

“More hooks than Marilyn Monroe’s closet” -Chicago Sun-Times

For a duo they cover so many musical avenues & Maura has a strong, melodious voice. The Kennedys have the songs to get them noticed & become much better known, which is the least they deserve based on tonight’s highly enjoyable set. Get Ready To Rock - live review Shepherd’s Bush Empire
The Kennedys albums have been largely unrecognised in the UK, except by a devoted coterie who scan the Internet for import-only releases. That will change this year as the duo prepare to release "Closer Than You Know", their first fully promoted UK album since "Life is Large" was a radio staple some years back.
After a recent barnstorming tour with Nanci Griffith (they produced Griffith's latest CD, "Intersection"), the duo are ready to strike out on their own, this time with an eye to the UK side of the pond. Their live show is honed from literally thousands of Stateside one-nighters, and their new songs have a quality, inherent in Maura's voice, that is both soothing and urgent.
