The Kennedys!!!
The Kennedys: West

Pete and Maura Kennedy, both East Coast natives, met in Austin, Texas, joined forces with Nanci Griffiths Blue Moon Orchestra for a couple of years, and set out on a road that, for two decades, has led them not only west but all over the US and the UK many times. This year, they celebrate their twentieth anniversary both as a band and a married couple. Rather than indulge in a nostalgic look backward, theyve taken Dylans dictum dont look back to heart; writing and recording forty new songs.

2015 sees a Maura solo CD, a Pete solo CD, and the release of West, an instant classic Kennedys duo set that seamlessly weaves their influences over the last two decades; Buddy Holly style roots, the tuneful cadences of the Everly Brothers, and the ringing 12-string jangle of the early Byrds, interspersed with darker moments that recall British folk rock a la Fairport Convention.

Ultimately, Pete and Maura knit these disparate threads into a coat of many colors that sounds like a best of The Kennedys, but is in reality an all-new collection of songs. The road west is central to the American mythos; its the search for musical roots and the fulfillment of a personal American dream that takes shape in songs. Two decades on, The Kennedys are hitting a songwriting high point, and from that point they follow the well-worn American path West.

West is a collection of thirteen enchanting tracks whose heartfelt and passionate execution makes for a wonderful listening experience.  - Dave Simpson, Pure M Magazine, Feb 5, 2015. (Full Review Here.)

Additionally, Maura is set to release her second solo CD entitled, "Villanelle: The Songs Of Maura Kennedy And B.D. Love." All 15 songs on the album are collaborations of published poet B.D. Love's lyrics and Maura's melodies.

Meanwhile, Pete has completed his solo album called "Heart Of Gotham," set to be released in late Spring. This album is a rock song cycle, every song about New York City.
