Kenny says for the last number of years I have mainly worked with my friends David Paton & Rab Howat and through their support and musical talent I have completed albums and songs that I am really proud of. These are heartfelt compositions written and performed because of my creative writing and some experiences in life. Over the years recording with David and Rab in Denia, Spain, Abbey Road 2, London and in my hometown of Edinburgh has been a real joy and the fulfillment of a life long ambition to write, play and sing songs, long may it continue”.

Song writing is almost a habit with me and I continue to enjoy writing, recording and performing my original music with real passion, for me the biggest thing is for the people who listen to my songs enjoy the words and tunes I have written, performed and recorded. Playing and singing everyday for me is a real joy and something I will do until I can’t do it anymore

Friendship “Without great Family & friends to turn to for help day to day or when times get hard you can end up being a lost soul in this complicated life. Helping, listening, understanding, caring and believing in people makes for an overall stronger, better and happier existence. The qualities needed to enhance every relationship are simple, putting them into practice is sometimes a wee bit harder, some manage to understand how friendship works and unfortunately some never do. You get one go on this planet, so never give up trying to help your friends. Be fair and considerate to your fellow man (sounds like a Davie P. song), live your dreams to the full for as long as you can as we are only in this world for a brief period, be a happy, caring person and enjoy your life with who you love, it only happens one time. The life I have with the love and devotion of my Beautiful wife Caroline have influenced me and given me the real inspiration to write the words and music for all my songs Kenny
