Kenny says for the last number of years I have worked with David Paton & Rab Howat and through their support and musical talent I have completed albums of songs that I am really happy with. These are heartfelt compositions written and performed because of my own 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 fulfilment of a life long ambition to write, play and sing, 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 people to 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 anymore

Friendship “Without great 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 personal thoughts, feelings and experiences I have experienced in making music in my everyday live, loves and friendships again have influenced me and given me the real inspiration to write the words and music for all my songs Kenny
