In My Dreams
Her eponymous debut album in 2012 announced Mo Kenney as a thrilling young talent. She soon notched ECMA and Canadian Folk Awards and the prestigious 2013 SOCAN Songwriting Prize, and now her second album, In My Dreams, ups the ante. It is again produced by the ubiquitous Joel Plaskett, who also played on the record and contributed some co-writes. It has more of a rock feel than the first, with Kenney's vibrant vocals suiting the form. She is lyrically fearless and has also made real strides as a performer. A truly well-rounded talent. She has joked that she considered naming the album Sophomore Jinx, but it sure ain't that.
Kenney is currently touring in Europe prior to an extensive cross-Canada trek in October and November, including gigs with Kim Churchill. Go to http://mokenney.com/tour/ for details.
