Fiona Kennedy

My first album in a very long time is about to be recorded! From a very young age music has been my passion & I managed to turn that passion into a career. There have been many highs & lows along the way but I hope I’ve stayed true to myself through all of it.

I’ve always been a huge fan of Guitarist Producer Bill Shanley ( of Kinks / Ray Davies fame ) so when he agreed to work on this project with me at his studio in Dublin I was over the moon. We’ll be recording songs reflecting who I am now and I hope to capture that energy that I seem to be able to generate at my live gigs. I have already spent some time with Bill in Dublin doing some pre - recording demo's & discussing the direction I'd like this album to take. He really understands what I'm after! My hope is that this album will capture the definitive me & I'm really looking forward to getting back into the studio again. This album is long overdue!

I've been a musician for over 20 years and I have two daughters. I won Ireland's very first televised XFactor type show called Screentest with the cash prize independently released as a single (on vinyl!) . A few years later I again independently recorded my first album and was thrilled when it was nominated for an IRMA Award. Performances with artists like Kris Kristofferson and John Martyn followed. When my children came along, changes had to be made. Playing for wedding ceremonies was the obvious route when I needed to be home at night but still do the thing I loved most. Over the past few years though, my passion to perform has grown stronger than ever and the support and encouragement I received at the Cork Jazz Festival and at the Lee Delta Blues Club has fanned the flames..A new album is on the cards..!

As a solo artist, I have to pay all extra musicians and pay all recording costs myself. I'll be trying to keep costs down by being well prepared when I go into the studio but I could never hope to fund everything without this Fund it campaign. The €10,000 target will only cover recording costs but I set this target because I believed it was achievable. If we manage to exceed this amount, it will greatly assist with CD duplication, Album artwork, Album cover, marketing & promotion which I will be funding myself at present.
