After seeing Kenny White open for Stephen Stiles and Judy Collins in Keene NH a year ago, we knew we needed to bring Kenny back to the area. He played at Deb’s House Concerts shortly afterwards; filled the room and had a wait list. So now we bring Kenny back to a larger venue to enjoy this remarkable musician.
“I’d have to say that Kenny White has earned a place among my favorite singer/songwriters … and particularly, lyricists. As we say in the trade ‘he goes deep.’ A true wordsmith AND musician who reveals a fine sense of humor, as well. Put on your headphones and listen carefully.” David Crosby
Astonished audiences often ask KENNY WHITE after a live performance, “How come I’ve never heard of you?” when in fact, the pianist, singer/songwriter, producer and arranger has been very well known in the NYC recording scene for decades. He comes to the world of the touring singer-songwriter following a long and successful musical journey. LONG LIST OF PRIORS, his new album, is the latest collection of original songs: indelible snapshots of the human condition, from heart-wrenching to hilarious and observed with the precision of a diamond cutter. Kenny White’s work in the studio enabled him to assemble a who’s who of musicians and guest artists, including David Crosby, Peter Wolf, Larry Campbell, Amy Helm and Catherine Russell, along with his regular band featuring the dexterous Duke Levine on guitar, shape-shifting Shawn Pelton (Saturday Night Live) on drums, and the masterful Marty Ballou on bass. Now add the horns, strings, and other surprising arrangements, and LONG LIST OF PRIORS is a refreshingly original and multi-layered recording.
