The Simon Kennedy Band Short Info

Born in Dundee, Scotland in 1981, Simon Kennedy grew up hearing great music through his Dad's vinyl collection. It was also on his Dad's acoustic guitar that he began his musical journey, preferring the sounds of Hendrix and Cream than the music of his contemporaries. As he delved deeper into the music of the past, the three Kings, Freddie, Albert and B.B., inspired him to explore the blues more deeply. By his mid twenties he'd joined his first blues band playing festivals all over the UK including Maryport, Edinburgh and Dundee with a personal highlight supporting The Animals at Jools Holland's bar in Edinburgh.

Moving onto join other local blues bands, and doing session work for others, he eventually decided to start his own in 2014 enlisting the help of some of the area's most talented musicians. The well received debut album, Make Up Your Mind, was released in November 2014 showcasing some gospel-tinged, funky guitar led blues tunes.
