Mo Kenney’s self-titled debut album is a pretty introduction to the young Canadian singer/songwriter and it has been doing the rounds at gigs since 2012.
Her ethereal vocals are lovely to listen to but unfortunately it sounds like any number of softly singing songstresses around today, something akin to a younger Missy Higgins.
Kenney is obviously a talented songwriter, as evidenced with the cutting lyrics on Sucker and Déjà Vu, and this puts her ahead of the pack.
Simple arrangements from producer Joel Plaskett and Kenney – as the only musicians on the album – make this a solid offering from a young talent. (LL)
