‘Cascade’ A painting by Cork based artist Linda Ibbotson provides the inspiration for the new album ‘Outside’ from Tony Floyd Kenna according to his website.
On this offering the sedulous and prolific Kenna takes the listener on a whitewater ride that promises to lift the spirit. Sounding like Cohen or sometimes like Floyd -the one of the ‘Pink’ variety or sometimes just like himself, he delivers a message of positivity and hope.
A print of the aforementioned ‘Cascade’ adorns the cover and the label and is very easy on the eye but it is the sounds and words that are emitted from the polycarbonate material underneath that are are so easy on the heart.
This is songwriting of quality. Five tracts to be immersed in.
Be Here Now — Echart Tolle would approve.
Echoes of Love — Picking up the pace.
Song For A Girl — Soulful.
Outside — Here TFK returns to his ‘Rock Roots’. Upbeat, Catchy.
Girl — A haunting acoustic. Surreal and poignant . Possibly autobiographical .
All songs written , performed, produced and recorded by Tony Floyd Kenna.
