Oops. This event is over, but we have plenty of more great events coming up on our calendar.
For those who may not be aware, Drew Kennedy is as engaging of a talker as he is a singer. As a traveling, Texas-based troubadour, Kennedy falls into the lineage of Guy Clark, more than say, Pat Green, and his albums, specifically, Dollar Theatre Movie and last year's excellent An Audio Guide to Cross Country Travel, contain ample amounts of wit and plain ol' common sense conveyed in very uncommon ways. His rich, nasally twang is distinctive without distracting, and it only adds to the rest of what makes Kennedy stand-out in the crowded river of Lone Star State singer/songwriters. Kennedy, who can write a compelling story to go along with telling and singing them, has been ahead of the artist-blogging curve for while now. Finally, he's joining the ranks of those who release well-done videos. It's hard not to really dig red high heels, isn't it? -Kelly Dearmore, DC9, Dallas Observer
