MO KENNEY is an award-winning Canadian folk/pop singer/songwriter from Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. Kenney began playing guitar at 11, initially influenced by classic rock artists like Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, and Ozzy Osbourne. Kenney began writing songs at 16, inspired by singer/songwriters such as Elliot Smith. Catching the ear of Canadian rocker Joel Plaskett while still in school, Kenney’s self-titled debut album, produced by Plaskett, was released in September 2012 and garnered critical acclaim, including an East Coast Music Association award nomination and three Music Nova Scotia awards. Kenney’s song “Sucker” won the 2013 SOCAN Songwriting Prize. Dubbed “Nova Scotia’s rising star” by The Scene magazine, Kenney went on to tour with Plaskett and Ron Sexsmith.

The success continued with second album, In My Dreams (2014), which also won an ECMA award for Pop Recording of the Year. In 2017, Mo Kenney released their third album, The Details, followed by the single “Ahead of Myself” in 2019. Their 2021 album, Covers, features renditions of songs by artists including Patsy Cline, Daniel Romano, Stone Temple Pilots, The Kinks, Guided by Voices, Tom Petty and The Magnetic Fields, showcasing their versatility.

On 2024 studio album, From Nowhere, Kenney delves into themes of ambiguity, personal growth, and the complexities of memory and relationships. The album’s lush arrangements span dreamy folk, sparse alt-country, and hazy lo-fi pop, encouraging interpretation without fixed meanings. Kenney’s lyrics explore non-linear sentiments, defying easy definitions and highlighting the uncertainty and temporality of life.

Mo Kenney is a truly unique singer-songwriter, telling raw and personal stories through song; distinctive vocals deliver relatable and intelligent lyrics, weaved with outstanding guitar finger-picking.
