We are very excited about Kenny's future in the Music Industry and introducing this very talented young man to the world. Kenny's guitar skills are nothing short of amazing. The channel running from his heart to his fingers is wide open for the world to hear. We and others have noticed an almost haunting sound when he plays guitar to the ballads he sings and also wonder if he has an extra set of hands on the strings of his guitar with the many beautiful notes he brings out when he plays. We realize that anyone who loves fine country guitar work owes it to themselves to go hear Kenny play! Kenny's vocals are truly a mirror to his soul. His vocal styling is truly unique. It's been said his voice is haunting, totally different from anyone else and once you hear his voice you don't forget it, It sticks with you!!
Musicians who have toured for over twenty-five years or more and has played with some of the great legends in this business can safely say that Kenny Brannan is one of the finest Country Artist that they have ever known. We also feel that Kenny's writing is not just more of the same. Today's country music for the most part so closely resembles the soft rock love songs of the '70's with steel guitar and fiddle added. Kenny Brannan's songs are truly country music and are a credit to the Traditions started by the great ones who are sadly leaving us now! You can look for great things from this young man in the near future!!!!!
Southern Drive is my band name. It was a street sign but it kind of explains my music. Put some Southern Drive in your country.
Kenny Brannan has been singing since he was around four years old and has been playing lead guitar professionally since the age of 17.
Kenny just finished recording his latest album, “I‘m in a Tropical Depression“, what can I say except that it‘s simply one of his greatest songs yet. beautifully done! “Sometime Later“, this one is another beautifully done song, with great fiddle, “You finally said something good“, redone by Kenny, written by Gene Strasser has already had chart recognition in the past, "Just One More Lie" also written by Gene Strasser and a sweet ballad, and a dynamite version of a classic hit called "A - Eleven," and "Hole In The Wall" a really heartfelt ballad written by Kenny. These songs are awesome and are already getting great reviews. They have just been sent to radio stations all over the United States. Kenny recorded six songs at Woodland Studio in Pittsburg, Kansas with Phil Ward as the engineer, and which by the way is just awesome, and Kenny Brannan and Gene Strasser as the producers along with Nelson Larkin who has twenty number one hits under his belt. Kenny recorded His latest three songs at Lone Wolf Production, Tim Letchworth as the engineer did a great job on Kenny’s latest material. Kenny also plans to do three more at Lone Wolf studio.
Kenny recorded two songs "You're Already Gone" and "Time Stands Still in Here", with Southern Drive that has also received quite a bit of airplay even though that recording, though great, was done in the drummers living room in Wentworth, Missouri. Kenny has also recorded some of his original songs in Nashville as well as other places.
Kenny has also won some awards such as Silver Heart Award 1998 Instrumentalist of the year and Silver Heart Award 1998 band of the year. Kenny won the Miller lite Rising Star challenge in 2000. Kenny has also had Newspaper write ups and several articles in magazines.
Kenny has also received quite a bit of airplay overseas and here in the states.
So many have influenced his music but I would have to say Merle Haggard, Alan Jackson, George Strait, and Hwy 101 where the ones who influenced his music the most. Being a songwriter and singer Country music is a way of expressing in a story the happenings in your life or others lives.
Kenny has a lot of great things going for him at this time and a very bright future ahead of him. Kenny's new promoter plans to spread Kenny's music worldwide and Kenny plans to Tour Europe in the near future. With the support of his wife Jeanette and an awesome manager in Gene Strasser, we just feel Kenny can’t lose! Also a great label Antique Records.
