Dan Kennedy Releases New CD Today
Madison artist Dan Kennedy releases his second album for Slothtrop Music today. Entitled Seems Like Forever, the album is a mellow blend of blues, pop, soul and jazz styles. Kennedy’s distinctive guitar work is impressive enough but here it’s the vocals that take center stage.
Kennedy has been associated with too many acts to name, becoming one of the city’s most reliable session musicians as well as the consummate sideman for a variety of performing acts.
Recently he has paired with Amy Curl and the two have released a pair of recordings, also on the Slothtrop label.
Although his first album was one on which he played all the instruments, Kennedy has assembled some of the finest players in Madison to help with the recording of Seems Like Forever. These include drummer Bob Boyd, keyboardist Jaye Barbeau and bassist Matt Rogers.

Kennedy will celebrate the release of Seems Like Forever at the Fountain, 122 State Street on Wednesday, April 3rd.
