ROCKWiRED RADiO PROFiLES PRESENTS:
THE iRRESiSTABLE SONGCRAFT OF ART KENYON
AND HiS STUNNING EP COCOON
MARCH 22, 2012 - We are nearly a quarter of the way into the year 2012 and while we've had our share of strong , hard rocking bands here at ROCKWIRED, we haven't quite happened upon a strong singer-songwriter with that innate ability to create a tune that gets stuck in our while at the same time give us a great deal to think about. With the arrival of the six song E.P. COCOON by British Vancouver-based songwriter ART KENYON, our wait here at ROCKWIRED is over. KENYON, recorded the EP in six days with the assistance of longtime friend VINCE DITRICH from SPIRIT IN THE WEST (drums/production), BRYAN ADAMS’ bass player NORM FISHER and RICHARD SERA (keyboards, engineer). In conjunction with the recording, he also had the opportunity to create an edgy music video for the infectious, hard driving acoustic guitar driven tune “THIS GIRL'S IN TROUBLE”—which features the memorable, Lennonesque line “Now I can see, ireevocably- this inevitability- Sue would be the death of me.” Key tracks on the album include the groove driven title track “COCOON” that uses the term as a metaphor for the different barriers that prevent us from growing up and taking life to the next level. It ponders the question: As a young person, will I ever amount to enough even after all I’ve gone through to get this far? Thematically, the syncopated R&B flavour of “ALWAYS” and infectious acoustic romp “TUESDAY NIGHT” are about the many ironies of emotion, about life lived with contradictions, caring too much for people and situations that ultimately don’t make us happy.
