Using his powerful vocals to convey his messages of love, loss, happiness and despair, Kennedy has built a cult following in his short tenure as a professional musician. He released his debut EP Doves & Ravens this past April, blending elements of vibrant acoustic music with his sweeping range. His dynamic approach has drawn comparisons to fellow folk rockers Bon Iver, James Blake and Vincent McMorrow. Listen to "Moments Passed" above.
