The Kenn Morr Band - "Along the Way"

“Along the Way” features ten new songs penned by Morr highlighted by the cohesive playing of the Kenn Morr Band in the Folk/Rock/Americana style for which the band has become known.

The result is an organic collection of lush three-part vocal harmonies and sparkling instruments—real musicians playing soulful music in real time.

United Kingdom’s Folk Word states: “The latest album from The Kenn Morr Band, ‘Along The Way’ serves up a selection of laid-back warmth, involving softly embracing songs and pin-sharp observational lyrics.”


Quotes:
"...This album deserves passion buckets of compliments. It’s that good...The best ‘get’ that I ‘got’ in a long time. If Roger Waters was to record an Americana album, this is what it would sound like.” - Larry Carta, Cool Album of the Day

"...It’s hard to pick ‘highlights’ because this is such a ‘complete’ album, not a single ‘filler’ in sight, every song in its right place and complementing each other start to finish. However, if pushed I’d mark out my favourites as: ‘Out Of The Fast Lane’, Along The Way’, ‘Blow Wind’, ‘Anywhere Will Be Your Home’, ‘Mr Wolfe’ and ‘Run Away’. Yes, there really are that many stand-out tracks..." Folk Words, U.K.

"...Selecting other highlights from this album is an impossible task because there are no weaknesses on the CD. “Blow Wind”, “Let it Go”, “Anywhere Will Be Your Home”, “Mr. Wolfe”, “Run Away” and “Try Me Tomorrow” are of equally strong songs...." Rootstime, Belgium

BIOGRAPHY:
The Kenn Morr Band is on a roll in 2018, pleased to be performing in support of its latest release, “Along the Way featuring ten new songs penned by Morr highlighted by the cohesive playing of the Kenn Morr Band.
The result is an organic collection of lush three-part vocal harmonies and sparkling instruments—real musicians playing soulful music in real time. United Kingdom’s Folk Word states: “The latest album from The Kenn Morr Band, ‘Along The Way’ serves up a selection of laid-back warmth, involving softly embracing songs and pin-sharp observational lyrics.” Album of the Day’s Larry Carta wrote: “This album deserves passion buckets of compliments. It’s that good.”
Kenn’s 2003 album “New Moon Rising” was produced by legendary producer Bob Johnston (Dylan, Cash, Simon & Garfunkel, Leonard Cohen and many others.) The experience of working with Johnston greatly influenced Kenn to continue to write and produce honest and pure music. “Along the Way” is Kenn Morr’s sixth album since the Johnston collaboration.
Growing up on Long Island, Kenn was inspired by such lyric and melody-minded acts as Gordon Lightfoot, Simon and Garfunkel, Graham Nash, and Jackson Browne. Rex Fowler of Aztec Two-Step became his friend and supporter. The KMB enthralls audiences of all sizes, from intimate coffeehouses to the stages of venues as demanding as the famed Bitter End in New York City and the International Festival of Arts and Ideas on the New Haven Green.
The Kenn Morr Band features violin virtuoso and multi-instrumentalist Tom Hagymasi and melodic bassist/vocalist Pat Ryan, a graduate of the Berklee College of Music. Known for its close three-part vocal harmonies and fiery instrumental interplay, the group has been together for many years, becoming fast favorites on the outdoor festival scene and often features noted drummer Tido Holtkamp. They’ve paid dues of every kind and played gigs of every stripe, along the way sharing the stage with artists like John Sebastian, Al Kooper, Eric Burdon, and John Wesley Harding.
With airplay across the country and in Europe (where KMB music gets played in England, Italy, Spain, Belgium, and the Netherlands, among other countries), “Along the Way” is set to bring the Kenn Morr sound to many new listeners.
