Set for Grainstore gig

SHARE

An Australian singer-songwriter will swap the bright lights of Melbourne for the more intimate surroundings of Oamaru next weekend.
James Kenyon is playing at the Grainstore Gallery on Saturday, April 9.
Described as an “intelligent, interesting” performer, Kenyon will be joined by double bassist Luke Richardson and New Zealand musician Monty Bevins.
Kenyon is launching his new single, The Motorbike Song, with a 20-date New Zealand tour.
His songs have been described as a “view from a car or a silhouette of a silo or a window in a hall; songs that stand tall for the ages”.
Kenyon certainly has an interesting background. He is a former arborist, shearer’s hand and social worker, and says his songs reflect the land where he lives and works.
He has been praised for his powerful live performances, won the inaugural Age Stage award, and has been shortlisted for the Vanda and Young Song contest.
His critically acclaimed debut album, The North Pole, will be followed by his sophomore release, Imagine you are Driving, due in the middle of this year.
