a few words about Kenna
Heralding from the eclectic city of Conroe, Texas, Kenna Danielle is poised and ready to make her mark on the country music scene. Her sound fuses blues, soul and down-home country, creating a delivery that is uniquely her own. Kenna Danielle wows crowds with sultry vocals and musical genius on both the guitar and harmonica. The singer-songwriter’s insightful storytelling is showcased in songs like Red, White and Blue and Between the Bottle and the Bible.
Taking notes from music greats like Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, Hank Williams Jr. and Miranda Lambert, Kenna Danielle is etching out her place among the renowned. But long before setting her sights on stardom, Kenna recalls her fascination with a hidden treasure discovered in her family home. There were three family guitars housed in a hall closet, collecting dust; one belonged to her great-grandfather. On the rare occasion when her father would pull them out and play, Kenna found herself completely enraptured by the beautiful sound the instruments produced. These rare instances of her father’s guitar playing whet the appetite of the budding musician.
By age 11, Kenna Danielle had learned to play the guitar. This milestone was surpassed the following year when 12-year-old Kenna wrote her first song. She had discovered her life’s purpose on the strings of a guitar and in the pages of her notebook. The rest—as they say—is history.
Today, Kenna Danielle is gigging locally most every weekend and she has had the honor of gracing several festival stages, playing alongside fellow Texas musicians like Bri Bagwell, Thom Shepherd, Jason Allen and The Bigsbys. Kenna has also performed live on Houston’s own, Pat and Rosie's Night Sounds Radio Show KPFT 90.1 FM and College Station’s KEOS 89.1 FM.
Kenna Danielle anticipates the release of her debut album, Good Reputation. This ten-track LP, produced by Stormy Cooper and Lyndon Hughes, will feature 9 original songs. Good Reputation is set to hit the markets and airwaves on May 6, 2014.
When she’s not performing or recording, Kenna Danielle remains true to her country girl nature. She lives for the outdoors and deer hunting. Her down time is also spent maintaining quality relationships with her friends and family. Kenna Danielle’s natural music ability, teachable versatility and fierce determination to succeed give her staying power. She has found a “passion that pays”, and it’s proving to do just that.
