Graeme Kennedy brings his minimalist rock’n’roll to The Capital Complex stage this weekend.
Graeme Kennedy certainly knows how to make an impression. Since moving from Peterborough to Fredericton about a year ago, his creative voice has already begun to make a significant impact on the province’s art community. As a visual artist, he has helped brand Saint John’s Quality Block Party, creating the festival’s distinct visual appearance seen on posters and event banners, has contributed cover and zine art to Cellarghost’s latest release and was a featured artist at this year’s Flourish Festival. But he’s also a musician – a damn fine one.
Earlier this year, Kennedy released the EP, Looking For A Funeral with his group Graeme Kennedy and Big Dream. Recorded in Ottawa with producer/engineer Shawn Bradley, together with Big Dream drummer Emmott Clancy and bassist Ryan Perks, each of the six tracks embody Kennedy’s self-described minimalist rock’n’roll aesthetic to a tee.
Pairing the polish of an experienced power trio with a minimalist approach to lyrics like that of Pop music’s finest song smiths, Kennedy’s latest collection is precise, clean, to-the-point storytelling worthy of any roadside diner jukebox.
Check him out on stage this weekend when he joins Arsoniste (Halifax) and Rococode (Vancouver) November 11 at The Capital Complex.
