Amber Kenny’s love of music began at Leura in the Blue Mountains before she headed south to Robertson in the Highlands, where she now lives on a farm with her family, horses and Maton guitar.
A late arrival on the music scene, Amber picked up her guitar in 2014 to finally compose the songs that had been “sitting inside” her for many years. Her natural vocal rawness and beauty creates beguiling melodies with honest lyricism that illustrates a gift beyond her years of experience.
Her passion as a singer songwriter is borne from hours of listening to Lauren Hill, Tina Harrod, Melissa Etheridge, Joni Mitchell and Patty Griffin, all of whom she’s lovingly studied as well as experiencing their live performances many times.
A self-taught starter with the help of some special musician friends, Amber has now paired with Ben Fink to produce her first EP “Out In The Open”.
Recorded in the studios of Highland FM
