The Singing Barber's back Rockin' and Rollin'
Banagher native Colin Kenny, known to country music fans nationwide as 'The Singing Barber', has released his latest single, Rockin' and Rollin'
The latest cut to be taken from his official debut album, Annie, Rockin' And Rollin' is set to continue Kenny's rise to prominence as one of the country scene's newest singer/songwriters of note. Co-written with Tipperary man Brendan Carroll, the track's feel-good, nostalgia tinged vibe comes at a perfect time as venues begin to reopen and 'live' music once again becomes an intrinsic part of so many peoples' lives.
For Kenny, based in Borrisokane where his recently opened hair studio is located, getting back in front of his fans again - in real life - has been a beautiful feeling.
"There's no feeling like it! And every time you get to introduce a new song, especially when it's an original and one that you've had a hand in writing, you're reminded of that thrill that comes with having a 'live' audience in front of you. There's a certain kind of buzz that comes from connecting with people like that, and it's nearly impossible to replicate. I was back out this weekend as part of the Nenagh 'Live' event when it came to Borrisokane on Sunday, and then an acoustic session in the Green Bar that evening as well, and I'll tell ya, it's good for the soul!"
While Kenny is now back bringing smiles to faces in person again, playing tunes like new single Rockin' And Rollin', and previous hits You've Got That Something, Will You Dance With Me, Annie?, I'm A Country Singer, and more from his own catalogue, it was his regular Facebook 'Live' shows that did so much to keep peoples' spirits up through the difficult and often lonely times of the last year and more. And even though he's back on the road again now, he has no plans to call a halt to those intimate performances.
Rockin' and Rollin', the brand new single, from Colin Kenny, (co-written with Brendan Carroll) is available on all platforms. You can follow Colin on Facebook at Colin Kenny Music.
