Fifth Album, Solo Piano Album Entitled Reflections on Inner Transformation, Confirmed for 2022 Release.
Coming off the success of the 2020 release of the collaborative album Forth and the subsequent supporting tour, Kenney is releasing a twelve-song collection of solo piano pieces. Reflections on Inner Transformation presents twelve improvisational pieces each inspired by a meditation on a different area of active personal focus.
The album has the hallmarks of Kenney's distinctive piano playing and compositional voice, and draws from New Age, Classical, Jazz, and other styles. Singles releases from the upcoming project have already been featured on blogs such as Music Dances When You Sleep and MainlyPiano, playlisted on many Spotify/Apple Music lists, and aired on Hometown Heroes/Delaware Public Radio.
