(James Schembri) is the new kid on the block in the Melbourne Rockabilly scene. A nineteen-year-old singer/songwriter and guitarist, performing authentic Rockabilly music … just like it was performed by teenagers in the 50s.
Hailing from Sydney Australia, Ivor Simpson Kennedy
is one of a new generation of exciting young blues talents to emerge from Down Under. Owning a dark, smoke-filled voice and liquid smooth guitar stylings, he utilizes these inherent skills to give his compositions striking originality, paying homage to generations past while bringing a remarkably fresh approach to the table. Ivor also performs all the instruments on his releases, lending his sound a uniquely personal touch. A deliciously deep groove runs through his barebones approach, with strains of reggae, soul, and rock vying for their moment in a bevy of blues.
