Gig Information

UK born, Auckland based indie musician Mark Kenington is set to release his debut album on April 28th 2017 and celebrates with this launch gig playing the full album, plus support from Auckland 3 piece band Shady Brain Farm.

Kenington writes honest, reflective songs of a timeless nature wrapped in lush, catchy melodies. Songs that often mix a positive vibe with a darker and deeper lyrical message.

Moving to NZ in 2004, Kenington adopted the kiwi ‘give it a go’ attitude and took up singing, guitar and piano lessons. He honed his songwriting skills and began frequenting open mic evenings.

A chance meeting with Mike Chunn put Mark in touch with producer and engineer Andrew Buckton. What started as a vague idea of making an EP turned into a full album project and well and truly planted the music making seed.

Says Kenington, “This collection of songs are reflections about dreams morphing into an energetic reality that fails to meet our expectations. We think what we’re working towards is going to be the answer but often it’s not what we are really looking for or need.”

Lead single ‘Dollar For My Daydream’ is a track inspired by the exchange between Mark and a café waitress and the fantasy that ensued. Punchy electric guitar and memorable melodies punctuated by Mark’s distinctive voice evoke the likes of Brit pop/indie rock bands such as Supergrass and Blur.

The album was recorded by award winning producer and engineer Andrew Buckton (Midnight Youth,The D4, Sommerset, Ekko Park) at Studio 203.

The result is a body of highly crafted, insightful catchy songs translated into beautifully sonic guitar pop soundscapes. ‘Going Nowhere (Faster Than You)’ will be available for purchase from iTunes, Bandcamp and all good digital service providers, plus physical CDs will be purchasable from Bandcamp and live shows.
