In a career that now spans two decades, New York duo Pete and Maura Kennedy have traversed a broad musical landscape, surveying power pop, acoustic songwriting, organic rock rooted in their early days in Austin, and a Byrds-inspired jangle that drew the attention of Roger McGuinn, Steve Earle, and most notably Nanci Griffith. The duo co-produced Nanci's latest CD, Dance A Little Closer: The Kennedys Sing The Songs Of Nanci Griffith. On their own recent release, "Closer Than You Know", the songs have a quality, inherent in Maura's voice, that is both soothing and urgent. As writers and producers, the Kennedys continue to mature, from their early style-conscious pop to today's burnished sheen. Always tuned to their own muse, Pete and Maura have once again come up with a unique sound that is as uplifting as it is unclassifiable.
"I've been playing in a duo with my wife, rock singer-songwriter Maura Kennedy, since 1993. We've toured all over the US and the British Isles, and we've put together a few bands along the way, most notably the Strangelings and The Stringbusters. We've released a string of CDs, and we've had the good fortune to work in the studio with great people like Nanci Griffith, Steve Earle, Roger McGuinn, Nils Lofgrin, Eric Ambel, Kelly Willis, and the Dixie Hummingbirds." — Pete Kennedy.
