Mo Kenney - Song Writer Series April 1, 2017 7:30 pmTickets starting at $23Mo Kenney is a Canadian singer/songwriter based in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.
When Mo Kenney started writing the songs that would become In My Dreams, she was in a sweet spot: Mo had just recorded her debut, and wrapped up her tour feeling like she had all the time in the world to write anything. In fact, she didn’t even realize that the title track, which was the first song she wrote, would become the starting point for her next album.
The biting and relatable lyrics stay true to Kenney's mantra of unabashed honesty in order to create music that connects. Mo's darker muses include Elliott Smith and Sylvia Plath, as evident in "Take Me Outside" and "Mountains To The Mess".
However, the progression of her songwriting craft compared to her debut isn't indulgent or maudlin. She describes her relationship with producer and mentor Joel Plaskett as the yin to her yang. "With some songs, I knew that he would add something cool to it and make it less dark...that's one of the things that he brings to the table," Kenney explains.
