Interview with Kymberley Kennedy

Teaming up with Miles Williams and Steve Wilkinson, acclaimed singer Kymberley Kennedy has put out her latest EP Pacify. Tomatrax caught up with Kymberley and her band to ask a few questions.

Miles: An unfortunately generic story of wanting to play an electric guitar when I was young because it looked cool so I asked for a guitar for my Birthday avoiding the common misconception that playing acoustic first is best. It was on the same Birthday that my uncle bought me a Jimi Hendrix album and I thought... yeah... I want some of that.

Steve: I 'apparently' used to spend hours sat by the record player listening to my mum's records as a child, then would always be singing around the house, which prompted my mum to arrange for piano lessons for me when I was 7 years old - and it developed from there.

Miles: Awful flashbacks to two chord songs with love sick lyrics from a 14 year old.

Steve: I remember first writing raps and rimes over hip hop beats with a friend of mine in the early 90s, and we used to perform them to his family in their living room on a Saturday night. From there I then put a few chords together on the piano and wrote a song with a melody, but when I presented it to him, it wasn't cool enough for him - so I confined those numbers to my bedroom at the time for my ears only to save some street cred J

Miles: It's not something that crosses my mind personally... we just make what sounds good to us.

Miles: I get a lot of comments after gigs saying what my guitar lines remind them of... these two bands are seldom mentioned but mentioned a lot when talking about the band overall. I think it's hugely complimentary.

Miles: I'm hilarious.

Miles: That would just be everything from Miles Davis to Hendrix to the massive obsession I have at the moment of the XX

Steve: I'm a huge fan of Michael Jackson and you can't not love, Stevie Wonder, Jamiroquai, Nile Rodgers with a bit of Genesis thrown in for good measure.
