A graduate of the Berklee College of Music, Devin Kennedy is a musical prodigy, teaching himself guitar, piano, and drums from a very young age. He released a number of singles during 2018, all of which were well received, and today October 4 – which also happens to be his birthday – the Los Angeles native releases his new EP, ‘You & Me, That’s Enough’.
The four track EP, co-written by Kennedy, opens with the very blissed out pop single, ‘Champagne For Two’. It’s got a very familiar vibe, drawing the listener in. This is followed by ‘No Worries’, which with its subtle bossanova vibe, is a song about not being concerned about what you’re missing out on, and the inspiration for the EP title – basically when you’re with the one you love, you don’t need to be concerned about anyone or anything else.
Track three is the very smooth ‘Something Bout That Feeling’, which showcases Kennedy’s baritone vocals, exploring the complicated feelings of chasing love, while at the same time finding comfort in being alone. Final track, ‘The Way It Goes’, is reminiscent of Niall Horan’s ‘This Town’, and is a gentle and quite perfect end to the record. Quiet and subdued, it’s our favourite of the entire set.
‘You & Me, That’s Enough’ serves as a fine example of what Kennedy is capable of. His vocal prowess and musical talent is evident in every song. The EP is out today and can be streamed and downloaded here.
