NYC-raised band leader Oliver Kennan is songwriter, guitarist, vocalist behind one of city’s most exciting soul ensembles. Debut out May 10th.


‘Waiting’ is a modern take on the rock and soul of the past,” says Oliver Kennan. “It’s the classic story of a young man searching for love in the loneliest big city in the world, NYC.”

The music calls back the up-tempo funk of Tower of Power circa “What is Hip” with a contemporary swagger and Oliver plays the part of the lonely loverboy with equal parts conviction and good humor.

The band channeled the vintage sounds of their favorite records by recording live to tape at The Bunker Studios and Thump Studios in Brooklyn. The track was produced by Graham Stone and mastered by Bob Ludwig.

Oh Boy arrives May 10th via Hornblow Recordings.
