November Updates

Happy Halloween!

This next month is going to be pretty exciting. We’re hosting our Nivo Deux release party in Palm Desert November 20th along with a Q&A. I’ll be posting more information about that soon!

We’re also gearing up for Teen Jazz‘s second 12 Deals of Christmas. Last year the program had great response so we decided to do it again.  We’re putting together our partners for this year’s event, so if you want to see anything in particular, or if you would like to partner with us this year, please let us know!

This year I’m also participating in NaNoWriMo (so don’t be surprised if I don’t post often this month). Wish me luck and if you’re participating too, be my writing buddy!

Ps…. It’s never too early to start Christmas shopping! During the month of November, I’ll be offering my albums at 2 for the price of 1. I’ll post the link soon, but in the meantime, you can check out the music here.



Officially Announcing Nivo Deux

Over the last few months, U-Nam and I have been working behind the scenes on an exciting new project and although it’s been announced on Facebook, Twitter, etc., I have yet to share it with you here.

Our new project and group is called Nivo Deux (pronounced nee-voh doo). We launched our debut single “Love’s No Distance” on July 15 and things have been quite a whirlwind of events since it’s release!

New Single from Shannon Kennedy, ‘Only One’

Latest Release from Shannon Kennedy is the Final Single Before The Full Album Becomes Available

Los Angeles, CA – September 17, 2011 – ‘Only One,’ the latest release by saxophonistand vocalist Shannon Kennedy gives listeners an inside look into her upcoming album, ‘Behind Your Eyes’ as she steps out more than ever as a compelling lead vocalist, producer and composer. This exciting new single, Only One, is now available on iTunes:

Falling in Love for the First Time

After the success of the first two singles from the album, ‘Falling Slowly’ and ‘No One to Catch Me,’ this up and coming artist continues to shine. Co-produced by both Shannon Kennedy and U-Nam (#1 Hit ‘Street Life’ in 2007), ‘Only One’ is a little bit pop, a little bit country, and comes packed with a whole lot of originality.

The song features John Gregorius on acoustic and electric guitars, Kurt Hamernick on drums, U-Nam on bass and additional keyboards, and Shannon Kennedy as the vocalist, keyboardist and on additional guitars.

The single already has been receiving airplay on several online stations and has been featured and reviewed on several music sites. The full album is due out later in 2011 and will feature a collection of new and original music. Summer 2011,Shannon Kennedy made her onstage debut as a vocalist at Nisei Week in Los Angeles, launching her tour of the new material throughout the US and more as further dates materialize. ‘Only One’ is now available through most online retailers such as iTunes, CDBaby and Rhapsody.
