Amherst Composer-Pianist Stages BLOOM ROAD CD Release Concert




GREENFIELD, MA — A “Dan Kennedy CD Release Concert” will happen at 8 pm, Saturday, May 30, 2015. To be held at the Arts Block Café at 289 Main St., Greenfield, MA, this concert will feature solo piano music for the soul, as well as a very hot 6-piece band including some of the top musicians around: Joe Fitzpatrick (drums), Rudi Weeks (bass), Emily Duff (sax), and Nick Borges (trumpet). A special appearance will be made by Pennsylvania resident and award winning Native American wood flutist David Rose, who has recorded with Painted Raven and Mars Lasar.

Entitled BLOOM ROAD, Dan’s third album was recorded at Rotary Records in West Springfield. It was co-produced by Kennedy and industry veteran Warren Amerman. Amherst resident and pianist Kennedy hopes that his music can help inspire people to reach their complete potential. “I named this recording BLOOM ROAD,” he explains, “because life is a journey, like going down a road, and I had a vision of one’s soul blooming and reaching its full expression.” BLOOM ROAD features Kennedy, who has a Master of Music degree, on piano and keyboards. In the recording of the album he was joined by several special guests: saxophonist Charles Neville (The Neville Brothers, Ray Charles, B.B. King), Rose, and bassist Greg Loughman (JoAnne Brackeen, Patti Page, Philip Aaberg).

Kennedy started his recording career with the EP LANTERN which was produced by Grammy winning producer Will Ackerman. Out of that collaboration came the composition DULCIMER IN G which was added by Sirius-XM Satellite Radio, where it has been in rotation for five years. BLOOM ROAD currently sits at #7 on the Zone Music Reporter Top 100 Chart, the top chart for New Age music, and at #5 on England’s OWM Top 100 Chart. Dan’s new video “Sweet Rain” was named
