Year Of The Tiger

This is an al­bum that’s been a life­time in the mak­ing, and Kennedy hasn’t been the sole song­writer like this since his pre-Al­ter Bridge out­fit The May­field Four 16 years ago. It proves worth the pa­tience as he fol­lows a more or­ganic acous­tic trail alone; through the in­flu­ences of Led Zep­pelin’s folkier side and his blues hero Chris Whit­ley’s soul­ful slide. As a record with a heavy con­cept (the loss of his fa­ther) it flows with sur­pris­ing light against the shade; the song­writer ex­plor­ing his lower vo­cal range more and show­cas­ing new lay­ers of his ver­sa­tile gui­tar and com­po­si­tional tal­ent in the haunting build of LoveCanOn­lyHeal and dust­bowl blues of BlindFaith.
