Leny’s GirlComp Runner up
Leny’s Girl has Blues at its roots and a train ride through Country, Rock and back again. Fronted by vocalist Kasey Mckenzie who is a accomplished stage performer who recently starred in the lead role
as Eva Perón in a stage production of Evita. Her Mezzo-Soprano combines with a mixture of crazy intricate guitar solos as well as smooth slide guitar from Beggsy and haunting harmonica from Cookie. All this is poured over a solid serving from the engine room of drums (Brownie) and Bass (Tom Raw).
Leny’s Girl is named in memory of Kasey’s mother who sadly passed away of Motor Neurone Disease (MND). Kasey has since given birth to a beautiful baby girl named Hendrix (very Rock and Roll!). Hendrix is Leny’s Girl’s Girl!
‘Devil with a Gun’ is Leny’s Girls first online EP. This will be released as part of a full album later in the year.
‘Devil with a Gun’ is currently 9th in the Australian Blues & Roots Charts
