The eldest son of an immigrant family relocated to Virginia Beach, Kenna began to express an interest in music upon receiving a copy of U2’s The Joshua Tree. More records by influential artists such as The Beatles, Stevie Wonder, The Cure and The Cars followed, and remain as inspiration and influence of Kenna’s music today. His debut album, New Sacred Cow, co-produced by Chad Hugo of The Neptunes, is difficult to place in a single genre, containing elements of electronica, synth pop, post rock, and house music. Two singles, “Sunday After You” and “Freetime” followed the release of the album; the music video of the latter, along with “Hell Bent”, appeared sporadically on MTV2.
His new release, Make Sure They See My Face, drops August 21st, 2007.
