Pheromone Recordings has signed 22 year-old Nova Scotia native Mo Kenney to the roster. Kenney has been turning heads in the Maritimes for the past 18 months commanding stages with a cool and easy grace that belies her age.
It‚Äôs those qualities that brought her to the attention of JUNO award-winner and multiple Polaris Music Prize nominee, Joel Plaskett. Plaskett just finished producing Mo‚Äôs self-titled debut album, currently scheduled for release September 25th on Plaskett‚Äôs New Scotland Records in conjunction with Pheromone Recordings.
Kenney is no stranger to the spotlight. After successful CMW showcases in Toronto this spring, she has also performed at ECMA Week, the Stan Rogers Folk Festival, Evolve, Nova Scotia Music Week, The Rebecca Cohn Theatre, and The Carleton. Her song ‚ÄúEden‚Äù won the Atlantic Film Festival‚Äôs 10 x 10 music video program.
Kenney is quickly gaining admiration from where it counts most ‚Äì fellow musicians. Ron Sexsmith, the Crash Test Dummies, and Gordie Sampson are among those spotted at her shows and singing her praises.
