Press Quotes: “Closer Than You Know” by The Kennedys
Guitar and Bass Mag. “The luscious folk-laced tapestry of their latest offering Closer Than You Know will doubtless charm the pants off us Brits." -Rik Flynn, Guitar and Bass Magazine, March 2013, UK
R2 Mag. "Highly regarded duo thanks to their lovingly constructed American folk-rock with country flavours.”
Get Ready To Rock (live review Shepherd’s Bush Empire) “Lovingly crafted acoustic pop. For a duo they cover so many musical avenues & Maura has a strong, melodious voice. Given some decent exposure on say BBC radio 2 & the Bob Harris show, the Kennedys have the songs to get them noticed & become much better known, which is the least they deserve based on tonight’s highly enjoyable set.
Get Ready To Rock (3½ stars) "The new album is easy access pop for grown ups - think Aimee Mann meets The Pierces and you won't be far wide of the mark."
Rock Society Mag. "The constant high points throughout are an abundance of quality songs on which the distinguishing feature is Maura's strikingly beautiful ethereal voice. Lovely stuff."
Zeitgeist.com “If it’s jingly-jangly folk-pop that you like then you’re gonna love this.”
Allmusic.com “An excellent release from start to finish.”
Guitar Techniques “There’s a catchiness about their material. Jangling acoustic guitars & lush vocal harmonies within well-constructed songs & strong melodies.”
Maverick Mag. "Another wonderful album from New York duo comprised of sweet and soulful acoustic alternative folk-pop music. You will truly enjoy the wonderful songs on this marvellous album. Maura's voice is sweet & charming. There's a genuine emotion at work here."
Total Music “Close harmonies bring comparisons to The Corrs.”
Net Rhythms “spellbinding harmonies to melt your heart.”
Flyinshoes.com “Melancholy, dreamy vocal harmonies lined light and friendly jangling pop folk cum country that owes as much to the 1960s music of the Byrds.”
