A fresh new face on the Halifax music scene, Mo Kenney radiates a vulnerability and fearlessness that instantly captivates audiences. She has garnered admiration from Aartists for whom she's opened, and counts among her fans Ron Sexsmith, Crash Test Dummies and Gordie Sampson. A versatile songwriter with a distinctive voice and compelling lyrics, Mo has been described as an artist to watch. It was these qualities that brought her to the attention of Joel Plasket, who is working with her in his Scotland Yard Studio to produce her first full length record. Atlantic Airwaves caught up with Mo Kenney during a live to air CBC Broadcast from the 'Breakout Stage' at the 2012 East Coast Music Awards held in Moncton NB.
