Whisperings and Enlightened Piano Radio pianist Dan Kennedy has performed in 21 states across the U.S.A.
as well as Canada. He has worked with such luminaries as Will Ackerman, Joe Bongiorno, the late Charles Neville, Wings drummer Steve Holley, David Rose, Glen Velez, and the late T-Bone Wolk. Dan has been heard on over 250 radio stations internationally, as well as on Spotify, Music Choice, and SiriusXM. His music has enjoyed over 210,000 spins on Pandora. 17 of his best loved tunes have been transcribed in a companion sheet music piano songbook. Winner of the 2019 Enlightened Piano Radio Album of the Year, Dan's 4th Solo Piano album MOUNTAINS MADE OF SHADOW, ANTHEMS MADE OF LIGHT (Mt. Pollux Music), spent 7 consecutive months on the ZMR Top 100. His previous music peaked at #7 on the ZMR Top 100, #4 on the OWM Top 100, and was one of John P. Olsen s Top 10 of 2012. Dan's concerts are usually full of his original works, but can include cover songs and, seasonally, holiday music. "The music is not about me, it's about what the audience and I share together." Conservatory trained, Dan's compositions begin with a rock-solid formal sensibility, and along the way are overlaid with sparkling melodies and flashes of unexpected improvisation.
After composing solo piano music since the mid-1980s, Dan Kennedy has developed one of the more distinctive voices in his genre. Melody and harmony are central, with soul-stirring meditation and movement always percolating.
