“I look at it like the adventures of Bucko and Toad,” explains Kenn.
And it has been quite an adventure, perhaps more so for Kelly, whose husband is a long-time musician, most notably as the frontman for the rock band Armchair Cynics,He and Kelly had been together through the formation and dissolution of that band — and she never expressed any interest in following in his footsteps.
Kenn simply wanted to write country songs with the goal of placing them with other artists. He would ask Kelly to sing background harmonies on the demos.
Kenn then started keeping Kelly in mind as he wrote more and more.
They joined the 604 Records in 2015, and have released 4 singles
“Summer Girl”, “Any Excuses”, Frozen In Your Eyes” and “Country Strong”.
In the end, just as Kelly’s dad calls her Toad, and Kenn’s mom calls him Bucko, it’s just good-natured fun. “This is about Kenn and I waking up every day and saying, ‘This is really fun. We are having a good time and we like what we are doing. When we release our original music, it’s about releasing music that we just want people to enjoy. And that’s our goal for this.”
