Martin Kennedy (pictured here with collaborator Steve Kilbey of The Church) of All India Radio discusses his influences, past and present, and describes his ideal project—we’d love to be in the audience for that concert!
- What made you originally choose ambient music?
Steve Kilbey is one of the busiest men in the business and the tunes keep coming. We recently reviewed The Church’s Starfish album of 1988 and we also took a look at one new album—You Are Everything, with Martin Kennedy—of four Steve Kilbey albums from 2013. Kilbey is not quite as prolific as Bill Nelson, but he is putting out great work and is back with The Church for their first album since 2009’s Untitled 23.
Who doesn’t love a good power trio? We at xxvii4ever have a special fondness for those bands keeping alive the sound of bass, guitar, and drums. One such group is the talented Wings of Apollo, who are based in Nashville, Tennessee. After we heard their debut album, Wings of Apollo, we decided we wanted to know more about them, and they generously and thoughtfully responded to all our questions. Read on to hear all about Jesse Korby (vocals, guitar), Pat Graves (bass), and David Martin (drums).
