Danny Kensy


I'm country but not your backroads, front porch, lemonade drinking country. I'm more of the cabin at the campground, sitting on the roof with a bottle of tequila country. Modern but not too modern. I'm a songwriter and performer. I love playing hundreds of shows a year, traveling the world and sometimes just staying in my region. No matter what day of the week, I'm playing music.
