Bio

Victor Kennedy is a seasoned troubadour and world-traveller. Hailing from Newcastle, NSW, Australia, and with a head of vast musical influences turned to notion and impression, Victor grabbed his ideas and set off on a life's journey of music and culture.

His well worn cowboy boots have seen him through many a valley and plateau . In 2006 he was invited to be on a panel of Judges for The Australian Songwriters Association's annual Songwriting Competition. One of Victor's songs, the vinyl release “What's Cooking”, was used by ABC TV as the theme song for a cooking show.

While living in London, Victor composed soundtracks for student films at Pimlico Arts College, as well as doing Solo and Band gigs in and around London.

In 2010 Victor was approached by Renegade Films, a Melbourne based Multi-Media Production Company, with a request to use some of his music in a film that was in production. Due to ill health Victor was unable to participate in this project, although he still harbours a keen interest in diversifying his musical career to include 'regular' styled songwriting alongside forays into the filmic and stage production fields. Via Triple J Unearthed and Off The Record in association with Street Press Australia, Victor’s song “ARCTIC CORE” was released on a Compilation CD featuring 20 Victorian Bands/Artists. This Compilation CD was released in January 2013.

A new album of Victor’s songs is currently in production and will include songs available in demo form on this website and via Facebook as well as new work which is in production. This album is due for release in late 2014.

Victor Kennedy has an original talent borne of experience compressing an adventurous, joyful and sometimes hard life into a libretto of fine original material which reveals quite profound observations and great stories of both individuals and the human condition.
