Hailing from Aiken, South Carolina, the Kenny George Band has created an indelible impression with fans
throughout the Southeast and Midwest, playing 250 concerts in the last two years alone. They’ve travelled
the highways and byways between North and South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia, Alabama,
Georgia, Pennsylvania and Missouri, reconnecting with their fervent followers and picking up new fans along
the way. Their explosive live performances have made them a band on the brink of a breakout, and it’s little
wonder that in 2016, they were voted South Carolina Artists to Watch by the South Carolina Music Guide.
Tempered by the time they’ve spent on the road, the band’s latest album, Borrowed Trouble, looks at life,
longing and relationships through the vast spectrum of constant tours and travel. Like the road itself, it dips
and sways, advancing not in a straight line, but rather in a series of circuitous twists and turns that reveal a
uniquely personal perspective every step along the way. These are songs infused with tattered circumstance
and a view of life as seen looking out the windows of one’s touring van, where miles of highway offer plenty of
time for reflection and contemplation. The music is underscored by a drive and determination that makes it
both engaging and enlightening in equal measure. It’s melodic, it’s measured, and it’s often gritty, but it’s a
sound that resonates in ways that are both tender and tenacious.
