Australian Americana Singer-Songwriter Amber Kenny Releases New Single 'Run Dry'
By Stevie Connor.
Amber Kenny's debut EP “Out in the Open” was released in 2022 and she has recently graduated from the 2023 Academy of Country Music as well as performed at her first Tamworth Country Festival.
Amber is incredibly excited to release her new single, Run Dry, produced by Nash Chambers in Nashville at the end of May, ahead of her first trip to Nashville in September.
Amber explains: "This song was written in a moment of raw vulnerability. It's a conversation about being lost and feeling a deep loss of friendships. Being brave to ask the question, has our time ended? Has your love for me ‘run dry’?
At times in my life I have felt a deep sadness and felt like I had lost a connection with those I loved. Fearing I was not on anyone's radar. I think this can be a universal feeling for most of us, at certain times.
This song gives me a feeling of clarity and courage to have some of those conversations I was avoiding. This Is what I truly love about the songwriting process, it opens your heart and sometimes those doors to explore parts of yourself that you might otherwise keep hidden and suffer in silence."
Amber’s love of music comes from Robertson in the Southern Highlands where she lives on a farm with her family, horses and Maton guitar. Her beguiling melodies and honest lyricism illustrate a gift beyond her years of experience as an alt-country musician.
Amber grew up in the Blue Mountains and has fond memories of her and her friends busking as a group on the main street with only three songs and three chords they knew on repeat.
“To write a good story that people can relate to, is magical. When all the parts come together, I feel creatively satisfied.”
Amber's passion as a singer songwriter and love for music goes far back to a wide number of influences including Lauren Hill, Tina Harrod, Melissa Etheridge, Joni Mitchell, Patty Griffin, Dolly Parton and Damian Rice.
