Prior to Pete and Maura’s first meeting at a song swap in Austin, Pete was well established as an award-winning singer-songwriter in his hometown, Washington, D.C., and Maura was a top hand on the Austin scene. Over the course of a dozen duo CDs, they have graciously folded their talent and inspiration into the confluent sound and vision of the Kennedys duo. The Kennedys’ music has been described as uplifting, empowering and encouraging.
“…I wasn’t expecting them to be such fun, so effervescent and so enthusiastic. Their songs are as upbeat as they are in real life. They have a shared love for certain great artists from the 50s and the 60s and these artists inhabit their music, inspiring their work and encouraging their creativity.” – Spencer Leigh, Country Music People 2014
