Bio

After creating great music and working with some of Philadelphia’s most notable secular R&B artists like Vivian Green, Kindred the Family Soul, Jill Scott, Musiq Soulchild, and Jazmine Sullivan, producer/writer/performer Fred David Kenney, Jr. is taking center stage with his latest release, “Broken back 2gether”. The CD’s title gives voice to the brokenness Fred has experienced in the Lord and in that brokenness his being put together. “I had to be broken and in the breaking process, He was actually putting me back together the right way…the way He intended.”

“Broken back 2gether”, carves out a unique place in today’s Contemporary Christian market. A dynamic combination of songs, portions of this collection will even crossover and reach mainstream Pop/Rock listeners. Each track echoes with the guitar driven cords of a man changed by Christ and a gospel message set to encourage the true believer and draw the non-believer alike.

Born and raised the oldest of three boys with a diverse heritage of African American, English, Irish and French decent, Fred David Kenney, Jr. began cultivating his musical gift when he was just a little boy growing up down the “Jersery shore”. “It all started in about the fourth grade when my parents purchased a trumpet so I could play in the grammar school band.” Fred’s parents also acquired a piano, drums and guitars for him and his brothers throughout those early years and all three boys proceeded to take turns learning how to “make noise” with each one! Fred has been fine-tuning those God-given skills ever since.

An avid Bible student these days Fred is staying in the word by staying in class. Currently a ministry overseer/worship leader and elder in his church, he is also working through a degree in Biblical Studies. The reality of Fred’s relationship with Christ has rung clear for years in his work as a youth pastor and FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes) speaker… and certainly shouts through every cord and melody of his latest work.

In addition to his music, ministry and studies, Fred David Kenney, Jr. balances his Christian walk with his role as a devoted husband. Married to his “best friend”, Katie, it certainly helps that she is his creative partner as well. “God has blessed me through my wife. She is more than I ever wished for. We are a true team. As a graphic designer and marketing manager, she compliments me and does the things that I can’t do. ”

From his early days producing and performing secular music to singing solely for God, one might wonder why he made the switch from secular to spiritual in the first place. “My relationship with Christ is the reason I decided to use the talent He gave me for His glory. I don’t see how He is glorified if I tell people that I am a Christian and then go and sing songs that are offensive”. Considering all of the groups Fred David Kenney, Jr. has played with over the years he isn’t shy about the switch. “At this time God has called me to lead His band.” And singing to a different tune he is. With his release “Broken back 2gether”, Fred certainly recognizes the change and embraces it.

No doubt Fred David Kenney, Jr. is moving to a different groove these days with a talent like no other and… one that must be experienced. With a strong guitar/bass influence and a heart inspired message, Fred “meets people where they are”. This CD is a musical rock on which sits a true Bible based worship and praise of the Lord Jesus Christ.
