"[REMIX] Foreigner"

"...He's played keyboards with the great Daryl Hall. He's also the man behind one of the best remixes we've featured since the site began in 2009: his Resuscitated Edit of She's Mine by AOR colossus Steve Perry. And now he returns with his latest exclusive for us. Featuring Junior Walker on saxophone, Urgent was the first single off Foreigner's classic 1981 album 4 and here Redken transforms it into a dark and atmospheric peak time club track..." - AOR Disco


"[LIVE] KT Tunstall"

"...Kenny Dickenson showed his versatility by standing up from the piano to don a flashy metal washboard/necktie and blow a couple of sharp-muted trumpet solos..." - Santa Barbara Independent


"[PRODUCTION] Hogie- River Of Mercy"

"...this album benefits from a unifying character that is a tribute to Kenny Dickenson's no nonsense production skills but, above all, illustrates the maturity and depth of Hogie's song writing..." - Whispering' and Hollerin'


"[PRODUCTION] Noel Langley- Edentide"

"...This multi-coloured, multi-textured, multi-layered CD has been produced with love, patience, expertise and great attention to detail. Kenny Dickenson (Co- Producer) has helped enormously in this regard..." - Jazz Views


"[LIVE] KT Tunstall"

"...Stopping the Love was similarly percussive, with keyboardist Kenny Dickenson adding to the stew with his own side-drum (as well as whipping out his trumpet for a crowd-pleasing solo)..." - Daily Telegraph (UK)


"[PRODUCTION] Hogie- River Of Mercy"

"... Supported by a cast of talented musicians – producer and pianist Kenny Dickinson (KT Tunstall, Billy Bragg), C J Hillman (Billy Bragg), Luke Bullen (Joe Strummer & The Mescaleros), Angie Pollock (Goldfrapp), Arnulf Lindner (Ed Harcourt), Steve Weston (Wilco Johnson/Roger Daltry) and Noel Langley (Radiohead/Michael Nyman)- Hogie’s talent is allowed to shine..." - Americana UK


"[LIVE] KT Tunstall"

"...her backing quartet, also including drummer/fiance Luke Bullen and keyboardist/trumpeter Kenny Dickenson was quite fine..." - Country Standard Time


"[PRODUCTION] Hogie- River Of Mercy"

"...Chance meeting with producer Kenny Dickenson (KT Tunstall, Billy Bragg, Rumer) leading to collaboration with Dickenson on keyboards who also assembled renowned musicians CJ Hillman (Billy Bragg) on guitar & pedal steel, Luke Bullen (Joe Strummer & The Mescaleros) on drums, Angie Pollock (Goldfrapp) on backing vocals, Arnulf Lindner (Ed Harcourt) on cello, blues-harp legend Steve 'West' Weston (Wilco Johnson/Roger Daltrey) and trumpet maestro Noel Langley who provides haunting accompaniment in the mariachi of 'Ballad Of Santa Muerte'.

Superbly crafted throughout 'River Of Mercy' visits gospel while allure of 'Think Of Me' conjures love's dream. Idle hands, the devil's work, brushed aside in toe-tapper 'Devil's Got His Work To Do' . Genre hopping remit fulfilled with the harmonica on the R&B of 'Toe The Line', spare two minutes to board the last train and enjoy the ride..." - Fatea


"[PRODUCTION] Hogie- River Of Mercy"

"...excellent support from Kenny Dickenson, who produced and played piano and bass as well as backing vocals, CJ Hillman is on guitars and pedal steel, Luke Bullen on drums and percussion and Hogie himself on lead vocals and guitar. The harmonies are always way above average as is the sympathetic playing from all concerned on these twelve beautifully written Tim Higgins originals..." - American Roots UK


"[PRODUCTION] Noel Langley- Edentide"

"...If you buy one CD from a new artist this year, then you should make sure it is this one..." - Amazon


"[PRODUCTION] Noel Langley- Edentide"

"...the overall effect is astonishingly successful in creating a new work that doesn't rely on cliché or safe conformity but dares to explore..." - All About Jazz
