Victor Kennedy You Yangs

Victor Kennedy, like all classic storytellers, has travelled many miles and crossed many county lines, and in the process has gleaned much from his travels, transporting his tales of characters on the road and acute observations into his songs. Along with his band of musical cohorts, Victor Kennedy You Yangs have birthed a debut album Ride The Blizzard which sweeps you away into that world of rich storytelling.

Victor’s band features musicians from impressive pedigree and all are impassioned musicians who draw upon a wealth borne from years of experience performing in notable Australian bands from the past four decades such as The Birthday Party, Paul Kelly & The Dots, The Slaughtermen, Lobby Loyde etc., namely Tim Brosnan on guitar, David Tillotson on bass, along with both Des Hefner and Jim Richter on drums. Victor handles vocals, guitar and keyboards.

Like all good art this collage of music contains equal parts light and shade. At times a wild ride, at others a lilting, soft tapestry, Ride The Blizzard captures the listener’s attention and takes them on a musical and poetic journey. Containing nine self-penned tracks which paint a portrait from Victor’s diverse travels, alongside one David Bowie cover, he’s gleaned imagery and words whilst traversing the planet and shoehorned them into an outpouring of his soul.
