It is rare for a young artist to be able to escape genre classification as smoothly as Mo Kenney. The wide stylistic scope of her first record was embraced, not criticized, as is reflected in the fact that it earned Mo a Canadian Folk Music Award for New/Emerging Artist of the Year an East Coast Music Award for Pop Recording of the Year, and 3 Nova Scotia Music Awards. “The first record is sometimes folk and sometimes pop,” explains Mo. “To have my foot in a couple of different genres and have people recognise that is cool.” The key album track “Sucker” (a CBC Radio favourite) also brought Kenney the prestigious 2013 SOCAN Songwriting Prize, confirmation of her early potential as a fresh and original songwriting talent.
