Believe What You Wanna Believe
This is the Rev. Kenny saying 'Hello everybody!' Thanks for listening to some of my tracks. Rev.Kenny's 'Believe What You Wanna Believe' is pure honky Tonk music. 13 songs about drinking, loving, laughing and cheating. REVIEW BY: LARS THELL of Sweden, 4 hats (5 hats is the best you can get!) 'Rev. Kenny is a new name for me. His name is Kenny D. Kozlowski and he has written all of the songs on the CD. I don't know if he is a real Reverend that Rev. usually stands for. I was a little confused when I opened the CD and first thought that it was a gospel-CD. But it turns out that isn't the case. Here's tough country music filled with honky-tonkn' and cheatin' songs. The background music is also heavy honky-tonk influenced and if Rev. Kenny would've had a steel with him, this CD would have gotten 5 hats! The guitarist Dave Mick does a great job so the steel's ommission can be forgiven. Of the 13 songs there are 7 that are marvelous and the others aren't all that bad either. 'Her Job to Cry' 'You May Have Broke Your Mama's Heart' 'My Big Ol' Stupid Heart' 'A Cheetah & a Cheater' and 'I Need A Bottle I Can Drink On' are all GREAT SONGS. I also liked 'If Hard Liquor Could Cure Me' and 'Count Me In'. This CD is often played and I can't help but wonder if the entire CD is one big gag. Perhaps the title says it best 'Believe What You Wanna Believe' From Mr. Lars Thell of SCC-Nytt nr 3/2003 Sweden Rev. Kenny was an alterboy at St. John of God's Church in the 'Back of the Yards' in Chicago. My 3rd generation immigrant parents listened to Hank Williams, Charlie Pride, and Lil'Wally. My favorites, Merle Haggard, George Jones, Dolly Parton, System Of A Down, 50 Cent and Jonny Cash. This CD was recorded at Music Loft Recording studio by my friend and producer, Mr. John Kozlick to whom I will always be grateful. Taxi, A & R commented that 'If Hard Liquor Could Cure Me' 'Has A lot of character and works in context. Almost has a Stones like approach in the phrasing and delivery. Harmony adds to the vibe of the track too. it works as a traditional country song with a good live energy and attitude. A bit retro overall - not really pop contemporary perhaps, but cool.' Rev. Kenny studied Theology at Loyola University Chicago, where he received his BBA. Ordained on March 26, 2001 from Univeral Life Church, Modesto,California. He is a minister in good standing and performs legal marriage ceremonies, Love ceremonies, Commitment ceremonies, and memorials and pet funerals. I know that if you can 'Believe What You Wanna Believe', anything is possible. See me live at : The Rev.
