Leny’s Girl has Blues at its roots and a train ride through Country, Rock and back again. Fronted by vocalist Kasey Mckenzie who is a accomplished stage performer who recently starred in the lead role as Eva Perón in a stage production of Evita. Her Mezzo-Soprano combines with a mixture of crazy intricate guitar solos as well as smooth slide guitar from Beggsy and haunting harmonica from Cookie. All this is poured over a solid serving from the engine room of drums (Brownie) and Bass (Tom Raw).
Leny’s Girl is named in memory of Kasey’s mother who sadly passed away of Motor Neurone Disease (MND). Kasey has since given birth to a beautiful baby girl named Hendrix (very Rock and Roll!). Hendrix is Leny’s Girl’s Girl!
The band released their debut album 'Walk Outside Again' in March 2019 which has been reviewed in several magazines around the world including 'Blues Matters', Maverick Magazine, Bluesblast Magazine and online publications. The track 'Devil with a Gun' has reached No 9 in the Australian Blues charts. The album 'Walk Outside Again' has been featured on several radio shows in Australia and abroad.
