Kenny Roby Uses Country And R&B Influences In New Album

Raleigh musician Kenny Roby

Contributed by the artist

Kenny Roby was raised in South Carolina, but he moved to Raleigh as a young adult and began playing music. 

He started with a punk band.  From there, he formed the influential Six String Drag, which put out two well received country rock records in the late 90s at the same time Whiskey Town was getting rolling.

He's just released "Memories and Birds," his first solo album in seven years and he's scheduled to play with Solas at Friday night's Back Porch Music concert series in Durham.

WUNC's Eric Hodge talks with Roby about how influences from country and R&B work into his new music.
