DB.KINNEY is a CT-based rock group performing an energetic yet tastefully crafted song mix with a rich sound that will leave listeners with a satisfying rock experience.
Performing in several different CT area bands over the years, CT-native, DB.Kinney (a.k.a., David Kinney) now finds meaning and purpose making his own music, using his own name. Whether performing solo-acoustic sets, or as a duo or power-trio – consisting of DB (guitar, vocals), Brandon Novak (drums), and Hish (bass, backing vocals).
DB.KINNEY’s eclectic musical tastes transcends the mundane into a energetically charged yet dynamically heart-felt rock performance.
Drummer – Brandon Novak has been hitting the skins since his youth and has been performing in CT bands ever since. Touring with the Coyote River Band, the Steve Dunn Acoustic Trio and others. Brandon now brings his professionalism, strong sense of rhythm and wealth of experience that rounds out the DB.KINNEY sound.
Bassist and backing vocals – Hishiam Leil or “Hish” is an experienced eclectic player with his fingers in many stylings. His solid disciplined bass work pays-off in his energetic live performances with DB.KINNEY.
DB.KINNEY’s original release, Blind Side Mirror, is a bright and colorful rock EP which contains the single, Killing Time which was featured on Hartford CT’s Radio 104.1 Homebrew, New Haven’s 99.1 WPLR’s Local Band Show and has received many glowing reviews. Overtones of bands such as Toad The Wet Sprocket and The BoDeans, and others immediately come to mind in this airy and ambient number of loss, regret, and hope for change…DB.Kinney’s music has been described as a refreshing post-punk pop-rock revival.
