The eagerly awaited first Enda Kenny release since 2019 is a powerful and poignant acoustic collection of sixteen songs, including ten brand new originals, from Australia's best folk entertainer. Produced locally by Mark Woods, (long time stadium sound for Men at Work and the late great Tina Turner) and featuring the superb accompaniment of Dave O'Neill. This is Kenny's 10th independent album and, without a doubt, his finest yet. Witty and intelligent songs with all the wry humour we've come to expect from a songwriter with a growing international reputation.

Enda's latest release highlights the songwriter and entertainer we have come to know and love and is the perfect companion to the timeless Heart Tattoo. The trademark humour is ever present and Vigil, his thoughtful tribute to Jill Meagher and Eurydice Dixon, shows yet again that he is among the best when it comes to issues based songwriting.

Enda Kenny – Heart Tattoo CD Review by Graham Blackley Heart Tattoo is the seventh studio album by Melbourne-based singer, songwriter and guitarist Enda Kenny. Listening to this accomplished album, it doesn’t take long to understand why the Irish-born Kenny has won the Port Fairy Folk Festival songwriting award on two occasions as his lyrics envelop the listener into vividly drawn worlds that inspire both recognition and understanding. On opening track King St. he playfully yet astutely encapsulates the character of so much nocturnal street-life when he drawls, “There ain’t no kings on King Street/ in the hours before the dawn/No princes on that Princes Bridge/from midnight until morn.” On the tender Jodie, a song which has the sophisticated lilt of Leonard Cohen’s classic work, Kenny ably (and with gentle humour) conjures the significance of those everyday relationships that give our lives both richness and colour whilst making us feel part of the world in which we live: “You can walk in feelin’/Like you haven’t got a dime/ And leave like you’re a millionaire/All it takes is thirty minutes of her time/ And did I mention? She cuts hair.” The rich seams of melody that run through this album complement the evocative lyrics while the musicianship on display is of the highest order. Heart Tattoo is a sterling example of modern and sophisticated folk music at its best. On tradandnow.com

"Kenny's power lies in his ability to express his feelings and moods with great musical and lyrical precision. He knows how words and music work together and, when that knowledge is attached to his warm, Irish voice and the excellent accompaniment (including Redgum's Hugh McDonald and Kavisha Mazzella) he produces folk-based music of the highest
