Guthrie Kennard

Guthrie originally came west in 1968, moving there to stay in 1971. During this time he started playing with Smokin’ Joe Kubek. Along with many other Texas artists.

After a career of collaboration with some great musicians, Guthrie finally broke out on his own as a singer / songwriter to tell his own story on his first CD “Ranch Road 12” produced by legendary Texas troubadour Ray Wylie Hubbard. Now with his newest projects “Unmade Beds” released October 2009 and “Matchbox” which Ray Wylie Hubbard also produced and performed on along with Guthrie to be released in early 2010. Guthrie continues to brand his own unique style of music.

“With a voice that recalls Bob Dylan and Keith Richards, Kennard spins his tales of rural disaffection against a backdrop of rough-hewed melodies and backwoods percussion, classic Texas music, a soundtrack to the Hill Country, and the slow country songs sound like a drive on patchy, paved roads that lead to all sorts of interesting places.”
