Kennedy Shaw is a 19-year-old singer-songwriter and activist, who has “hit the music scene with a fresh take on 80s synth-pop and a 90s girl punk undertone.” Growing up in rural South Jersey, Shaw taught herself the piano and could play fluently by the age of 7. Kennedy got her start in the local music scene through performing at coffee shops and playing the keys at local bars, eventually releasing her debut EP “Makeout Machine,” in 2016 and single “Forget About It,” in 2017. Ramona Magazine, Australia’s go-to feminist guide, describes Kennedy as having a “frankness and maturity beyond her years…wittily [narrating] the voice of her generation and the intricacies of the female experience.”
By 2018, she released a full length album “Girl Almighty,” a powerful and rebellious coming of age — driven by her powerhouse of a voice — while also featuring a candidness that has since been Kennedy’s trademark. “Plastik Nikon” follows the her most recent pop release “Boys,” a luscious synth-based tune also co-produced by Bob Bowling. Now based in Philadelphia, Kennedy continues to create music in hopes of empowering all femme-identifying individuals.
