Paul Kennerley BIOGRAPHY

Paul Kennerley

Label(s): A&M Records
Recording Years: 1981-1982

"When I started to write songs, it was very much with Waylon [Jennings] in mind. For an Englishman to write country lyrics about situations in England is impossible, so I hit upon the idea of couching it in this Southern roots thing."

I'd seen [producer Glyn Johns] named more than any other on the backs of my favorite records, so I found out where he lived and sent him a tape. Five weeks later, he called me up and said, 'I've heard your tape and I'd really like to make a record out of it.' I was incredibly lucky."

White Mansions: a Tale of the Civil War 1861-1865 was Kennerley's first aibum with Glyn Johns for A&M Records. The album was supported by advertising and merchandising with 90-second radio spots, and print ads. For retail there was a poster, and browser box. Radio, retail and the press were sent an audio-visual presentation.

The concept album, "The Legend of Jesse James" was A&M's first album directed to the country market. It was released on November 7, 1980.
