Time to Fly is an album of the moment – the moment when you find your own space and have the confidence to fill it; the moment when you’re ready to go and your heart sings; the moment when your losses turn to gains and your stories can be told. Fiona Kennedy will surprise you.
Fiona Kennedy collaborates with some of America’s and Scotland’s finest songwriters, including Beth Nielsen Chapman, Marcus Hummon, Calum MacColl and Ross Wilson (aka Blue Rose Code).
Fresh twists on classic Nashville songs and new songs woven together to tell a story of life. Fiona Kennedy’s life path has been an unusual one – from being a child performer with her musician parents, through TV, broadcasting, acting, motherhood and a singing career of her own. Her experiences may be unique but the emotional highs and lows are universal and she delivers her myriad stories straight from the heart.
Time to Fly is therapy without the therapist and as honest a story as you can tell. Recorded by legendary record producer Calum Malcolm (The Blue Nile, Prefab Sprout, Mark Knopfler) with an all-star cast of co-writers and musicians: Beth Nielsen Chapman, Marcus Hummon, songwriter, guitarist & backing vocalist Calum MacColl (Eddi Reader, Black, Peggy Seeger), bass player Simon Edwards (Talk Talk, Beth Gibbons, Fairground Attraction), drummer Harry Mead (Dagny, Union J, Ronan Keating) and fiddle & whistle player John McCusker (Danny Thompson, Kate Rusby, Paul Weller).
