SA Blues Extraordinaire Kenny Hughes is ecstatic to share his new single and video called “19:20”. This is a very special track to Kenny, born of the strange times we are in, and the seemingly perpetual period COVID-19 created (causing subsequent years to feel like one protracted trek towards normality). Kenny is particularly also honoured to have worked with the genius of Albert Frost and Evert Snyman who produced “19:20”.
“Kenny is a fantastic singer and he sure can play guitar” – Evert Snyman (Solo Artist as well as Ruff Majik, Pollinator, Swandy, Mad God & Bombaby).
The music video for “19:20” was directed by Phillru van Achterbergh and edited by The Content Creative. Special thanks goes to Emoya Estate (Bloemfontein) & the Springs Civic Theatre.
Here are the “19:20” lyrics
Clip my wings let me start again
It might be hard but it’s not the end
Meet me there won’t you meet me there
The queens outside you’ve got to beware
Rain outside reminds me of home
Far away and all alone
A quiet place for my demons to escape
It’s the only way to isolate
Test me now see if I’m clean
Or littered with sickened disease
Split my brow and break my knees
Festered dreams hang on every breeze
In a world that’s dominated by crappy music on the radio airwaves, “19:20” definitely stands out as one of the coolest tracks that I’ve heard by an artist in 2021. I’m curious to see what Kenny Hughes is going to throw our way in the near future and I hope I get to see him play a show again soon.
