Belfast singer-songwriter Bap Kennedy has been famous there for many years,
having recorded many acclaimed solo albums over the past decade.
Best known for writing Moonlight Kiss, featured on the soundtrack for the
film Serendipity starring John Cusack and Kate Beckinsale, it looked as though his time had come back in 2005 with the release of the critically-acclaimed Big Picture. A gifted lyricist and singer, Kennedy has veered into a new direction on Let's Start Again, with this batch of songs incorporating Americana, blues and country, to the extent it could have come
straight out of Nashville. The album bristles with excellent compositions, including Revelation Blues, Under My Wing and Fool's Paradise. This is an engaging and mesmerising listen.
