AMC’s promo for Road House features the music of Kieran Mc Kenna. It’s only fitting — the London-based singer-songwriter considers Patrick Swayze his favorite actor.
An established performer who has worked both as a solo artist and as a member of different bands, Mc Kenna is a bit of a troubador having also lived and worked out of Madrid and Paris for many years. His music is a straightforward rock sound with hints of Rockabilly among other influences.
