Once you listen to The Band Hennessy I think you’ll agree they have something special and unique about their music. I think having 2 female lead vocals both with extremely different sounds gives the band a pop appeal that few acts possess in today’s scene. I get excited every time I find a new up and coming band to not only feature here on the site but also to become a fan of their music.”
