Philadelphia based singer/songwriter Kenny Ferrier came down to Baltimore back in October, 2013 for an interview, on air performance and Coffee House performance for WLOY and Loyola. During his Coffee House he brought along his looper and took too Loyola students put on stage with him to help him harmonize. The crowd was very engaged and he had the chance to play quite a few originals as well as some classic covers. When Kat and I interviewed him we had the opportunity to ask him pressing, intriguing questions, including how he approaches his writing process, who his favorite Power Ranger is and who influences him. He’s is a very talented musician and songwriter and we are thankful to have had him share some of his music with us. Listen in to the full interview and enjoy some of his original songs.

Main character Haley Walker is a single mom (of a teen) and runs a business–understandably, for her, the dating scene is extremely difficult. A cross between performance and confession, Bad Dates is the story of a very busy woman trying to find love. You will find yourself enthralled by Haley Walker’s story; you’ll laugh and you’ll wince. Enjoy this great performance, and if you’re on the dating scene, good luck out there.
For $26 you can see this hilarious new show! Visit the website for more information.
