Mark Kenington is an indie pop/rock musician hailing from the historic town of ‘Camulodunum’ Colchester in th UK.

Kenington grew up listening to her mother playing the baby grand and wearing out old ELO and Bay City Rollers LPs.

Moving to NZ in 2004, Kenington adopted the kiwi ‘give it a go’ attitiude and took up singing, guitar and piano lessons. He honed his songwriting skills and began frequenting open mic evenings.

A chance meeting with Mike Chunn put Mark in touch with producer and engineer Andrew Buckton. What started as a vague idea of making an EP turned into a full album project and well and truly planted the music making seed.

Mark writes honest, reflective songs of a timeless nature wrapped in lush, catchy melodies. Songs that often mix a positive vibe with a darker and deeper lyrical message.

Kenington released his debut album Going Nowhere (Faster Than You) on April 28th 2017, receiving warm praise.

If you’re a fan of crunchy guitar pop riffs and soft melody with a Brit indie feels, this album is for you.


‘Going Nowhere (Faster Than You) is an exciting debut from an accomplished artist we haven’t heard much about yet. Hopefully the promoses these songs bring mean there will be more to come’
