Kenton Place Offers Their First Self-Written Track, ‘Haley’s Comet.’
Kenton Place, an alt-rock band from Houston, Texas, puts forward one of the first songs they wrote, recorded, and learned together, ‘Haley’s Comet.’ Released via KP Records in 2021, the song is based on the theme of denial, which is one of the initial phases of grieving while also exhibiting the band’s ability to express their inner emotions authentically. ‘Haley’s Comet’ is an incredible track that will have listeners coming back for more. The song has already amassed a large following, having been streamed thousands of times and played on dozens of international radio stations. Listeners are exposed to their distinct sound, which is infused with rock riffs, infectious basslines, and fist-pumping percussion. The vocal arrangement and melodies far exceed expectations if that weren’t enough. “Haley’s Comet,” which appears on the band’s recently published EP “Terminal,” maintains the pattern established by “Terminal” of passionate and guitar-rifted tracks. According to the Kenton Place band members, “Haley’s Comet” is their most significant song. “It was our very first proper song, and after playing it through a couple of times, we knew it was the one.” The band performed “Haley’s Comet” on bass guitarist Curtis Bird’s penultimate day in town before relocating, generating considerable concern about the band’s future.
Kenton Place is a five-piece band formed in 2018 by childhood friends. It debuted in 2018 with their self-titled debut single, “Pride Never Lasts,” which premiered on Houston’s own 94.5 The Buzz and lasted on the air for nearly a month as the Texas buzz feature. Kenton Place’s music is primarily concerned with sending solid messages to its listeners that can be related to anyone. While the band pays respect to some of rock music’s most iconic sounds and stars, their performances are peppered with innovation and originality. The band comprises childhood buddies – vocalist/guitarist Logan Smalley (Smalls), drummer Noe Hernandez (Fez), lead guitarist Roque Techera (Rock, the hero), and bass guitarist Curtis Bird (Mr. Bird). Together, the members chose the name Kenton Place as a tribute to the place that gave them so many childhood memories and as a way to recognize their ancestors’ contributions.
