At 14, he started to play the guitar and quickly absorbed the pantheon of 80's and 90's blues and rock guitar greats. After 2 years working by himself, he studied in a music school (with methods inspired by the G.I.T. Berklee method). He became a professional guitarist a few years later on stage (with a number of national bands) and in the studio (Eurovision, Guitar Xtreme). In 2003, Kenny founded the band Workshop whose music ranges from electro to metal styles. In 2005, He arranged Â«Â Tout de MoiÂ Â» for Eurovision Song Contest and sung by Monaco artist, Lise Darly.
