Kenny Mullins - Age 2.
Some people know early what they are meant to do in life. That's the way it has been for Kenny Mullins. Kenny knew when he got his first guitar at age three that he would be a musician.

    You are listening to Kenny Mullins - "My Own" Man


Kenny Mullins grew up in a musical family and has been playing professionally for over 30 years.  He has toured the US, and Europe and has been an independent recording artist since 1978 when he self-released his first album (on vinyl), “The Tennessee Tapes”.  Since then, he has produced and released numerous original recordings in a variety of formats and styles.

His 1982 single, “Sherry”—a pop-country ballad about a lesbian, was years ahead of its time in addressing the issue of gay love.  This was quite against the trend of the day, particularly coming from a male.

In 1990, Kenny formed A.U.T.E.H (Artists United to End Homelessness) and put together a compilation recording of 22 midcoast bands.  With Kenny’s song, “It Could’ve Been Me”, as the title track, all the profits and proceeds from affiliated concerts helped raise money for and awareness about the nations homeless.

In 1992, Kenny relocated to Nashville, Tennessee.  In 1993, he began recording what would ultimately become the 1998 CD, “Fight/It Could’ve Been Me”.  It was during this period that Kenny’s life spun out of control.  A drug and alcohol user since his teens, he now found himself a serious abuser and addict.  Over the next decade, Kenny would go through several failed relationships, lose his entire family and dozens of close friends, have pre-cancer surgery twice, be hospitalised for depression, be temporarily homeless, give up street drugs and alcohol while becoming addicted to doctors prescription ‘medicine’, survive a tornado, injure his hands in a car wreck and watch his once thriving career come to a complete halt … among other things.

During all these troubling times, Kenny never stopped writing and occasionally performed riveting sets of material by himself and many of the great artists of the last century.  He also kept recording with sessions being held in ’94, ’96 and ’98.

In the summer of 1998, Kenny’s CD “It Could’ve Been Me/Fight”, was released helping, once again, to raise money for and awareness about the nations homeless.

In 2001, Kenny finally kicked his decades-long drug and alcohol addiction and re-emerged with improved health, a new attitude and a new CD.  “Skyline Nashville” is a compelling collection of original songs steeped in country, swing, bluegrass, folk, gospel and Celtic styles.  Someone said it was “like Willie Nelson meets Leonard Cohen, Emmylou Harris and The Chieftains at Earl Scruggs house”.

In 2002, Kenny’s spiritual quest led him to Isha Yoga—a scientific program of breathing practices and postures and Shoonya Meditation.  Brought to America by Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev, an enlightened master from India, Isha yoga program has dramatically enriched and impacted Kenny’s life.  He quit smoking cigarettes after 30 years and is now a vegetarian.  “The improvements to my health and my spirit are nothing short of miraculous,” Kenny says.  Their web address is

Today, Kenny has returned, once again, to his art and has re-embraced his role as an activist with his most recent CD, “Sister Oh Sister” and performances that support, among others, Tennessee Coalition to Abolish State Killing, The Nashville Rescue Mission, Amnesty International, The Magdalene Project Women’s Program and Earthmatters and organizations that work with victims of domestic violence, and support women and native peoples' rights.
