Sweat Equity is pleased to announce 'Open Wound in a Pool of Sharks,' the debut solo EP from artist Richard Kennedy.

Drawing from a wealth of talent in New York and abroad, the release sees Kennedy diving into a series of sultry slow-burners, following a path through path through emotional turmoil, self actualization and reconciliation, ultimately finding redemption through his own voice, and the power of self-articulation, all scored by track collaborations with Michael Promassit (Bottoms), Bruno Coviello (Light Asylum), Yves Tumor (PAN Records), Jeremiah Meece (Nina Pop), and Stress (representing the home team).

Recorded over the past year, Richard Kennedy's 'Open Wound...' is a powerful introduction to the artist's work and voice.
