Abraham Kenny is an enigmatic Australian musician who creates cool melancholic music.

The artist’s biography is truly colorful: a trained drummer who left his native Australia over a decade ago and moved to Northern Europe, eventually finding the Baltic States, where he uncovered his creative spirit in the post-Soviet gloom. Namely the abandoned concert hall Linnahall where he lived, becoming a cult figure in Tallinn’s underground.

The long-concealed musician, once known as «Australian Tsoi» by Russian music press, has performed under the pseudonyms The Diamond Blow and Ylisten. Admitting that he prefers most of all to perform in Siberia because there he is still able to find a drop of romanticism. This snippet of confession speaks volumes about Abraham’s music: despairing, often bleak and full of longing.
