As he’s remained quarantined with girlfriend Raquel Leviss, Kennedy has been focusing on making his at-home studio the perfect place for creating new music.
“We’ve amped it down because it was all done but then through quarantine, and jam sessions and recording sessions. It’s also my gym now. We moved the sofa over here and this is my streaming area now. I love it. My studio actually just opened back up in Burbank so I have been making some trips here and there,” he explained.
