Patrick Kennison - Lita Ford/Heaven Below
Patrick Kennison Heaven Below frontman and guitarist for Lita Ford. Most people think of San Antonio, TX as the home of the Alamo, but for Patrick Kennison his hometown was the sacred breeding ground for hard rock and heavy metal. By age 15 Patrick had already earned his stripes as a hometown guitar hero, winning local guitar competitions and several battle of the bands. By the end of 1999, Patrick landed a major label deal with Sony/Columbia with the band he founded, The Union Underground. A handful of world tours, including Ozzfest 2001 and two certified gold albums later, his original band imploded from the usual industry cliche pitfalls. Rather than burn out or fade away, Patrick immediately moved to Los Angeles and was enlisted to play on legendary albums by Rob Zombie, Jani Lane, and even William Shatner. With platinum accolades under his belt, he formed the band Heaven Below that would see him as the guitar-slinging frontman. Heaven Below has already forged a path to success via millions of streams and national radio play of their active rock charting song "When Daylight Dies". In 2014 the legendary Lita Ford hired Patrick as her lead guitarist. Between fronting his own band and gracing stages all around the world with one of the first females in hard rock, Patrick's rise to stardom continues to reach new heights.
