Don's Tunes Picks Ken's Tunes 

The top YouTube Blues channel, Don's Tunes, recently included one of my earlier productions, Have You Ever Loved A Woman, in their second 1 hour Slow Blues Show.

I am truly humbled.

This recording was originally included on the Hip Pocket Band album Returns and featured Kevin "Dr. C" Crutchfield on lead vocals. 

Kevin was one of the most talented vocalists I have ever worked with.  Like his recording of Dock Of The Bay, Dr. C nailed this track in one take.  We didn't need a second.

He was also a dear friend and though I am sad he is not here with me to enjoy this I believe his spirit is flying around laughing at me right now. 

Please send Don's Tunes some love: https://youtu.be/Yul22_8pAwg and donstunes.com.

CBS Football Scores a Touchdown with Ken's Tunes 

Recent Ken's Tunes "sitings" include three CBS NFL games back in late 2018.   CBS also gave Ken the thumbs up in a feature about college football athletes.

Other new additions to the growing list of TV shows using Ken's tunes are Tanked and Junkyard Empire.

A big thank you to my publishers and the music supervisors picking Ken's tunes!

Dimensions - A Tribute to the Allman Brothers Band  

Just Released!

Dimensions - A Tribute to the Allman Brothers Band

As a young musician growing up in the 70s the Allman Brothers were an amazing source of blues, rock, and country licks.  They were musically mature beyond their years and played with raw passion.  I wonder to this day what Duane would have sounded like had his life not been cut short. Gregg was a soulful songwriter and one of my favorite singers of all time. Midnight Rider is an absolute classic and one of my favorite songs of all time.  

I believe their musical soul lives on through me as it does for so many others who grew up with the ABB.  To say that they were huge influence on my playing would be an understatement.

I hope you enjoy Dimensions. It was a spiritual experience to produce it.

Ken

Great year for music! 

In the past twelve months or so I've had dozens of new placements in TV worldwide including prime time spots on the 2018 Winter Olympics, Chicago PD and The Voice.

It's been a busy year at Sliding Door Studio, too, with several new projects ongoing. 

I'm currently collaborating with flutist Pamela Sklar on several new instrumental pieces.

Also working with The Roadhouse Roosters and Joel Smith to produce their upcoming CD.

 

 

It's been a while... 

My music was featured twice during the 2018 Winter Olympics for men's snowboarding and women's curling.

In yesterday's third episode of the Voice blind auditions my new tune "Slippery River" set the scene for the bio on a four chair turn, Dexter Roberts.

Love to my Mom who passed away in July and to my Dad who passed away ten years ago.  Wish you were here to see this.
