Ken Holt and Who I Am
Ken chose the name Who I Am for his music because it calls for authenticity. When recording, performing live, or streaming, Ken’s goal is that the music played, the vibe and interaction with listeners would be a clear representation of the purpose of Who I Am.
The Purpose of Who I Am is to create a welcoming community based upon a love and appreciation for music and a love and respect for all people. This means that songs written and songs performed can all be viewed through the lens of this statement.
Celebrating 50 Years of music, Ken was the kid playing Mitch Ryder hits in the High School gym. After Jacksonville University, Ken and band played “every college and bar in New England.” Opening slots for Charlie Daniels, ZZ Top, Blue Oyster Cult, The Outlaws, 38 Special, Fog Hat and many others all continued the education. At the Boston Garden, The Who asked, are you only going to use those Fender Twin Reverbs? Yes.
Two albums with MCA, touring, all added road worthy experience. After earning 2 Masters Degrees, Ken served as music leader throughout the Southeast for Middle and High School conferences. One acoustic guitar and 1,000 voices can be powerful.
Consistent with his Purpose statement, Ken continues to nurture his love and appreciation for music.. The founder of Lanny Boy Music L.L.C., Ken works daily on writing and recording a new blend of Americana music. NEW? We all bring different things to the party. The musical influences that reverberate through Ken’s songbook, the lyrics that spring from Ken’s Life experience, the chords that fall into place because they are so comfortably familiar or uniquely original, ALL of these factors create a collage or new “blend” of music. Does Ken’s voice sound like anyone else’s voice? Described as interesting, even quirky, Ken’s vocal is uniquely Ken’s.
The GOAL today is to earn Ken a fan Nomination for the Independent Music Awards. Your VOTE would be greatly appreciated! Thank you for reading, watching and listening. Every vote counts! Peace.
