KENK is an award-winning songwriter whose music is best described as “guitar-driven, foot-tappin’ acoustic rock and roll, with modern and classic influences and a strong dose of guitar shredding”. His songs speak of life, love, and gratitude mixed within stories of car rides, tattoos, and trailers. KENK’s sound is personal, soulful, and bleeds into his songs and live performances.
“Everything So Beautiful“, KENK’s 2015 cd release, continues to be streamed via Spotify and iTunes. His songs have been used in movies, documentaries, and television morning news theme song. The lyrics, the harmony, the beats, the guitar, the voices: it’s all just good feeling.
Concerts, Clubs and Events
KENK is a seasoned performer who puts on a fun and energetic live show, and enjoys playing both original and cover music. “I like to take a cover song that I love and make it mine,” he explains, “I’m not so concerned with playing it like the recording. It’s fun to bring your own personality to the song. Of course, it can’t suck.” He can frequently be found playing on outdoor patios, craft breweries, festivals, and private parties in the Denver area.
When performing as a solo act, he accompanies himself with his pseudo-band, “The Ghost Boys” – a looper he uses to build unique, multi-layered arrangements live and on the spot. It’s all done “live” and ensures a unique and different rendition every performance. He also performs with “KENK & the Criminals”, a wailing three-piece rock band.
