KenM Bio

I started seriously writing songs about thirty years ago. I now live in Nashville and am part of the songwriting team "The Shoeless Joes".

Years ago my oldest sister handed down to me an old Gibson acoustic guitar and I learned about eight or so chords. Strumming away, I started pulling song lyrics out of the thing. Dozens of them.
I found out I could have 'demo' songs made, and I sent one of the lyric sheets and a couple of ideas to a company in Nashville to see what might happen. The song was produced and I was hooked. I found other producers and had other demos made. After I had a few in hand, I started mailing to music publishers. One found its way to a company in Los Angeles. The owner saw something in it and he contacted me. We talked for some time about it and the music industry in general. He gave me the name and number of his producer, and said to give him a call. I have been lucky enough since then to 'sign' oodles of songs I have written and love watching what happens with them.

A very talented and gifted music producer in New York keeps telling me 'You only ride this rocket once', and he is so right. The people I have dealt with have all been truly amazing. Lesson 101 in this businesses is that you cannot possibly get anywhere by yourself. I want to say 'Thank You' to all the people who have helped, guided, inspired, listened, raised, put up with, motivated and affected me on the amazing rocket ride.
