Ken Stead

January 30, 2015 @ 8:00 pm

Ken has always been a singer and a musician. At nine, he appeared in a Broadway version of “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” alongside Donny Osmond. The money he earned from his appearances was used to purchase a much loved piano and he was soon playing tunes by ear. Piano eventually gave way to guitar and musical theatre evolved into something else initially – and with some family consternation-rap. Blond-haired kid, musical theatre, big, big voice, and… rap. Paints a picture, doesn’t it?

Ken tells the story of being forced to go to the Edmonton Folk Fest as a punishment from his mother. He had no idea he was about to take a step into a world he had never quite imagined existed. And then he heard Eric Bibb perform, opening the door to that moment of magic that raised the hair on his skin and touched something deep in his soul. Ken’s life changed. He began to write music that takes us on journeys we do not expect when we first sit down to listen. We are drawn in by his smile, his quiet charm and gentle way of talking. Today he writes of his experiences, his joy with life and the world around him, his faith and hope that love and peace will always prevail.
