Biography

Born and raised in New York City by his traditionally religious grandmother, Ken Dahl found his passion for music in a pretty common place -- the church. But he discovered his talent in a pretty uncommon way -- during a suspension from school.

Although a bright student, Ken Dahl was a troublesome one. He often found himself in the dean's office, and eventually his behavior landed him an official suspension. His grandmother was infuriated, and took away all of Ken's treasured possessions as punishment.

There was no television, no radio, and absolutely no phone calls. Ken Dahl had only a sketch book and a pen to keep him company. First, he began drawing cartoons. Once that became mundane, he started writing. He wrote poetry, simple rhymes, but things that he felt deep inside. There was a need to express himself, and he found a way to do it.

Once the suspension ended, Ken Dahl didn't stop writing. Eventually, he developed songs. Using melodies to well-known songs, he replaced the lyrics with those of his own. The very first song he wrote, "Guide Me Dear Lord", impressed and touched his family. They found it hard to believe that he penned the lyrics himself.

Throughout the years, Ken Dahl experienced many things growing into his adulthood. He felt love, he felt heartbreak. Some days he felt amazing, and was bouncing off the walls. Other days felt as if a cloud had been cast right above his head.

After years of modeling his songs after other artist's songs, Ken Dahl finally decided he wanted to be completely honest and open with all of these experiences. He decided to put all of him on showcase for the world.

It turned out that the same personality that got him in big trouble as a kid -- loud, explicit, comedic, and brutally honest -- helped him develop his own identity as an artist.
